C&PE 611. Design of Unit Operations. 3 Hours.
Application of chemical engineering principles to design pumps, heat exchangers, and separation equipment. Staged separation processes including distillation, extraction and absorption, membrane separations, and modes of operation will be considered. Sizing of equipment, energy consumption and materials of construction will also be addressed. Prerequisite: CPE 211; CPE 511; CPE 512; CPE 521 or CPE 525; CPE 523 or CPE 525; CPE 524; or consent of department. The Department has a GPA requirement for progression in the program. Details can be found in the catalog. LEC.
Chemical engineering has grown out of a combination of chemistry and engineering associated with industrial processes. Today, it possesses a body of knowledge used in the synthesis, design testing, scale-up, operation, control, and optimization of processes that change the physical state or composition of materials. Chemical engineers have played central roles in the industrial development of materials that have had major social influence, such as the production of fuels and lubricants, fertilizer, synthetic fibers, and plastics. They will be centrally involved in reducing the polluting effects of certain byproducts and cleaning up unwanted residues from previous processes.
