Course frequency: Annually
First time: 2011H
Course contents:
The focus in the course will be dimensjoning of different industrial processes. Lectures will be given in distillation, gas absorption and stripping, drying, mechanical/physical separation methods, liquid extraction of solid material and membrane filtration. Calculations,dimensioning and energy balances will be an important part of the course. The industrial processes are chosen because they are relevant in the oil industry, chemical industry, waste water treatment and food industry.
Learning outcome:
The student shall be able to calculate the physical dimensjons of industrial processes, in addition to being able to carry out mass and energy balances.
Learning activities:
The course is based on a combination of lectures, calculations and self-study.
Teaching support:
The teacher is available for extra support and advice during office hours, and can also be reached by telephone and e-mail.
