ERT 318/4 UNIT OPERATIONS
This course includes introduction to mass transfer theories and applications followed by specialized unit operations including gas absorption, distillation, adsorption, liquid-liquid extraction, solid-liquid extraction (leaching), membrane separation process, filtration and centrifugation. The theory is supported by performing laboratory experiments.
Ability to develop a basic design for single effect and multiple-effect evaporators, packed cooling towers.
Ability to develop and evaluate a basic design for gas-liquid separation and vapour-liquid separation equipment.
Ability to characterize solid particle, identify different types of size reduction equipment, and to apply equation for one-dimensional motion of particles through a fluid.
