Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

- to apply theoretical background from process engineering course on to operation with experimental setups of pilot plant scale - experimental proof of basic principles of heat mass and momentum transport processes. - to evocate practical experience to students who treat experimental setup of pilot plant scale up to now only theoretically.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


Process engineering laboratory supply and extend education in process engineering and enable experimental application of theory on to pilot plant scale apparatuses. Simple principles of heat, mass and momentum transfer are treated as a seven individual experimental tasks (packed bed absorption column, bubble cup rectification column, multiphase reactor pachuca, rotational viscometer, fuel cells). Process engineering laboratory II enhancing skills and knowledge obtained in Process engineering laboratory I. Level of experimental exercises is adequate for graduate students.
