27-28 January 2017 : Two-day Refresher Course on CHEMICAL INDUSTRY FLUID FLOW
Posted On : 2nd January 2017

Under the auspices of the Technology & Energy Expert Committee, ICC is organizing a Two-day Refresher Course on "CHEMICAL INDUSTRY FLUID FLOW" on 27 & 28 January 2017. 

The venue of the Refresher Course is Rainbow Hall, Grand Hotel, Ballard Estate, Mumbai - 400001.

OBJECTIVE :

It is hard to imagine any chemical industry operations that does not handle or deal with any fluids. If there are fluids, they do flow or they are made to flow, may they be liquids, gases, vapors, suspensions, slurries, pastes or polymer melts. The science of fluid flow and engineering of its systems are very fundamental to the design and operation of various processes applied to chemical industries. They exhibit interesting and in some situations even intricate behaviour. The intent of this refresher course is to impart expert knowledge, share experiences and give hands-on practice of various aspects related to fluid flow to the concerned industry personnel.

PROGRAM:

The program is so designed as to facilitate an effective knowledge based interactive learning of practical significance. The detailed program is appended herewith. The program covers fundamentals of Fluid Flow, various aspects related to Non-Compressible as well as Compressible Fluids, Complex (non-Newtonian) Fluids, Two-Phase Flow, Special situations and their Operational Impact, Pressure Drop Calculations, Process Design of Piping and Power Calculations highlighting importance of Affinity Laws of Rotating Equipment.

An open forum will enable participants to share their plant problems and technical views on any aspects covered or not covered in the lectures. Its creative characteristic will offer an opportunity to quickly learn more of technical aspects.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Chemical / process plant personnel including chemical engineers engaged in operation, operation-support activities such as process analysis and troubleshooting; and those personnel having qualification other than chemical engineering but are engaged in chemical plant operation will benefit from this course. Those who have lost touch with chemical engineering theory but would like to regain such knowledge/ skill can take advantage of this opportunity. Course is recommended also for senior Managers and executives.

REGISTRATION FEESTo defray the expenses, the registration charges will be:
ICC Members: Rs. 8,625/- per delegate (Rs. 7,500/- plus 15% Service Tax)
Others: Rs. 11,500/- per delegate (Rs. 10,000/- plus 15% Service Tax)

CERTIFICATES WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE DELEGATE-PARTICIPANTS
AT THE END OF THE 2-DAY REFRESHER COURSE.
