EB 3560 - Unit Ops-Prod Scale Bioseparations

2 lecture hours 4 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This course applies the principles of phase equilibrium, transport processes and chemical kinetics to the design and characterization of batch and continuous separation processes. Graphical and rigorous numerical techniques are used in the design and scale-up of associated process equipment. The general procedures applicable to various processes are emphasized. Sample problems are drawn from the chemical, food and biochemical processing industries. Laboratory topics include techniques related to common production scale operations, which include filtration, flocculation, extraction, centrifugation and chromatography (prereq: CH 201 , EB 2910 , EB 3510 , EB 3620 )
