Advanced topics in separation methods including: packed column and multicomponent distillations, evaporation, advanced membrane separations, adsorption, supercritical technology, separations in environmental engineering, sedimentation and centrifugation.
The course covers:• Packed column distillation, multicomponent distillation• Evaporation• Membrane separations• Pervaporation• Adsorption processes• Liquid-liquid extraction• Air quality control• Separations in environmental engineering• Supercritical fluid technology
Students should be able to:Develop process designs for any of the separations covered with a fundamental understanding of the physical and chemical phenomena occurring.Carry out detailed design calculations for separation processesBe able 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.
36 lectures, 1 test and 1 assignment. Physical attendance at all lectures is highly encouraged. Students who attend lectures regularly are likely to perform better in the course.
