This module introduces the manufacture of synthetic fibers which involves pumping, filtration, fiber forming, and fiber treatment. Transient heat and mass transfer topics are emphasized. The module allows the reader to distinguish between convective and diffusive transport of both heat and mass. Other areas of contrast include positive displacement pumps versus centrifugal pumps and deep-bed filtration versus screen filtration.
