SPCH 008 : Chemical And Separation Processes

  • course description:

    This course introduces binary and multicomponent distillation, liquid-liquid extraction with ternary systems, absorption and stripping, design of multistage multicomponent distillation systems, diffusion and mass transfer models and their applications to continuous contacting separation processes.

  • course learning outcomes:

    At the end of the course, the participants will be able to;
    - Read mixture phase diagrams and construct mass balances from them using the lever rule, tie lines, etc.
    - Design tray-type distillation, absorption, and extraction columns for binary and multicomponent systems without the use of process simulators.
    - Design packed column absorbers using correlations and mass transfer coefficients.
    - Find number of trays required for liquid-liquid extraction from ternary phase diagrams.
    - Use of process simulator to design separation columns.
