3. Course contents *

Advanced Separation Technology: Theory

Chemical production plants consist of a sequence of unit operations (e.g. separation operations). A detailled study of the most used unit operations concerning purification of chemicals, of which distillation and extraction are some examples, are the main focus of this course. The study of each operation includes, in addition to indicating the most common equipment types, a detailed discussion of the basic theory and the calculation and design methods for this more complex equipment. The course is complemented with exercises.

Advanced Separation Technology: Simulations

The calculations mentioned above are often rather complex or lengthy, which leads to the use of simulation techniques. Those techniques, applied on specific problems of the separation technology, are therefore included in the course. Such simulations are carried out with a worldwide known and industrially applied simulation package, i.e. Aspen Plus.
