Unit operations of particulate matter. About 75% of chemical manufacturing methods involve small solid particles at some duration.

Proper design and handling of these fine particles usually make the difference between the success and failure of the product. Many merchandises such as catalysts, pigments, fertilizers, cement, ceramics, and pharmaceuticals are currently manufactured in particulate information.

Unit Operations of Particulate Matter deal with the Science and Technology of solid material, which is a multidisciplinary field including Materials Science, Environmental, Biomedical, Aerospace, Agricultural, Chemistry, Microbiology and Cell Science, Pharmacy and Medicine. The primary objectives of this course are to• identify the important physical mechanisms occurring in processes involving particles• formulate and solve mathematical descriptions of such processes• apply this knowledge to the design of particulate systems such as Sedimentation tank, Filtration unit, Fluidization unit, Flotation cell, etc.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: It is a core course for Undergraduate students. However, this course will also be helpful for anyone of any professional level, preferably holding a college degree or with substantial industrial experience, working in the production, handling, processing, modification, and transportation of particulate matter
