SYNOPSIS

This subject introduces the students to one of the fundamental knowledge that the students must
acquire in mass transfer and mass transfer operations. The topics covered include the concepts of
mass transfer and equipment design for gas absorption, adsorption and drying.

OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this module, students should be able to:
1. Explain the concept of diffusional, convective and interphase mass transfer.
2. Describe various types of unit operations based on mass transfer and fluid interactions principles.
3. Apply chemical engineering calculations involving design principles to mass transfer in various unit
operations.
