Heat Transfer Equipment and Drying – Module 3

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

Date: 12 May - 12 May 2021

Location: Online Event

Tutors: Mr Robert Peeling

This ONLINE short course is split into 3 modules and part of the well-received “Chemical Engineering: What Scientists and Other Disciplines Need to Know” course. You can have the choice to attend one, two or all three modules.  This module is set to take place on May 12th at 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST (British Summer Time).  If you are also interested in the full Introduction to Chemical Engineering Science, click here for more details.

These modules have been developed, and are 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.

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, 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 1 – Fluid Transfer and Liquid Mixing | Monday, May 10th – 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST

Module 2 – Mass Transfer Applications | Tuesday,  May 11th – 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST

Introduction to Chemical Engineering Virtual Course | April 26-29th – 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST

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.

Heat transfer utilities and equipment

  • Heat transfer calculations
  • Types of heat transfer equipment
  • Heat transfer in batch vessels
  • Evaporation
  • Joule-Thomson effect


  • Humidity and the drying process
  • Application to solvents
  • Dryer design & equipment


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
  • E Reader version of the manual

Please note recordings of any sessions will not be shared.
