Students will learn the fundamentals concepts related to molecular separations in industrial processes. Students will employ these concepts to design equilibrium-stage and rate-limited processes for the separation of homogeneous mixture.
Intended Learning Outcome
By the end of the course, students should be able to
Ø Use of energy separating agent (ESA) and mass separating agent (MSA) for separating chemical mixtures.
Ø Calculate composition of streams leaving a separation process using the concepts of mass and energy balances, phase equilibria, mass transfer and diffusion.
Ø Design equilibrium-stage separation process (number of stages, concentration of streams entering or leaving the processes) for the desired outlet concentration from a given feed.
