Leerdoelen  Acquiring and being able to apply knowledge and insight regarding industrially applied separation processes (with a focus on extraction, absorption and distillation). At the end of this course, the students should be able to: 1. Describe equilibriumbased processes for the separation of chemical substances (and the principles of nonequilibrium processes). 2. Make reasonable calculations or estimates of flows, concentrations and quantities in separation processes of chemicals. 3. Make simple designs of separation equipment (e.g. number of trays, packing of towers, diameter of towers). 4. Along the way, the students should develop their critical thinking, and their analytical and problemsolving skills. 

Omschrijving  The course will introduce the students into the most relevant separation processes employed in the chemical industry. The course is based on the principles of mass and energy balances, phase equilibria and physical transport phenomena.

Entreevoorwaarden  The course Separation Processes is an integral unit that combines concepts from the disciplines of thermodynamics and physical transport phenomena and assumes some prior knowledge acquired from courses covering basic chemical engineering and thermodynamic principles (Single Phase Reactors and Technical Thermodynamics).  
Opmerkingen  The exams are evaluated based on the following criteria:  Correctness of theoretical analysis of the problem  Correctness of the approach used to solve the problem  Correctness of the numerical solution of the problem  Correctness of the units in the numerical values. "A number of points is assigned to each part of each question, and this information is provided on the exam sheets (the total of the points is 9). The final mark is calculated as: mark = obtained points + 1. The minimum mark to pass the exam is 6. Half marks are allowed (e.g. 6.5 or 7.5) apart from 5.5 which is rounded up to 6 (if the mark is 5.5) or to 5 (if the mark is < 5.5)."
