Description

Introduction:

Batch Distillation is one of the most important Mass Transfer Operations used extensively in the Chemical industry.

It is also one of the most important processes to learn in Mass Transfer / Separation Process Technologies as it is a fundamental unit operation.

Batch distillation is still one of the processes used in order to purify important species.


We will cover:

  • REVIEW: Of Mass Transfer Basics (Equilibrium VLE Diagrams, Volatility, Raoult's Law, Azeotropes, etc..)

  • Batch Distillation Theory - Concepts and Principles

  • Material and Energy Balances for Batch Systems

  • Application of Distillation in the Industry

  • Equipment for Batch Systems such as Batch Distillators

  • Design & Operation of Batch Distillation Systems

  • Adiabatic and Isothermal Operation

  • Time relationships in Batch Systems

  • Animations and Software Simulation for Batch Distillation Systems (ASPEN PLUS/HYSYS)

Theory + Solved Problem Approach:

All theory is taught and backed with exercises, solved problems, and proposed problems for homework/individual study.


At the end of the course:

You will be able to understand mass transfer mechanism and processes behind Flash Distillation.

You will be able to continue with Batch Distillation, Fractional Distillation, Continuous Distillation and further courses such as Multi-Component Distillation, Reactive Distillation and Azeotropic Distillation.


About your instructor:

I majored in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Industrial Engineering back in 2012.

I worked as a Process Design/Operation Engineer in INEOS Koln, mostly on the petrochemical area relating to naphtha treating.

There I designed and modeled several processes relating separation of isopentane/pentane mixtures, catalytic reactors and separation processes such as distillation columns, flash separation devices and transportation of tank-trucks of product.
