Unit Operations in Chemical Engineering
Unit Operations are the separation techniques based on the differences between chemical properties, or physical properties like size, shape, mass, density and chemical affinity, between the constituents of a mixture, and are often differentiated according to the specific differences they use to achieve.Chemical engineering unit operations form the main principles of all kinds of chemical industries and are the foundation of designs of chemical plants, factories, and equipment used. A pure unit operation is a physical transport process, while a mixed chemical/physical process requires modeling both the physical transport such as diffusion and the chemical reaction. This is usually necessary for designing catalytic reactions.
