Need to quickly estimate the capital cost of a new piece of equipment for an economics evaluation?

Try Matches' Process Equipment Cost Estimates. This tool from consulting company Matches will give you a fair estimate of the capital cost of many pieces of chemical engineering equipment like pumps, blowers, compressors, reactors, heat exchangers, etc.  Some of my peers have said it's impressively accurate for a free service, at least for "normal" sized equipment.

Do you need an installed cost instead of a capital cost? For very rough work, consider checking out the Lang Factor and this Lang factor discussion thread.
