Advanced topics in separation methods including: selection of separation methods, membrane separations, pervaporation, ion exchange, adsorption, multi-component distillation, and liquid-liquid extraction.
Advanced topics in separation methods including: packed column distillation, liquid-liquid extraction, advanced adsorption processes, advanced membrane separation, particle technology, supercritical technology, advanced drying and (de-) humidification.Aim:This course develops further the study of separation methods introduced in ENCH396. It aims to provide understanding of, and the ability to analyse, a wider range of process separation operations and to select the appropriate technology for a particular separation and thus provides knowledge and skills needed in ENCH494 (Process Design 3) and useful to chemical and process engineering graduates. The course will cover the following topics:• Drying technology and (de-) humidification • Packed column and multi-component distillation • Advanced membrane separation • Advanced adsorption processes • Separations in environmental engineering • Introduction to supercritical technology
At the end of the course the students are expected to be able to:- Develop process designs for any of the separations covered with a fundamental understanding of the physical and chemical phenomena occurring.- Be able to select appropriate separation techniques for chemical processing from separations covered in ENCH396, ENCH496 and others.- Carry out detailed design calculations for separation processes.
Students must attend one activity from each section.
