Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

The course is adapted to chemical engineering students, and basic chemical engineering and transport phenomena knowledge will be assumed. Some topics treated in preceding courses will appear, but will not be treated as extensively in this course.

Aim

The aim of this advanced course is to deepen and extend knowledge and understanding of separation processes and their key role in eliminating the release of harmful substances. Some separation methods like distillation will be treated in greater detail than in undergraduate courses and some new separation methods like membrane operations and adsorption will be introduced. Multicomponent effects on equilibria and transport will be discussed.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)


  • understand basic separation mechanisms, in particular multi-component effects

  • use computer tools to design and evaluate a separation process

  • be able to choose appropriate separation method

Content

The areas treated in the course are:



  1. Introduction; classification; choice of separation method; energy requirements.

  2. Multicomponent transport and equilibria.

  3. Multicomponent distillation/absorption.

  4. Dynamic simulation.

  5. Adsorption.

  6. Membrane separation.

  7. Biological separation methods.

Organisation

The course contains lectures, exercises, design project and laboratory work.
