Separation Principles II - SEP4701

Year module NQF level: 7 Credits: 12
Module presented in Module presented online
Purpose: The aim of this module is to deepen the student's knowledge of separation principles by focussing on multicomponent mixture distillation, multicomponent gas absorbtion/stripping, extraction, crystallization and multiple -effect evaporation operations. Efficient short-cut methods for multi-components separations will be explored and thereafter the principles behind accurate numerical solution procedures for multicomponent distillation and absorption/stripping processes will be briefly intoduced. The basic design principles and optimal process stages of multiple stage evaporation and crystallization processes will be considered. The knowledge obtained in this course will assist students with troubleshooting, optimization and designing of a complex separation systems in a chemical plant.
