**Plant Design Requirements**

- Process Evaluation
- Reliability
- Metallurgy
- Safety o Control

**Capital Estimation**– evaluation of the plant project**Total Capital Investment**= Fixed Capital Investment + Working Capital [**TCI = FCI + WC ]**

- Working Capital – 10% – 20% of the capital investment
*(Note: If the percentage is not given, use 15% as default)*

**COST INDEX**

**Chemical Engineering Plant Cost Index (CEPCI)**– use this for*CHEMICAL PLANTS***Marshal and Swift Index**– use for*CHEMICAL EQUIPMENT***Nelson- Farrar Index–**use for*PETROLEUM REFINERY*

**[TABBING GUIDE: Check Page 9 -13, COST INDEX TABLE , Perry’s ChE Handbook 8th Edition]**

**SOLVING PROBLEM GUIDE:**

*Example, if you wish to find the diameter of the tank (Dt) you need to know the volume first (V) and so on.*

- Volume (V)
- Diameter of Tank (Dt)
- Diameter of the impeller (Di)
- Reynold Number of the Impeller (NRT,I)
- Power Number (Np)
- Power Requirement (P)
