Equipment Name: Dean–Stark apparatus

Description: This apparatus is used to determine the water content in petroleum products such as fuel oils, lubricating oils, tars and tar products etc. The material is heated under reflux with a water immiscible solvent, which forms a constant boiling azeotropic mixture with water. Any suitable hydrocarbon boiling in the 1000C-2000C ranges may be used.

Equipment Name: Packed Bed Reactor

Description: This setup is designed to study the effect of various system parameters like solvent temperature, solvent rate, and particle size on the % age recovery of oil from solid and the performance characteristics of solvent extraction of a particular component from a packed bed of solid material.

Equipment Name: Pensky Marten Flash Point Apparatus

Description: This is used to determine the flash point of oils, lubricating oils, viscous materials and suspension of solids.

Equipment Name: Hot Air Oven

Description: Hot air ovens are electrical devices which use dry heat to sterilize. They were originally developed by Pasteur. Generally, they use a thermostat to control the temperature. Their double walled insulation keeps the heat in and conserves energy, the inner layer being a poor conductor and outer layer being metallic.

Equipment Name: Digital Conductivity Meter

Description: An electrical conductivity meter (EC meter) measures the electrical conductivity in a solution. It has multiple applications in research and engineering, with common usage in hydroponics, aquaculture, aquaponics, and freshwater systems to monitor the amount of nutrients, salts or impurities in the water.

Equipment Name: Bio Fermenter

Description: An apparatus for growing organisms (yeast, bacteria, or animal cells) under controlled conditions. Used in industrial processes to produce pharmaceuticals, vaccines, or antibodies.
