The course provides basic knowledge on main apparatuses of process industry, characterized by mass and heat transfer, normally employed either in the production processes or for utilities. Therefore, as a specific feature, the course allows students to gain the technological knowledge for the design of each single item and balance of plant in the whole complex according to the required transformation of raw materials into final products.

Students will gain the theoretical basis to design multiphase apparatuses, as a single item and in the whole plant, included mass and heat transfer balances, and efficiencies. Practical classes with exercises will allow students to gain design criteria.

Students must possess basic information of mathematics, physics, physical thermodynamics, unit operations (momentum, mass and energy transfer), materials properties, process plants control, environment and process risks assessment. Moreover, they have to know characteristics and performance of pumps, compressors, and electrical motors.

The developed topics are as follows: - distillation columns; absorption columns; cooling towers - liquid-liquid and solid-liquid extractors - adsorption beds; ionic exchangers - fluidized beds; - air conditioning and cooling systems; - cogeneration of heat and power; - valves; - concept of profitability of an industrial process.

During theoretical lessons, each topic will be explained using schemes and graphics, to better understand the working principles and the thermodynamics, heat and mass balances. During practical classes, students will learn the procedures for the "process design" of items and plants shown and explained during the lectures. Students can work in team assisted by the teacher.

The teacher will provide pdf copies of the slides used during the lessons, covering all the topics. During practical classes, the teacher will provide the necessary tables and schemes useful for the calculations to design multiphase apparatuses. Suggested books (not compulsory, only for consultancy): D.W. Green, R.H. Perry, “Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Book”, McGraw-Hill W.L. McCabe, J.C. Smith, P. Harriott, “ Unit Operation of Chemical Engineering”, McGraw-Hill O. Levenspiel, “Chemical Reaction Engineering”, Wiley A.S. Foust, L.A. Wenzel, C.W. Clump, L. Maus, L.B. Anderson, "Principles of Unit Operation," Wiley V.G. Pangarkar “Design of multiphase Reactors”, Wiley
