The Mechanical Operations Laboratory is equipped for the study of the various mechanical operations associated with different solids as well as fluid. Experiments mainly deal with size reduction, size separation, solid separation etc. All basic experiments for fluid particle mechanics like Jaw Crusher, Ball Mill, Hammer Mill, Sieve Shaker, Plate and Frame Filter, Vacuum Leaf Filter, Cyclone Separator, Froth Floatation, Batch Sedimentation etc are available in this laboratory.

List of Major Equipment

  • Cyclone Separator
  • Plate and Frame Filter Press
  • Vacuum Leaf Filter
