UNIT OPERATIONS IV: MASS TRANSFER

We learned that heat is transferred if there is a temperature difference in a medium. Similarly, if there is a difference in the concentration of any chemical species in a mixture, mass transfer must occur. Mass transfer is mass in transit as a result of a difference in concentrations of a species in a mixture.[…]

UNIT OPERATIONS III: HEAT TRANSFER

Heat transfer (or heat) is energy in transit due to a temperature difference. Whenever a temperature difference exists in a medium or between media, heat transfer will occur. This is the case in the unitary operations of this classification in the industries as a whole. Shall we delve into them? The study of unitary operations[…]

UNIT OPERATIONS I: INTRODUCTION TO UNIT OPERATIONS

In an industry, starting from the raw material until reaching the final product, a series of processes must occur, some of them chemical and others of a physical nature. Thus each of the sequential steps in an industrial production line is known as a “unit operation”. In this episode, we will learn a little more[…]
