Available to level 3 chemical engineering students.
This Subject is divided in two main parts: mass transport processes and unit operations. The 1st part consists of the fundamentals of mass transport in gases, liquids and solids, including the mass transport models for molecular diffusion, convective mass transfer coefficient, interphase mass transfer, Fick's law and models for mass transfer coefficients. The 2nd part contains the application of mass transfer mechanisms in separation processes, such as absorption and stripping, liquid-liquid extraction, membrane separation, adsorption, drying, crystallisation and distillation. McCabe-Thiele method will be introduced for the design and calculation of equipment dimensions.
