Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the various components and be able to assemble systems from them and design them in accordance with relevant regulations.
Students will understand, be able to explain and roughly calculate selected basic operations in process engineering and its apparatuses, as well as to perform simple modelling on the basis of physical relationships.

Module content:
Plant components and their operating behavior, for example:
        (Pressure stages, flange systems, material, cleanability/cleaning systems (CIP/molch),    
        corrosion behavior, pipe forces, processing methods, calculation of pressure loss)
    Pipe connection systems
    Static and dynamic pipe sealing systems, apparatus, pumps and valves
    Pump design, and various special designs (hermetically sealed motors, magnetic coupling)
    Fields of application and valve design
    Heat exchangers
Design guidelines, legal requirements and calculation methods
for planning process plants, e.g:  
    Pressure Equipment Directive
    Surge pressure calculations
    Machinery Directive
    Risk assessment
    Flow diagrams for process engineering plants
Selected basic operations,
their principles and apparatuses, for e.g:
