Chemical Laboratories

Fluid Mechanics laboratory provides a “hands on” environment that is crucial for developing students understanding of theoretical concepts. Fluid mechanics laboratory is of fluids and their flows are studied and observed. Pressure variations of compressible fluids when they allowed flowing through various pipes and flow equipment and theoretical demonstration of different laws of fluid mechanics are studied. The experimental facilities provided in lab include: Venturimeter, Orifice meter, Bernoullis theorem, Weirs & Notches, frictional losses in pipe, Reynolds Apparatus, Centrifugal pump, coefficient of discharge in V-notch, Pressure drop in fluidized bed reactor and packed bed reactor, Calibration of Rotameter, friction losses in valves and fittings, viscosity determination using Redwood viscometer, etc What type of pump do you use in your house to fill water from the bore well? What is a turbine? How does a valve operate? To know these answers, please step into the fluid mechanics lab. Housing the sophisticated equipments, this laboratory completely satisfies the queries of the somophore related to the fluid mechanics.

The Mechanical Operations lab is one of the important laboratories in Chemical Engineering discipline. The Lab mainly includes the study of solid mechanics, Properties of  particulate solid materials, powder processing, transportation and storage of solids.

The lab fully equipped with different kinds of equipments which are used in industries for Size reduction, Crushing, Grinding, Filtration and etc. The equipment available in the lab are Jaw crusher, Roll mill, Ball mill, Hammer mill, Verification of stokes law, Batch sedimentation, Beaker Decantation,  Plate and frame filter press, equipment to study properties of powders and Blain apparatus.

The students are performed in this lab and they may get the complete knowledge on different kind of mechanical operations, different properties of powders, powder processing, transportation and storage of solids. The students by their gained knowledge in the lab, they can able to design of different equipments which are useful to Pharmaceutical, Chemical and many other industries and also they can solve the problems faced by the industries.

Conduction, convection and radiation are the three modes of transfer of heat from one body to another. But have you witnessed how these take place? Welcome to the heat transfer lab. Equipped with the sophisticated world class heat transfer equipments like Shell & tube heat exchanger, Dropwise & filmwise condensers, extended surface heat exchangers, Evaporators. This laboratory provides the novel requirement that serves the upcoming engineer up to extreme cognizance. So the next time when you see a motorcycle engine, dont be enigmatic about its shape & design.

 The purpose of this lab is to introduce the undergraduate students with the most important separation equipments in the process industry, and provide a hands-on training of the proper operation of these units. This helps in not only understanding the theoretical fundamentals of the subject but also helps to visualize its real-world applications in the process industry.These experiments help the students to understand different separation processes in detailed.  The experiments covered in this lab also pave way for inculcating certain innovative skills in the students making them to use these experimental setups as starting point to take up higher level experimental studies in Mass Transfer.

The chemical reaction engineering lab is equipped with the state-of-the-art equipments, automated like the Adiabatic and isothermal plug flow reactors (PFRs), Isothermal CSTR, Packed Bed reactors and the facilities of Trickle bed reactor in order to make the students visualize the immediate real time industrial conditions and learn about the reaction techniques. The purpose of this lab is to introduce the undergraduate students with the most important reactor types in the process industry, and provide a hands-on training of the proper operation of these units. This helps in not only understanding the theoretical fundamentals of the subject but also helps to visualize its real-world applications in the process industry. These experiments help the students to understand reaction kinetics and reactor residence time distribution in detail.  The experiments covered in this lab also pave way for inculcating certain innovative skills in the students making them to use these experimental setups as starting point to take up higher level experimental studies in Chemical reaction engineering.

A specific reaction process cannot be successful to yield the required product or the anticipated results, without proper estimation of the dynamics associated with them and the requisite control techniques adopted. Here we have the process dynamics and control lab to let the upcoming engineer understand, practice and adopt the proper methodologies involved in an industrial set up for carrying out the operations and processes like the Interacting systems, Non-interacting systems, Simulations of the temperature controllers, Flow controllers, Level controllers, Pressure controllers with the use of in-built systems of P, PI & PID control strategies.

Simulation is the tool for predicting the effect of changes in the process and to predicate the performance of new system. Simulation laboratory is designed for final year B. Tech students. The purpose of introducing this lab for under graduate students is to enhance their coding skills. The experiments covered in this lab help the students to recall all fundamental concepts that they have learnt. This will make the student thirst about coding various chemical engineering processes. This will influence the students to accept challenges about advanced simulation and optimization in process industries.
