COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

Students will be practically acquainted with functional dependence of process variables during the performance of individual experiment. They will acquire the sense of selection of the optimal process operating conditions. To educate students how to determine unknown process variables applying the theoretical expressions and values of process variables measured during the experiments.

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

Enrolled in or passed the course Unit Operations

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

After finishing the laboratory exercises, student is expected to know:
- explain the purpose and the aim of each of experiment (exercise) conducted,
- describe the elementary parts of apparatus used during individual experiments,
- bring up the variable needed to be measured in order to determine specific (demanded) process variables or parameters,
- explain the functional dependence of measured process variables and their influence on the final result of the experiments,
- explain the main resistance and driving force for each of experiment conducted.

Course content broken down in detail by weekly class schedule (syllabus)

Exercise 1: Classification of the particulate solids.
Exercise 2: Mixing - power consumption determination.
Exercise 3: Filtration - determination of filtration coefficient and filtration cake resistance.
Exercise 4: Heat exchanger - determination of partial and overall heat transfer coefficient.
Exercise 5: Gas absorption- determination of pressure drop and limiting flow rates.
Exercise 6: Drying rate determination.
Exercise 7: Distillation - determination of the number of theoretical plates.

Grading and evaluating student work in class and at the final exam

After each exercise, student is obligated to write a report. It consists of calculations based on an application of theoretical expressions and the values of process variables measured during the experiments. Beside calculation, student needs to draw the diagrams of process variable dependence, specific for individual operation. Upon completion of all exercises, a final (written) test will be held. Minimum score is 55%. Final grade from the exercise consists of grade from the practical work, report and final test.
