Flash 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.
Understanding the concept behind Flash Distillation, the vapor-liquid equilibrium and all other mass transfer interaction will allow you to understand and model Flash Drums and Flashing Systems. Most of them can be used to "theoretically" model other unit operations such as: Distillation Columns, Batch Distillator, Tray Columns and Packed column, etc...
We will cover:
REVIEW: Of Mass Transfer Basics (Equilibrium VLE Diagrams, Volatility, Raoult's Law, Azeotropes, etc..)
Flash Distillation Theory - Concepts and Principles
Application of Distillation in the Industry
Equipment for Flashing Systems such as Flash Drums
Design & Operation of Flash Drums
Material and Energy Balances for flash systems
Adiabatic and Isothermal Operation
Animations and Software Simulation for Flash 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.

Hi there, I'm Emmanuel Ortega, aka Chemical Engineering Guy...
I've been in the Chemical Industry for about 3 years. I love applying all my knowledge learned in University to the Daily Engineering Life. From working in a Petrochemical Plant as a Process Plant Designer to working with textile material from Polyester Yarns; I could teach you a lot of how it is important to learn the Engineering subjects!
- Chemical Process Design
- Plant Design
- Heat Transfer Operations and Equipment Design
- Industrial Polyester Yarn
- Online Tutoring
Right now I'm preparing online material for Engineers all over the world. I have a dream in which online education will break all barriers and let Engineers all over the world learn easier and faster! Please join me in my quest!
The Courses I design are entirely dynamic. You will see theory and then apply it ASAP to a real life problem! I even use the books you are using right now in your engineering courses...
Hope to see you in any of the Courses I'm offering!
