John Frank Pietranski, P.E., Ph.D.
This course provides a step-by-step development for the design of two types of liquid-in-gas separation devices: the horizontal and vertical gravity separators. These two types of process vessels are utilized throughout the chemical process industry to remove liquids from vapor streams.
Gases and liquids are intentionally contacted in several process unit operations: absorption, cooling, mixing, and distillation. While separation of the liquid from the gas stream can and will occur naturally, the rate that this takes place is usually uneconomical or unacceptable.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
