Separation Processes Overview
Mass Transfer Operations


In this mini-course we will cover the most basic processes involved in Mass Transfer Operations. This is an overview of what type of processes, methods and units are used in the industry. This is mostly an introductory course which will allow you to learn, understand and know the approach towards separation processes involving mass transfer phenomena.

It is an excellent course before any Mass Transfer Process or Unit Operation Course such as Distillations, Extractions, Lexiviation, Membranes, Absorption, etc…

This course is extremely recommended if you will continue with the following:

  • Flash Distillation, Simple Distillation, Batch Distillation

  • Gas Absorption, Desorption & Stripping

  • Binary Distillation, Fractional Distillation

  • Scrubbers, Gas Treating

  • Sprayers / Spray Towers

  • Bubble Columns / Sparged Vessels

  • Agitation Vessels

  • Packed Towers, Tray Towers

  • Membranes

  • Liquid Extraction

  • Dryers / Humidifiers

  • Adsorbers

  • Evaporators/Sublimators

  • Crystallizers

  • Centrifugations

  • And many other Separation Technology!

Theory-Based Course

This is a very theoretical course, some calculations and exercises are present, but overall, expect mostly theoretical concepts.

At the end of the course:

You will be able to understand the mass transfer operations concepts. You will be able to identify Mass Transfer Unit Operations. You will be also able to ensure the type of method of separation technology used.

You will be able to apply this theory in further Unit Operations.

About your instructor:

I majored in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Industrial Engineering back in 2012.

I worked as a Process Design/Operation Engineer in INEOS Koln, mostly on the petrochemical area relating to naphtha treating. There I designed and modeled several processes relating separation of isopentane/pentane mixtures, catalytic reactors and separation processes such as distillation columns, flash separation devices and transportation of tank-trucks of product.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
