Practical demonstration of hardware, concepts and phenomena in relation to the broader context of a process engineering system.
- Solve open ended chemical engineering problems by researching, designing, planning and conducting experiments.
- Gather, manage, interpret and use experimental information appropriately.
- Effective communication using a variety of formats to a variety of audiences.
Students must attend one activity from each section.

Management Report and Poster
One Formal Report
Two Same-day Reports
Five reports will be completed:
One Management Report (worth 15%) - reports to management (due 6 working days after lab)
One Management Report and Poster (worth 25%) - poster is on A3 sheet, large print, brevity, clarity and presentation important (due 9 working days after lab)
Two Same-day Reports (worth 15%) - a rapidly-executed industrial report to immediate superior.
One Formal Report (worth 25%) - full experiment including a research component, in which experience drawn from a previous experiment and reports of other students who have done the same experiment are used to improve on that experiment in some fashion. First draft due 10 working days after lab, then draft back with corrections after oral presentation (3 working days after draft submission). Final report to be submitted 6 working days after presentation.
1 workshop (worth 5%): On August 16th a one day workshop on the start-up of the CAPE’s distillation column.
Wednesdays 8am Otakaro 146. First lecture February 24th.
Laboratories generally start at 8 am or later upon agreement with tutor and finish around 12 pm. Students will be able to choose 1 of 4 laboratory streams which will run on alternating Mondays and Fridays. Each stream will contain 4 of the following experiments:
• Reactor – tubular and CSTR, conversion of the reaction
• Filtration - scale up from laboratory to industrial size
• Heat Exchanger - Plate type - heat balances and transfer coefficients
• Spray Drier – water balances and drying rates of milk droplets
• Non Newtonian Flow - small tube viscometry for prediction of flow in large tubes
• Level Dynamics - modelling the filling and emptying of tanks
• Refrigeration - determining the thermodynamic efficiency
• Mixing – rates of dissolution of a suspended soluble particle
• Dissolving Oxygen – oxygen transfer in an air-bubbled stirred tank
• 5 laboratory days with contact time 3-6 hours each, time of report preparation 10-25 hours for different report styles, total 130 hours
• 7 lectures
• 1 workshop
