EB 3561 - Unit Operations-Production Scale Bioseparations

4 lecture hours 0 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This course applies the principles of transport phenomena and thermodynamics to the design and characterization of batch and continuous separation processes. Graphical and numerical techniques are used in the design and scale-up of associated process equipment. The general processes involved in the working of various unit processes are studied. Problems are drawn from the bio-processing industries and applications. (prereq: CH 201 , EB 2910 , EB 3510 , EB 3620 )
