Newly employed graduate process engineers need to be able to perform a wide range of fundamental process engineering calculations. The module will focus on aspects of process engineering design for the majority of equipment but will provide examples of detailed design and mechanical design in some cases. In all cases, industrial standards, best practice and safety will be at the heart of the design process to ensure the finalised designs will be reliable and robust, economically viable, safe and sustainable. The module will include topics such as pump selection, pressure relief calculations, line sizing, utilities, equipment specification including PFRs and stirred tanks in both batch and continuous operation (aseptic/sterile equipment design for regulation and control of chemical and biological reactions). Heterogeneous systems, in particular, the inter-phase mass transfer of nearly insoluble gases. Heat transfer through jackets, coils, electrical heaters and direct steam injection. Sterilisation of liquids and gases..The module also builds upon topics covered in EG-206 (Instrumentation, Measurement and Control) to further develop students understanding of process automation with specific emphasis on the quantitative aspects of control.
This module aims to give Environmental Engineering students experience in handling a complex and integrated process design. This task will require, and so reinforce, the material taught throughout the whole undergraduate course. The module provides training and working in a team environment on a major project and incorporates business skills and sustainability.
This module aims to give students experience in handling a complex and integrated engineering process design. This task will require, and so reinforce, the material taught throughout the undergraduate course and an additional amount of material from directed private study. The module provides transferable skills related to for working in a team environment on a major project.
