Chemical engineering separation operations including distillation, evaporation, humidification/dehumidification, drying, gas absorption, filtration, centrifugation and crystallisation.
At the end of the course the students are expected to be able to:Understand the value and context of separation processes.Understand the fundamental phenomena utilized in separation processes.Develop skills for identifying the key separation problem and developing effective solutions.Understand and analyse specific separation processes including distillation, gas absorption etc.Select appropriate separation techniques for chemical processing.Relate fundamental separation phenomena to equipment design and operation.Carry out design calculations for separation processes.
