How did thay do that? Great Infographic

As an engineer, it is imperative for us to have basic and extra knowledge and facts. It is useful for our communication and personal usage at work and at home. Imagine the faces of your subordinate, friends, superior, family when you tell them these interesting and fun facts. With that in mind, I would like to share this superb infographic that contains various information that is related to us, engineers. The source of this infographic is from www.bestonlineengineeringdegree.com. Check it…

Be An Expert in At Least One Chemical Engineering Area

If you read this article, chances are you are a chemical engineering student or already graduated as a chemical engineer sometime ago. Congratulations!!!  Being a chemical engineer, there are plenty of job offers from various fields and industry. A chemical engineer can be in the oil and gas, biotechnology, oil and gas, polymer, plantations, educations, services, manufacturing, moulding, computer and others. The list are too long to be listed here. Nevertheless, a chemical engineer who has additional strength of expertise…

Chemical Engineering World: New Year 2013

Time move so fast that 2012 has just left us just like that. 12 days has passed since we entered the new year 2013 and I have not yet wish you, my readers, a very happy new year. This was mainly due to my hectic research activities such as writing several technical papers related to my study and this year I must submit my Ph.D thesis. How time move so fast? I began my career as an academician in July…

Industrial Tools at their Best

 What exactly are industrial tools? Let me provide my understanding on what industrial tools actually are. Briefly, industrial tools are equipment that can help making certain work in plant, refinery, workshop etc faster, smooth, easier and more accurate. Industrial tools are, crucially, an inevitable part of the industrial work. I witnessed and was directly involved using few industrial tools when I was involved in some projects such as internal pipeline chemical cleaning or the physical refinery plant annual shutdown. Let’s…

Chemical Engineering World: Propylene Present and Future

Polypropylene, acrylonitrile, propylene oxide, 2-propanol, cumene/phenol, oxo-alcohols, isopropanol, acrylic acids, and so many other derivatives are all obtained from propylene; a main building block in petrochemicals industry.  The increasing propylene-derivatives demand in the last few years has largely absorbed conventional available supplies of propylene as that from steam cracking of naphtha, and FCC off gas. On-purpose propane dehydrogenation is becoming a more economic favorable way to produce large amounts of propylene. Serious search for other routes for propylene production as…

How to create your own Google Scholar Account?

If you are a researcher whether in the academia or any research institution, it is good to have publicize your research expertise and your publication. This is imperative so that those with similar expertise can easily find you and perhaps perform a join venture research or something like that. One fantastic way to do just that is via Google Scholar, a product of the mighty Google. What is Google Scholar? Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that…

It’s not about Bolt and Nuts, It’s about Torque as well

I thought I’d do a post about some of the tools used in engineering. And, as I never like to generalise or skirt over a detailed topic, I’ve decided to focus in on torque devices and nuts and bolts. Previously, I only knew a little about nuts and bolts. I do have some practical experiences dealing with various types and sizes of nuts and bolts to hold flanges and plate heat exchanger frames. That experience I gained when I was…

Xi Jinping , A Chemical Engineer to rule China

Do you know that the present leader of China is trained as a chemical engineer from Tsinghua University, China? Let’s get to know about this powerful personality. Xi Jinping has been chosen as the next leader of China, elevating the qualified chemical engineer to a position of extreme power for the next ten years. Xi, the son of a veteran of the ruling Communist Party, studied chemical engineering at Tsinghua University from 1975–79. He moved away from chemical engineering to…

My Humble Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC)

I was trained as a chemical engineer and had previously worked as a chemical and process engineer within the oil and gas as well as the oil and fats industry. It was a really pleasant, exciting, adventurous and memorable journey all together. However, I rarely share my story about my small involvement in the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) aspect in my previous workplace. This is mainly because the exposure I received was minute compared to several of my colleagues…

Chemical Engineering World: Basic Waste Management Process

Believe it or not, we produce waste everyday. Whether in our own home or refinery or working site, waste is created. Such a huge waste need to be properly managed, otherwise the environment surrounding us will be a bad place to live and work. At home, my maid (servant) manages our domestic waste, which is of course a small scale. She separates all the waste papers, waste card boards, waste metals, waste plastics and organic waste in her own way.…
