The course is aimed at familiarizing students with selected types of apparatus and equipment used in the chemical and related industries. It is a practically oriented course dealing with the basic design, operation and maintenance of apparatus and equipment. Students will be presented with principle schemes and arrangements of apparatus and equipment, always supplemented with specific examples of their design in the form of drawings and technical documentation, including examples from industrial installations. The course builds on the theoretical foundations acquired in the course Chemical Engineering.
