Industry Partners confirms their commitment and support to the Department of Chemical Engineering
22 February 2018

Aveng Automated Control Solutions (ACS) visited the Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology's Department of Chemical Engineering, on Wednesday 14th February, to confirm their commitment, ranging over many years, supporting the Process Control Laboratory with hardware and state-of the-art software. 

In 2004, Emerson Process Systems, in collaboration with Alpret Control Specialists, through Sasol Technology, donated instrumentation and the Delta-V monitoring and control software that have led to major contributions toward research outputs of this focus group of the Department.  Through their continued support, the Control Laboratory in the Department of Chemical Engineering has been able to build and operate laboratory test rigs, illustrating typical control-related problems in industry.
