SummaryThis course provides, via small/pilot-scale practical laboratory experimentation or online laboratory experimentation videos, the practical application of theoretical principles and concepts learnt in earlier and concurrent chemical engineering courses . The laboratory covers most aspects of chemical engineering unit operation processes including heat and mass transfer (HMT), volumetric reactors (R), bed reactors (B) and separation (S).
Course description This is a 100% Coursework Course where the students undertake 5 Practical or Online Laboratory Experiences ensuring a good balance between the different available experiments related to chemical engineering units operations, i.e. 1 HMT, 1 HT, 1 R, 1 B and 1 S. The list of current experiments is found below:
- Two-phase Heat Transfer (HMT1)
- Single Tube Condenser (HMT2)
- Thermoelectric Heat Pump (HMT3)
- Drying (HT4)
- B├╝chi Spray Drier (HT5)
- Double Pipe Heat Exchanger (HT6)
- Absorption in Packed Bed (B1)
- Fluidised/Collapsing Bed (B2)
- Packed Bed Hydraulics (B3)
- Fluidised Bed (B4)
- Residence Time Distribution (R1)
- Measurement of Surface Area (R2)
- Catalytic Hydrogen Production (R3)
- Packed Bed Catalytic Reactor (R4)
- Filtration 1 (S1)
- Filtration 2 (S2)
- Membrane Desalination (S3)

Learning Outcomes
On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  1. Gain the relevant skills and practice for future laboratory experimentation at small/pilot scale with emphasis on health and safety, safe start-up, operation and shut-down.
  2. Plan and execute specific laboratory experimentation to test particular relationships or investigate explicit phenomena related to concurrent chemical engineering courses and processes.
  3. Apply, assimilate and secure concepts taught theoretically on other different chemical engineering courses.
  4. Appropriately record, analyse, and plot data including error analysis to support the relationship/process being tested.
  5. Effectively communicate in a concise, complete and properly referenced scientific manner the complete experimental practice and its analysis via written reports, oral and poster presentations.
