Unit operations 2

Objectives

At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts) :
- technology of industrial equipment used for mixing and separation
- dimensionless numbers to characterise physical phenomena and phenomena involved in mixing and separation operations
- design tools for unit operation of separation and mixing
The student will be able to:
- select the required unit operation and technology for separation or mixing
- select the contact mode
- write the mass balances
- design a multistage separation device (extraction, distillation, adsorption, absorption...)
- design a deep-bed filter
- design a membrane operation (MF, UF, NF)
- design a stirred tank and a static mixer

Needed prerequisite

Transport and reaction in fluid medium.
Thermodynamics.
Fluid properties and mass transfer.
Basic concepts for unit operations.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
