Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger Cleaning Video

When a heat exchanger is continuously used, it will gradually lose the ability to transfer heat as the fouling and scaling develops on the surface of the heating material. When this occur, any heat exchanger will become inefficient and needs cleaning. When a heat exchanger is clean, it needs to be stopped. Hence, that’s why there is a need to have a back up heat exchanger in a particular section of the plant. Otherwise, the plant will either run with…

Chemical Engineering in the 21st Century

Are you a chemical engineer? or perhaps a chemical engineering student? Chemical Engineering is a universal engineering discipline compared to electrical, mechanical, civil, mechatronic, robotic engineering. When I studied my first degree 18 years ago, I do not know that much about chemical engineering related work and discipline. Most of my friends also were not sure what this field is all about. Interestingly, that time, and probably still this time, students decided to choose chemical engineering because they love chemistry.…

Does A Chemical Engineering Student Wants to Be A Chemical Engineer?

Presently, I am actively teaching and supervising students. It is important to know our students. What I mean is not to know them very close but enough in order for us to know the best way to treat them based on who they are, their background, based on what they want to be and several other factors. One of the most frequent question I asked my student are what do you want to be after you graduated as a chemical…

Both subjects are very interesting, challenging and exciting. This time, the Process Control and Instrumentation subject will be conducted via the Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach. The 3rd year students…

Basics of Hydraulic System in Engineering

It is indeed very tough to see any industry without a slight touch of hydraulic system. Hydraulic system is crucial for various industries as well as our daily life routine, but its’ importance are occasionally unrealized by many. One of the most common hydraulic system application is in our vehicle breaking system. I’ll explain further about the breaking system later in this article. Anyway, from my previous experiences, I worked with several types of equipments and machineries employing hydraulic system.…
