This course covers the fundamental concepts of equilibrium and rate-based analysis of separation processes, and gives examples of relevant separation processes. It introduces the concept and analysis of a unit operation as applied to separation processes and demonstrates the analysis of relevant separation processes by applying mass and energy balance methods.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
A theoretical understanding of the concepts of evaporation processes of liquids with and without boiling point rise, vapour liquid equilibrium (Raoult's law/Henry's law), the phase rule, and relative volatility are taught. The theory and design of Evaporators, Absorption, and Distillation unit operations are delivered in depth including: single and multi-effect evaporators; flash, batch, and continuous distillation using single or multiple stages; overall efficiencies and Murphree tray/point efficiencies; single and multi-stage adsorption. Graphical methods are also covered (McCabe-Thiele, Ponchon-Savarit) as well as NTU based design for absorbers.
