Class Objectives
/Class Outline
By doing experiments with 8 various themes of unit operation learned in the chemical engineering field and performing exercise on chemical process design, students are expected to master the basic experimental operation and be able to link it with the theories of chemical engineering. Students will also be taught to write an analysis method and a report. The goal of the class is to master the following knowledge and ability.
・ Learn the measurement principle of flow rate and understand the Bernoulli's theory by measuring the flow rate using various flow meters such as Pitot tube and orifice.
・ Deepen the knowledge of rectification, such as stage efficiency , reflux ratio, operating line, and theoretical stages by performing continuous rectification experiments with total reflux of methanol+ water system.
・ Understand how to calculate heat-transfer coefficient from correlations of dimensionless numbers in the heat transfer process using a double pipe heat exchanger.
・ Learn the basics of kinetic analysis and reactor design through a solid catalyst reaction.
・ Understand the fixed-bed and fluidization phenomena in a solid-liquid system. Derive the flowrate at which the fixed be fluidizes by measuring the pressure drop.
・ Understand flow conditions (loading, flooding) and absorption operation (NTU, HTU, transfer capacity coefficient) in a packed column.
・ Learn the measurement principle and constant- pressure filtration and constant-rate filtration rate in a solid-liquid separation method. Understand the measurement principle of notation and centrifugal sedimentation type particle size distribution measuring apparatus of the particle size distribution of powder.
・ Understand the meaning of the control parameters and learn the design method of derivation method and control system of the transfer function of the process through liquid level control experiment.
・ Perform exercise to design a chemical process system consisting of reactors and separators and master the estimation of the mass balance and the cost of a product
(Some experimental subjects will not be conducted according to the situation.)

The evaluation criteria are as follows: "learning and understanding" and "ability and skills".

Lectures and interviews will be held in every other experiment theme. The detailed schedule is described in the guidance book that will be distributed in the first day.8 themes of experiment and 1 exercise as shown below will be conducted, and students are required to submit the experiment report. The submitted report is reviewed by each instructor. Each instructor is allowed to request for report re-submission and oral examination until students pass the minimum requirement.

Each theme will take about 8 hours to make the report.
