This course is an introduction to separation processes based on mass transfer principles and equilibrium staging. Separation processes including distillation, absorption, liquid-liquid extraction, membrane/filtration, adsorption and settling base separations are introduced and examined. Unifying fundamental relations and concepts are emphasized along with practical applications for industrial processes.
