Course detail

Techniques of Decreasing Industrial Harmful Substances

FSI-QSSAcad. year: 2018/2019

The course familiarises students with techniques of decreasing industrial harmful substances. It deals with the analysis of causes and consequences of the pollutant production connected with the production technologies and operation of handling equipments, building machines and machines for building materials production. Also discussed is the creation of ecological qualitative parameters of structure and building materials, handling and building machines, evaluation of dustiness, noise, vibrations, waste heat and ionized radiation sources. The course focuses also on measuring and separation techniques, as well as on constructional possibilities of dust and chemical harmful substances hazards decreasing at the technologies designing.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Understanding of selected physical and chemical principles of decreasing industrial harmful substances, principles of separators, filters, closed technological processes.

Prerequisites

Successful completion of the course is conditional on the knowledge of technical mechanics, physics, higher mathematics, machine parts and their mechanisms, physics of materials and principles of electrical engineering.
