Fluid Transfer and Liquid Mixing Short Course

A virtual course delivered by Britest Ltd in conjunction with Scientific Update

Date: 26 June - 26 June 2023

Location: Online Platform

Tutors: Mr Robert Peeling

This VIRTUAL short course has been developed, and is presented, by chemical engineers and chemists who specialise in facilitating knowledge transfer and understanding between different scientific and engineering disciplines working at the R&D-manufacturing interface. They do not dwell on the derivation of mathematical formulae or equations used in chemical engineering design, but instead focuses on what other disciplines need to know about the information and data that chemical engineers require for design, scale-up and process troubleshooting.  This will be delivered on the following date via an online platform:

Monday June 26th – 2.00pm – 5.00pm UK Time. 

You may also be interested in the an Introduction to Chemical Engineering Science, click here for more details.   or some additional modules which are listed below:

Chemical engineering without mathematics is impossible, but only relevant mathematics is presented at a level that should not trouble anyone with a numerate scientific degree.   Other disciplines do not need to know how to design plants or equipment and the modules do not attempt to teach this. They focus on understanding chemical engineering principles to promote clear communication between disciplines, facilitating information and knowledge transfer.

If you are interested in the other two modules of this series, please click on the dates below, along with the Introduction to Chemical Engineering.  Please note there is a special discount if you attend the full course and all three modules.

Module Outline

Module Outline

Based on the well-received face-to-face Chemical Engineering course, these modules have been structured to provide flexibility in a virtual training environment.  Interactivity is retained by enabling participants to split out into virtual break-out rooms to work on examples that help cement understanding of the material presented. Each module duration will be 3 hours.

Module 1: Fluid Transfer and Liquid Mixing

Fluid transfer systems

  • Reynolds number
  • Pressure drop in pipes
  • Types of pump and pump selection

Liquid mixing

  • Applications of mixing
  • Types of agitators
  • Mixing regimes and their effects on process
  • Solid-liquid and gas-liquid mixing

Module Objectives

  • Chemists, biologists and engineers regularly interact and collaborate in process R&D projects. For effective team working they should each understand the needs and objectives of the other disciplines.
  • These modules give scientists and other engineering disciplines an introduction to some key aspects of the application of chemical engineering science to…
    • 1) Fluid transfer and liquid mixing
    • 2) Mass transfer applications
    • 3) Heat transfer equipment and Drying
  • The objective is to enable delegates to be aware of the impact of chemical engineering principles on successful scale-up and process problem solving.  The principle aim is that delegates will be able to discuss chemical engineering issues affecting their processes and relate them to their own areas of expertise.

What's Included

The course fee includes:

  • one module
  • course certificate at the end
  • PDF’s of the slides sent in advance of the course

Please note recordings of any sessions will not be shared.

Additional Modules to Complement this course

To complement this course, Britest are delighted to offer three additional modules that will further your knowledge in Chemical Engineering.   You will be able to select these courses during your booking process, each module is priced at £299.00 each, please note if you select all three modules you will receive one FREE.   This discount will be applied upon registration and check out.

Testimonials

2018 Delegate

Course topic was very interesting and definitely made me reconsider how to think or consider things from now on. Also will help me to understand my colleagues and their views better.

2018 Delegate

Very good course, covering important fundamentals of chem engineering and relates them to practical applications useful as introduction to subject, as well as a refresher.
