Mass Transfer Operations
- Department of Process Engineering
Classis from Equipment for diffusion separation processes are giving a basic knowledge of processes and equipments where gas or liquid mixture is been separated due to principals of physical-chemical equilibriums or on the basis of mass transfer mechanisms. They are used for concentrating of products from dilute solutions or in turn for purification of diluted gasses or liquid solutions.
