This module focuses on why separation is vital in chemical plants and highlights the various ways that separation processes can be classified. It also gives an overview of the standard fluid and solid separation methods used for chemical processes. The “stage” approach and the Kremser equation are introduced.
At the end of this module, students should be able to understand why separation is vital for chemical engineers. They should also be able to comprehend the underlying principles behind some standard separation operations used in the industry. Furthermore, they should be able to use numerical software to simulate and analyze the behavior of separation unit operations.
