FPEN 602: Advanced Separation Processes


This course will provide students with the opportunity to study the theory and principles of separation process with particular reference to food process engineering. The course will also afford the students the opportunity to design separation processes for food processing.  Mechanical Separation processes: separations based on momentum transport – centrifuging, fluidization, filtration, fluid-solid conveying, particle separations not involving fluid mechanics – Electrical precipitation, magnetic separation.
