Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to perform 

basic mechanical-process engineering operations (particle characterization, grinding, solid mixing, stirring, coarsening of grain and separation techniques) and
basic chemical-process engineering elements (chemical reactor, species balance, heat balance, chemical concersion, reaction kinetics, process optimization) and
basic thermal-process engineering operations (...)
describe, compare and apply to problems.

Subject of course

The following basics of mechanical process engineering are presented: Identification of disperse systems, particle size distribution, sampling methods, particle size determination (analytical sieving, Andreasen pipette ...), properties of piles (permeability ...), identification of the state of the mixture, theoretical principles of separation operations, mechanical systematics -Process engineering basic operations, characteristic values, areas of application and descriptions of the most important apparatus and machines used for the following mechanical-process engineering basic operations: comminution, mixing of solids, stirring, grain enlargement (agglomeration, pressing, pelletizing), separation processes: solid-solid (sorting, classifying, flotation ), Solid-liquid (sedimentation, centrifugation, filtration).

The following principles of chemical process engineering are presented: Chemical reactors, perfectly stirred reactor, plug flow reactor, residence time distribution, chemical reaction kinetics, chemical conversion, species balance, heat balance.

The following basics of thermal process engineering are presented: unit operation concept in chemical engineering, systematics in thermal process engineering, thermodynamic and kinetic fundamentals in thermal process engineering (vapour-liquid equilibria, liquid-liquid equilibria, sorption equilibria, mass transfer to and across phase boundaries, boundary layer theories), important thermal separation processes (distillation / rectification, absorption, adsorption, extraction, crystallisation, membran separation processes) and basic design concepts (McCabe-Thiele method, other separation stage concepts), industrial equipment for thermal separations and phase contact (separation columns, column internals, characteristics and design strategies).

Teaching methods

Derivation of important process engineering basic equations for the design of apparatus; Presentation of the functionality of mechanical, chemical and thermal process engineering apparatus and their characteristics by means of graphical representations; Case studies are used to discuss which system technology can be used in a problem-oriented manner.
