The Department has four well-equipped laboratories in order to enable the students to understand the practical aspects of the theoretical knowledge imparted to them in the classrooms.
The four laboratories are:
(1) Transport Processes (Unit Operations) Laboratory consists of experiments on Fluid flow, Mechanical Operations, Heat Transfer, Mass Transfer
(2) Chemical Reaction Engineering Laboratory consists of various reactors like the batch reactor, plug flow reactor, continuously stirred tank reactor, semi-batch reactor and setups to study the residence time distribution in a continuously stirred tank reactor and in a plug flow reactor.
(3) Instrumentation and Process Control Laboratory has several systems to study the closed loop feedback control of temperature, pressure, level and flow, using different type of controller modes like proportional, proportional-integral (PI) and proportional-integral-derivative (PID), responses of interacting and non-interacting systems, pneumatic control valve trainer etc.
(4) Process Simulation Laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art computer terminals having licensed CHEMCAD-8, AYNSYS and MATLAB software for simulation studies.
