1.9 Chapter Summary

In this chapter, we have introduced the concepts of transport processes, unit operations, and separation processes, which form the basis for this textbook. Many examples of different unit operations and separations processes from a range of chemical, biological, and process industries were provided.

Important elements necessary to solve transport and separation processes were discussed. First, an overview of the different types of units and parameters, such as temperature, pressure, mass, and composition was provided. Then, material and energy balances were introduced by using the laws of conservation and energy. Examples were shown that included recycle streams, chemical reactions, latent heat, and heat of reaction. Finally, the principles of numerical introduction were described as a way to solve mathematical functions that are too complex to solve analytically.
