Analysis and design of chemical separation processes involving phase equilibria and mass transfer. Topics include: continuous and batch processing; counter-current and co-current flow patterns; tray columns and packed columns for distillation, gas absorption/stripping, and liquid-liquid extraction; batch separation by selective adsorption on solids; continuous separation by selective permeation through membranes; and choosing among separation options.

When Offered Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: CHEME 3130 and CHEME 3240.

Outcomes
  • Combine mass balances, energy balances, thermodynamic equilibrium constraints, and constitutive models for convective mass transfer to develop mathematical models for the performance of various separation systems. (a,d,e,i,k)
  • Optimize designs of separation systems to achieve targets for product purity. (a,c,d,e,i,k)
  • Acquire experience using modern computer software for designing separation processes. (a,c,d,e,j,k)
  • Develop and apply criteria for selecting among available separation technologies. (c,d,k)
