CHEMISTA 2016

CHEMISTA 2016 was organized by chemical department of V.V.P. Engineering College Rajkot on 3rd April, 2016. It can also be referred as the independent body of students who organized the event along with many other non technical initiatives. CHEMISTA had included 6 technical events like Treasure hunt (Identifying chemicals using their properties and reaction tendencies), Crack the interview (Including HR, technical and PI), Chemo-Car (Car run by chemical reactions), Design and Build (working and non working models), war of words (Debate) and Quiz competition (general and technical). Apart from these technical events there were various non technical events organized like snake and ladders, catch the balls, shift the cards, mini militia and blast the balloon. The event started at 7:50 am in the morning and successfully ended at 2:00 pm. At the end of the session, Prize distribution of all technical events were conducted under the pious presence of chairman Shri Praveen Kaka, Honourable Principal Dr. Sachin Parikh and HOD of Chemical engineering department Dr. Piyush Vanzara.

VISIT TO EPP DESIGNING INDUSTRY

Industry designed pipes, scrubbers and absorbers. Pipe manufacturing section was shown to students. Manufacturing of pipe is done in different processes such as lining, fixing and hydro testing. Lining is done on mild steel mold then resin is applied to it. Pipes are manufactured are Of (FRP) which is fiber reinforced plastic. They are better as are lighter in weight, easy to Manufacture and is less corrosive. Miller is used as releasing film. Pressure is applied by hydro and leakage is checked.

3a 3b

Laboratory specifications are checked by Universal testing machine (utm). Industrial visit was very informative as designing purposes.

VISIT TO GIRRIRAJ MILK PRODUCTS

Industry manufactured different products with its specifications. Firstly powder is prepared Using heaters and condensers from milk to increase the requirements of SLM and calories in milk. This powder is then after added to raw milk to increase the nutritional value of it as per market demand. Raw milk contains 6-7% a fat which is increased to 9-10%.

Chillers are provided in unit for separation of water from cream. Chilling is done using ammonia and Freon as coolant. Storage area provided is for 2000 liters a day. This visit added to information about awareness of nutritional value of food products.

4a 4b

Ultimately, the two visits added to our basic knowledge to some extent and was very informative.

Semester 3rd:

Industrial Visit Date:-2nd August, 2014

Total students:56

The students of chemical engineering of 3rd sem have visited three industries as given below:

Revlon Industries, Shapar

The students have learned about manufacturing process of red oxide from the raw material i.e.,iron scrap,ammonia gas and water. The slurry type of fluid is made by melting scrap in water and ammonia gas. This whole process was taking place in a wooden tank open from top. Then filteration of slurry is done to remove impurities. And then again heating of slurry to get thick paste of red oxide. Then this paste is compressed using plate and frame type of filter So that dry-wet cake form of red oxide is obtained and then its dryed further in open air.

Orchev Pharma, Shapar

Its products Helps in curing acidity and alsar. The students learned about different method of storage of raw material, manufacturing process and various unit operations like crystallization, drying etc. HDPE tank are used for storage of H2SO4. There students learned about cooling tower, sand filter, reactors, condenser, effluent treatment plant etc.

Major cement industry, shapar

The raw material are limestone, silicate, coal etc. The first limestone and silicate are grind in ball mill to particular size. Then by conveyor belt proper amount of ingredients are lyed down then this mixer is feed into vertical kiln. And due to chemical reaction at end of kiln cement is obtained. Then this cement is send for grinding into ball mill and (2.5 – 3)% of Gypsum is during grinding. Now its is stored in silos were packing machine come into action.
