Collaborative Research Program

Under this program, a joint research with external institutions is carried out on an equal level. The external institutions may be industry, company, university laboratory, research institution, etc. and the joint research may be conducted at either Electrochemistry and Corrosion lab. or the external institution, or both. You can contact us to discuss detail of collaborations: expected research outcomes, period, funds, and plans.

Analytical Services

  • Gas adsorption/desorption isotherm (BET surface area, pore size distribution, pore volume of porous materials). (see facilities)
  • Linear polarization, cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), battery analysis using potensiostat/galvanostat instruments. This analysis can be used for the evaluation of corrosion, battery, fuel cell, etc. (see facilties).
  • Other analysis for water quality, metals, proximate and ultimate analysis, etc. For more detail and availability contact here.

Consultative Works

We can provide consultation services based on our expertise for company as part of the industry/company project.

  • Analysis of chemical process industries using sophisticated software such as Aspen Hysys, Ansys Fluent, Excel-based, etc.
  • Basic engineering design and feasibility study.

Training

  • Corrosion
  • Process simulation using Aspen Hysys
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics using Ansys Fluent
  • Instrumentation (Gas adsorption/desorption isotherms, potensiostat/galvanostat, freeze dryer, electrospinning, etc)
  • Customize training (basic, intermediate, advance). Please contact us.

Examples of our services and collaborations

JOINT RESEARCH

PT. Gunung Bale

In this joint research, we jointly developed a process to manufacture silica powder with specific properties for specialty products from pyrophillite mineral (Al2O3.4SiO2.H2O). The research activity was conducted at our lab and we periodically report the results to the company. The research fund was fully provided by the company.

PT. Trans Jawa Sulawesi
We conduct joint research with the company on the development of advanced materials for specific applications from mineral resources, specifically magnesium. The research activity was conducted at our laboratory and we periodically report the research results to the company. The research was fully funded by the company.

CONSULTANCIES

Perum Perhutani
We conduct a project on basic Engineering Design of Sago starch plant in Kais District, Sorong Selatan Regency, Papua Barat Province for Perum Perhutani. The design was used as the bidding documents for EPC company who wished to build the plant.

Total E&P Indonesie
In this project, we assisted the company to find out and solve the problem encountered in the fiscal gas metering system for five natural gas fields in Kalimantan Timur. We studied Geometrical effect to gas measurements on fiscal gas metering system to find out why the results of measurement was different when using a certain configuration. We simulated the flow using CFD and successfully pointed out the root cause of the differences and recommended solutions.

PT. Petrokimia Gresik
We assisted the company to evaluate the problem encountered in the air preheater. The problem was the temperature of exhaust gas out of the preheater suddenly increased significantly. The exhaust gas was the combustion gas used to heat the primary reformer to produce syngas from natural gas utilized in convection region to recover the heat.

PT. Kaltim Daya Mandiri
We performed an evaluation on the root-cause of the suddenly drop performance of the heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) in a gas turbine combined cycle power plant. Based on the evaluation, we provided some recommendations to improve the performance of the HRSG power plant.

PT. Pertamina
In this project, we performed a process simulation on the CDU and HVU unit to evaluate the conditions to obtain the desired products.
(in collaboration with other labs in Dept. Chemical Engineering ITS)
