The course covers the fundamentals of unit operations involving particulate solids (characterisation, agglomeration, comminution, dissolution, powder flow, fluid-solid separation), as well as rate-based separation processes, namely adsorption and crystallization. The concept of population balances is introduced.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Hladíková Jana (15.01.2018)

After completing the course, the student will be able to:

  • Perform basic design and analytical calculations related to the covered unit operations
  • Make rational selection of process alternatives and quantify the influence of material properties and process parameters on the process performance
  • Formulate and apply population balances to describe chemical engineering phenomena with a distribution of properties
