    Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that applies physical sciences (physics and chemistry) and life sciences (microbiology and biochemistry) together with applied mathematics and economics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use chemicals, materials and energy. Essentially, chemical engineers design large-scale processes that convert chemicals, raw materials, living cells, microorganisms and energy into useful forms and products. Responsibilities of Chemical Engineers ■ Specifically, chemical engineers improve food processing techniques, and methods of producing fertilizers, to increase the quantity and quality of available food. ■ They also construct the synthetic fibers that make our clothes more comfortable and water resistant; they develop methods to mass-produce drugs, making them more affordable; and they create safer, more efficient methods of refining petroleum products, making energy and chemical sources more productive and cost effective. ■ Chemical engineers also develop solutions to environmental problems, such as pollution control and remediation. ■ And yes, they process chemicals, which are used to make or improve just about everything you see around you. Chemical engineers face many of the same challenges that other professionals face, and they meet these challenges by applying their technical knowledge, communication and teamwork skills; the most up-to-date practices available; and hard work. Benefits include financial reward, recognition within industry and society, and the gratification that comes from working with the processes of nature to meet the needs of society.

    A cooling tower uses evaporative cooling for creating cooling media to be used for heat exchange. Cooling towers also have a lot of water conditioning operations viz. Blowdown, chlorination, water makeup etc A heat exchanger is of various types with a single purpose of energy exchange in terms of heat. It may have both latent and sensible or just sensible heat exchange.

    Fauling means scaling on the inner or outer side of tube wall..due to increasing the scaling..resistance increase..If you think in common way then You can realize that heat transfer should be decrease by increasing the fauling..and in technical way ,the answers are already given in above comment

    From the album Process Flow Diagrams

    Introduction • Ethylene oxide is produced by the oxidation of ethylene using air. • Ethanolamines are produced using the series reaction scheme of ethylene oxide with ammonia. • Ethanolamines are significantly used as absorbents to remove CO2 and H2S from process gas streams. Reactions • C2 H4 + 0.5 O2→ CH2 O.CH2O • Ethylene to air ratio: 3 – 10 % • Side reaction products: CO2 , H2O • Catalyst: Silver oxide on alumina • Operating temperature and pressure: 250 – 300°C and 120 – 300 psi • Supressing agent for side reactions: Ethylene dichloride • Reaction is exothermic • Air and ethylene are separate compressed and along with recycle stream are sent to the shell and tube reactor. • The reactor is fed on the shell side with Dowtherm fluid that serves to maintain the reaction temperature. A dowtherm fluid is a heat transfer fluid , which is a mixture of two very stable compounds, biphenyl and diphenyl oxide. The fluid is dyed clear to light yellow to aid in leak detection. • The hot dowtherm fluid from the reactor is sent to a waste heat recovery boiler to generate steam. • The vapour stream is cooled using a integrated heat exchanger using the unreacted vapour stream generated from an absorber. • The vapour stream is then sent to the heat integrated exchanger and is then sent back to the reactor and a fraction of that is purged to eliminate the accumulation of inerts such as Nitrogen and Argon. • The product vapors are compressed and sent to a water absorber which absorbs ethylene oxide from the feed vapors. Eventually, the ethylene oxide rich water stream is sent to a stripper which desorbs the ethylene oxide + water as vapour and generates the regenerated water as bottom product. The regenerated water reaches the absorber through a heat integrated exchanger. • The ethylene oxide + water vapour mixture is compressed (to about 4 - 5 atms) and then sent to a stripper to generate light ends + H2O as a top product and the bottom product is then sent to another fractionators to produce ethylene oxide as top product. The heavy ends are obtained as bottom product.

    You cannot measure entropy of any system at any point. You can only measure the change in entropy of system by determining the state of system. Only entropy known is the one given by third law of thermodynamics which says the entropy of perfectly crystalline solid at 0 K temperature is zero.

    Various software useful to chem enggs and there applications : chemcad n aspen hyses aspen hysys is used for petrochemical and oil and gas industry, where as aspen plus and chemcad are used for speciality chemical and pharma. These are simulation softwares as u know all these and are basically used for predicting the results for ur system. Please note these are not design s/w. For example u can simulate a exchager in aspen hysys but for designing u need to use HTRI.Similarly there are softwares like korf which are used for pump hydraulics.For doing network hydraulics pipenet is used. For example cooling water network or steam network. For doing cross country pipeline olga can ve used. For sizing flare flarenet is used. For hazop studies one can use pha pro. For flare analysis wrt to burner flaresim is used. Apart from these are other software available like flowmaster this is used for surge analysis. So these are the major software used for designing in oil and gas sector.

    The pressure which is termed in equation is static pressure (pressure head), the pressure exerting on wall of the pipe. When the pipe diameter is reduced, this pressure energy is converted into velocity head. Bernoulli eqn is nothing but law of conservation of energy. Do not confuse velocity head as pressure. Hang two ballons and blow air between them, they will come near to each other. As you blow air, velocity increases, pressure reduces between them. Surrounding atm press will force the ballon to come closer. Other eg of P2<P1, we use this phenomenon in spray pumps, ejecters.

    In counter flow the difference in temperature between hot fluid & cold is almost const. and so that heat transfer takes place longer but in case of parallel flow the difference in temperature continuously decreases so that transfer of heat decreases continuously.
