The purpose of this project was to refurbish the gas absorption column in the Moody Engineering Building for use as a supplement to some engineering classes. The group broke the project up into five subsections and each subsection was addressed based on different requirements. After completing the refurbishment, each subsystem was tested separately before the system was tested as a whole. After completing the final system test, the results were analyzed and grades given based on completion of goals for each subsystem. The final project was viewed as a success because the majority of work was completed and the system is operational such that it can be used in classes next year.
