Seminar on Advances in viscosity measurement & Powder Flow Characterization on 7th July, 2014


A one day seminar on “Advances in viscosity measurement & Powder Flow Characterization” was organized by Design & Rural Technology Department, CSIR-IMMT, Bhubaneswar in association with Brookfield Engineering, USA on Monday 7th July, 2014. About 65 delegates from industries such as NALCO, HINDALCO, CEPET, JSPL, NMDC, Indian Oil Corporation including scientists, academicians, student & research scholoars participated in the seminar. Dr. P.K. Senapati, Senior Principal scientist & Head, Design & Rural Technology Department welcomed the participants and emphasized the importance of viscosity measurement, rheological characterization of fluids/slurry and powder flow characterization from industrial design and process perspectives. Prof. B.K. Mishra, Director, CSIR-IMMT, Bhubaneswar delivered the inaugural speech on the occasion. Mr. Barry Ridley, Brookfield Engineering, USA delivered talk on Advances in viscosity measurements & powder flow characterization using standard methods. Live demonstration on rheological characterization and powder flow behaviour with mineral and ore powder samples were carried out with sophisticated rheometers and powder flow testers to the participants. Mr. Niloy Shah, Country Manager, Brookfield Engineering, proposed vote of thanks on the occasion.
