Chemical Engineering Laboratory 2
This course advances your learning and experience in experimental aspects of a number of areas of chemical engineering. Both fundamental aspects, such as kinetics and reaction engineering, process control, heat and mass transfer and fluid flow as well as more applied topics will be covered. The course will not only serve to reinforce fundamental principles of chemical engineering, but also to the application of the technology. The course emphasises and reinforces topics and principles introduced in lectures through experiential learning in the laboratory and with practical work in general. In successfully completing the course you will develop report-writing skills and the ability to critique experimental data and techniques.
Students must attend and pass the WH&S laboratory induction requirements before attending labs.

Semester 2 - 2018
On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
You will operate in small groups, but submit separate written reports, with each experiment taking one or two weeks to complete. The report formats will be specified during the course. The following experiments are indicative of those that may be covered in this course: • Packed and fluidised bed behaviour in a solid-liquid system • Mass transfer from falling liquid drops • An analysis of simple liquid mixing • A study of binary distillation in a packed column • Flotation kinetics of an ore • Reaction kinetics in a tubular flow reactor • Stirred tank power studies • Water softening and ion exchange
