Several subsystems contain fluid handling machinery: Pumps, compressors, valves etc. These components require special care, as they probably will not be available on the scale of the plant, without modification. These components must be designed for:
- High efficiency
- Long lifetime
- Corrosion/fouling resistance
- Low cost manufacturing
Each part in the system has different demands when it comes to pressure, composition & temperature. However, the basic design guidelines / models should be reusable.
