Chemical engineering separation operations including distillation, evaporation, humidification/dehumidification, drying, gas absorption, filtration, centrifugation and crystallisation.
This course deals with process operations involving separations. The separation operations considered include: drying, (de-)humidification, membranes, leaching/washing, crystallization, ion exchange, distillation, gas absorption and liquid-liquid extraction.
At the end of the course the students are expected to be able to:Understand and analyse specific separation processes including distillation, gas absorption etc.Select appropriate separation techniques for chemical processing.Carry out detailed design calculations for separation processes.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award
Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.
