Chemical Engineering Department
Heat and Mass Transfer Laboratory
Heat and mass transfer are the areas of engineering that address how quickly energy or material substances move from one place to another. Understanding these phenomena is essential to designing and analyzing heating and cooling operations, and most separation processes.
The Heat and Mass Transfer Laboratory offers experiments for fluidized-bed heat transfer, boiling-film heat transfer, countercurrent heat exchange, thermal conductivity, home heating system design, and radiation. Mass transfer experiments include membrane separations and liquid-liquid extraction.
