Gain a practical understanding of evaporators and adsorption columns used in chemical engineering unit operations and processes.

In this online course, you’ll discover how heat transfer occurs in evaporators, evaporator mass and energy balances, sizing calculations, and different types of evaporation equipment. You’ll identify energy-saving strategies such as multiple effect evaporation and vapor recompression. In addition, you’ll compare types of evaporators - the advantages, disadvantages and suitable applications of each.

Explore adsorption equilibrium, fixed bed operation and the mass transfer zone concept. You’ll delve into calculation of breakthrough capacity and efficiency of adsorbent usage, absorber design and scale-up considerations. This course also covers activated carbon, the most widely used adsorbent, including types of carbon, design of carbon-handling equipment, regeneration options and factors affecting performance.
