Prof. J. B. Naik (Ph.D.)
Department of Chemical Engineering
This department runs B. Tech & M. Tech. course in Chemical Engg. with the focus on heat/ mass/ momentum transfer, PED, CRE, IPC, Modeling and simulation etc. The laboratories are well equipped with heat exchangers (shell and tube, finned tube, double pipe), distillation columns (bubble cap, packed tower, steam, vacuum), extraction towers (solid-liquid, liquid-liquid), absorption systems, cooling towers, evaporators, crystallizers, reactor (CSTR, PFR, Packed bed, Fluidized bed), dryers, crushers, cyclones, filtration devices, pumps (centrifugal and reciprocating) etc. The characterization instruments cover techniques for determination of diffusivity, mass, & heat transfer coefficient, Reynolds No., viscosity, coefficient of discharge etc. Microprocessor based control laboratory and modeling and simulation laboratory equipped with 25 P-4 PC?s and latest software?s like MATLAB and CHEMCAD, are the special features of Chemical Engineering Division.
THURST AREAS: Reactive distillation, Modeling and simulation, biotechnology, combined Mass and Heat Transfer, CFD, Catalysis, Nanotechnology, Foam Bed Reactor etc.
