10 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: The production, handling and storage of solid particles is very important in many areas of industry, especially those involving chemicals, food and agriculture. The unit builds on the study of behaviour of single particles and applies it to engineering situations. The course covers the selection and design of a number of items of process equipment found in the chemical industry. Emphasis is placed on large-scale equipment design. This unit describes how systems from storage, transporting and manufacturing particles are analysed, designed and operated.
