Diploma Year module NQF level: 6 Credits: 12
Module presented in English
Pre-requisite: MAT1581, CHF1501 & CHF2601 Co-requisite: TRP2601 & CEMPRB3
Purpose: The purpose of this module is to introduce the student to fundamental priciples that apply to the separation of chemical mixtures. The separation processes discussed in this module including both equilibrium and dynamic modeling and a brief overview of representative industrial processes. It is essential for students to have fundumental understanding of the important unit operations used in separation, which they will encounter in chemical industry processes. The course covers ideal binary distilation, single effect evaporation, adsorbtion, gas absorption/stipping, and drying. The knowledge obtained in this course will assist students with operating and troubleshooting these unit operations in the chemical plant.
