EB 3830 - Heat Transfer Equipment in Process Engineering

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This elective course introduces the most common heat transfer equipment utilized in bio and chemical industries. The working principles and applications of heat exchangers, heat transfer process in agitated vessels, evaporators, and dryers will be covered briefly. The details of design considering the size, pressure drop, and internal configuration, scale up and operation of the equipment will be studied. Throughout the course, the examples will be drawn from bio and chemical process applications. (prereq: EB 3620  or equivalent course approved by the instructor)
