Thermal insulation is necessary, Importance

Process equipments such as a reaction vessel, reboiler, distillation column, evaporator, etc. Or a steam pipe will lose heat to the atmosphere by conduction, convection and radiation. In such cases, the conservation of heat that …

Fourier's law of heat conduction

Fourier's law: The physical law governing the transfer of heat through a uniform material (whenever temperature difference exists) by a conduction mode was given by the French scientist: Joseph Fourier.  Fourier law states t…

Heat transfer, Conduction, Convection, Radiation

Heat transfer deals with the study of rates at which the exchange of heat takes place between a hot source and a cold receiver. In process industries, there are many operations that involve the transfer of energy in the form of …

Unit operations of chemical engineering

The concept of unit operations was introduced by A. D. Little in 1905. The operations carried out in the process industries involving a physical change in the system under consideration are regarded as unit operations.  Features…
