Separation Principles II - SEP4701

Honours Year module NQF level: 7 Credits: 12
Module presented in English Module presented online
Co-requisite: CEM4702
Purpose: The aim of this module is to deepen the student's knowledge of separation principles by focussing on multicomponent mixture distillation, multicomponent gas absorption/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 introduced. 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.
