FPEN 202: Basic Food Process Engineering Calculations II



Objectives: To equip students with the skills needed to analyse and understand complex process engineering problems.

Description: The course introduces students to complex material and energy balances and their applications in basic concepts such as Bernoulli’s equation, as well as balances involving chemical reaction, combustion, recycle and purge. Students are familiarized with process modelling and simulation, using computers in flow sheeting. Key concepts involving Calculation of Separations in Contact-Equilibrium Processes are discussed. Similarly, students are introduced to calculations involving Thermal Death Times and associated concepts such as F values, equivalent killing power at other temperatures, z value, sterilization integration.
