This unit of study teaches principles of particle technology and solid separation process required for chemical and biomolecular engineering. It runs after CHNG2801 (Fluid Mechanics), CHNG2803 (Heat and Mass Transfer) and CHNG2806 (Separation Processes) to provide students with the tools and know-how to tackle unit operation tasks related to chemical engineering. It also includes project-based study components including a research project on fluidisation of solid particles, a dyer design project and a lab session on chromatograph. The integrated course structure helps students to develop a physical understanding of particle technology and solid separation process and gain the ability to solve problems of engineering significance.
Lectures, Laboratories, Project Work - in class
Through semester assessment (40%) and Final Exam (60%)
