Troubleshooting refinery process equpment is a challenge for engineers and operators. The author draws from his 30 years of experience in solving process equipment and operating problems and details specific steps when troubleshooting process operations. The approach is rooted in practical experience and not in theoretical concepts. Forget complex math—this is a text for people working to solve refinery field problems. This book has been the refinery industry standard for field troubleshooting operations since it's first edition in 1980 and is grounded in common refinery malfunctions and failures—the sort that we must confront daily. Each chapter concludes with a valuable troubleshooting checklist. The book is used as a text in Lieberman's popular refinery troubleshooting seminar.
