Introduction:

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

Understanding the concept behind Gas-Gas, Liquid-Liquid and the Gas-Liquid mass transfer interaction will allow you to understand and model Distillation Columns, Flashes, 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..)

  • Distillation Theory

  • Application of Distillation in the Industry

  • Counter-Current Operation

  • Several equipment to Carry Gas-Liquid Operations

  • Bubble, Spray, Packed and Tray Column equipment

  • Flash Distillation & Flash Drums Design

  • Design & Operation of Tray Columns

  • Number of Ideal Stages: McCabe Thiele Method & Ponchon Savarit Method

  • Recycle

  • Condenser types: partial, total

  • Pressure drop due to trays

  • Design & Operation of Packed Columns

  • Pressure drop due to trays

  • Efficiency of Stages & Murphree’s Efficency

  • Batch Distillation, the Raleigh Equation

  • Software Simulation for Absorption/Stripping Operations (ASPEN PLUS/HYSYS)

Solved-Problem Approach:

All theory is 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 Binary Distillation in Flash, Continuous & Batch Processes. You will be able to continue with a Multi-Component Distillation, Reactive Distillation and Azeotropic Distillation as well as more Mass Transfer Unit Operation Courses and/or Separation Processes Course.

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.

Surprise!
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
