of small-scale/micro-scale experiments used for the education of undergraduate
students in chemical engineering courses have been developed. Based on the
“small-scale/micro-scale” concept, the experiments were developed to provide an
intuitive understanding of chemical processes, both by increasing the
visibility of these chemical processes and by making the apparatus compact
(desktop size). Nine experiments were developed that are relevant to the fields
of thermal engineering, fluid engineering, unit operations, and reaction
engineering. These experiments were introduced during the educational
experiment course for undergraduates in the chemical engineering program.
