A laboratory fractionating column is a piece of glassware used to separate vaporized mixtures of liquid compounds with close volatilities. It can also be called a fractional column. Most commonly used is either a Vigreux column or a straight column packed with glass beads or metal pieces such as Raschig rings.

Six Sigma is a business management strategy originally developed by Motorola, USA in 1986.[1][2] As of 2010[update], it is widely used in many sectors of industry, although its use is not without controversy. Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes.[3]

In a PFR, one or more fluid reagents are pumped through a pipe or tube. The chemical reaction proceeds as the reagents travel through the PFR. In this type of reactor, the changing reaction rate creates a gradient with respect to distance traversed; at the inlet to the PFR the rate is very high, but as the concentrations of the reagents decrease and the concentration of the product(s) increases

At steady-state, the flow rate in must equal the mass flow rate out, otherwise the tank will overflow or go empty (transient state). While the reactor is in a transient state the model equation must be derived from the differential mass and energy balances.In a CSTR, one or more fluid reagents are introduced into a tank reactor equipped with an impeller while the reactor effluent is removed. The

In chemical engineering, chemical reactors are vessels designed to contain chemical reactions. The design of a chemical reactor deals with multiple aspects of chemical engineering. Chemical engineers design reactors to maximize net present value for the given reaction. Designers ensure that the reaction proceeds with the highest efficiency towards the desired output product, producing the

It would take too long to list all the products that are impacted by chemical engineers, but knowing what industries employ them may help you comprehend the scope of their work. Chemical engineers work in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, polymers, biotechnology, and environmental health and

Pre-University students should take as many math and science courses as possible, both during school and as part of after-school programs. Students aged 5-9 should do additional math, puzzles, and building or design projects. Students aged 9-12 should take extra math, and if inspired, explore pre-algebra and geometry. Students aged 12-18 might consider taking advanced algebra, chemistry, calculus

Lastly I am going to say be curious. Be curious about problems, be curious about solutions, and be curious about all those tools (equations, connectors, and machine tools) that will help you find solutions to problems. If you let your mind just sit waiting for a solution to easily manifest itself, it won’t. You have to be curious and be active about wanting to become a better engineer. I plan on

If you want to sit around and do equations all day then go to a big name school that’s completely hands-off. If you want to learn how to engineer things and design great things then don’t say no when someone says you want to get some Machine Shop time. Those really greasy rough looking guys/gals that spend all day turning cranks and programming CNC machines (CNC stands for computer numerically

A big thing I learned in my last year of undergrad and I continue to notice on the job is that people who take things apart are able to find more solutions. This stems from knowing what’s out there. If you take say a typical desktop computer apart you know that there are a lot of circuit boards, come wiring harnesses, and a fan. That would be one way to look at it. But if you begin to look at

A few of the online resources that are key for any Chemical Engineer:www.lib.berkeley.edu/CHEM/http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/#chemical-engineeringhttp://www.mcmaster.com/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_engineeringKeep these around at all times and use them as much as possible to solve any problem!

First off you should want to solve problems. If you don’t like to solve problems you are going to most likely be miserable as an engineer. If you are in classes right now you are probably wondering, as I did, why the heck your professors are making you do problem sets that take 10-15 hours to complete, and make you search several sources (textbooks, computer programs, online resources, even

Becoming a good chemical engineer isn’t something that will happen straight out of college (takes a lot of bumps to make it work!), some may say you are born with the skills; that may be partly true, but I believe you need to acquire the thought process that engineers have through years of experience. You can speed up the process if you know what to look for and how to handle problem situations.I

I will be doing a few posts on the the design process of a chemical engineer. This post will be a quick over view of the design process and I will go into more detail with the subsequent posts.The basic five-step process usually used in a problem-solving works for design problems as well. Since design problems are usually defined more vaguely and have a multitude of correct answers, the process

Pumps play a very important roll in any engineer and especially for chemical engineers. Knowing how to operate and maintain a pump as well as read a pump curve play a key roll in running a plant or any process. There are 2 main types of pumps centrifugal (Kinetic), and positive displacement pump.There are two main categories of pumps - kinetic and positive displacement. Almost all pumps fall

Engineers from around the world will hold discussions at The University of Texas at El Paso to address critical problems affecting the planet.The National Academy of Engineering has called engineers to action by identifying the 14 "Grand Challenges" that need to be solved in order to improve quality of life and health, create a sustainable future and increase renewable energy.UTEP will host "

I must say in my short time of being an engineer is that you need to be able to do quick calculations. And, by that I mean quick multiplications and back of the envelope calculations. These calculations will help show that you are smart and quick and can come to a conclusion quickly. Also you will always be able to back up any solutions you come to on the job with a quick calculation or some

text Tip #8: Stay Current
Another problem I have noticed with many engineers is that they do not stay current. Here are a few quick easy ways to stay current:-Read Scientific Journals-Reread old material from school-Buy at least one handbook for what you are doing (e.g. Albright's Chemical Engineering Handbook)-Keep update on what is going on in the world (e.g. Digg's science section)-Take online courses or go back to

text Tip #7: Find The Job
Here is a quick run over on how I found my job:-Craigslist: This is the best resource to get your resume out to multiple areas. All craigslist requires is one resume that can be across multiple cities. There are also so many different companies now using Craigslist to reach a potential worker. Responding to these ads had the highest reply rate for me. I believe this is because it takes a

text Tip #6: Green Engineering
One big aspect of being an engineer and especially and chemical engineer is what can you do for the environment. Every process that a chemical engineer works with, tries to optimize or create MUST be environmentally friendly. A chemical engineer must work with his company to develop practices, products and services that have a minimal (or hopefully positive) impacts on the environment. Also,

text Tip #5: Data
Data is the one of the most important part of being a chemical engineer. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of quality of data. Many data sources such as books, on the Internet or in scientific journals are inaccurate or simply wrong. This can be due to problems with experiments, errors in processing measurements, misuse of extrapolation or estimation techniques, or something as simple as

text Tip #4: Process Engineering
I can admit that I am no expert on Process Engineering, but I can give you a little insight into what I have learned so far:-Understand the medium (liquid, gas, solid or mixture) you are working with.-If the process is a know process read all the literature!-If the process is a new process read any process literature related to the process.-Reread your Process Engineering book.-Ask questions.-Do

text Tip #3: The Resume
Here are some tips I have picked up so far. A resume is one of the key elements of success in being an engineer and landing your dream job.in an engineering job search. An effective resume must grab the attention of the reader quickly.BackgroundThe good engineers are good at getting the basics of their projects and experience down on paper. However, most engineers are not as good at showcasing

text Tip #2: Know the Process
This is very important because you are an engineer and you need to know the details of the processes you will be working on. First thing you need to learn is a P&ID program. This will allow you to create a P&ID (piping and instrument diagram) of the process or a flow diagram of the process you will be working on. I currently use Microsoft Visio and I would recommend it to anyone. The best way
