Course detail

FCH-DC_CHIAAcad. year: 2019/2020

Extension of theoretical foundations of processes and apparatuses of chemical and biochemical technologies focused especially on separation processes, supplemented by computational procedures and demonstrations of practical examples of technologies discussed in today's industrial practice.
Calculation and implementation of filtration and ultrafiltration processes, sedimentation in centrifugal systems, fluidization combined with parallel processes of surface treatment of particulate material, absorption and chemisorption, homogenization in continuous conditions, solid phase extraction, advanced characterization of particulate systems, classification, pneumatic transport and fine particulate matter separation , modification of bulk properties, proposals of current stock management.

Learning outcomes of the course unit


Students will acquire advanced knowledge of selected Unit Operations in the area of Mass Transfer in Absorption, Chemisorption and Extraction, Reaction Technology, Particular Systems, Solid Phase Processing and Separation Processes, which are currently used in designing and assessing individual process nodes in chemical and other practice productions in laboratory scale and in industrial practice as well. The course does not support the extension of knowledge in the given field only, but also leads the students to make the right technological decisions in the specific technological situations that will be assigned to the students. Part of the course is a separate design solution of technological nodes, which students must elaborate independently.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught in the form of individual consultations, combining the assignments and discussions of individual topics of the discussed technologies. In this way, the development of technological strategy, which the student will choose in solving their specific individual technological assignment, will also be monitored.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

To pass the exam, it is necessary to actively participate in the course and solve a given technological strategy, which the student must prepare in writing in the required quality in the required form.

Language of instruction

Czech

Work placements

One or more short-term internships at quality workplaces (university, industrial development e.g.) dealing with issues related to the dissertation topic.
