Sharing Chemical Engineer's Challenging, Exciting, Interesting and Stimulating Life...



I'm now a Chartered Engineer (IChemE)

In the early morning of yesterday, I noticed one email from Karen Brown of IChemE which I read from my Samsung Galaxy Ace Mobile phone (not iPhone). I was very anxious to read her email because the title of the email stated "IChemE Application to transfer to Chartered Membership". I scanned the email swiftly and later read it word by word. Yes! The result from the interview in August is out and I'm now accepted as a member of IChemE and Chartered Engineer. This is the beginning of my professional career as a professional engineer under IChemE.

Among the interesting massage obtained from the email was that I am now eligible to use designatory letters MIChemE after my name. In addition, I am also eligible to use the CEng designatory letters after my name too. CEng stands for Chartered Engineer. This status is given by the Engineering Council of UK.

Based on the email from Karen, I logined into my IChemE website wanting to updated my personal status. I saw that my membership status has already changed to Member Status. Everything has been automatically updated. This is so cool.

I'm now in the process of preparing the IChemE personal stamp and also waiting for the certificate.

I must say that I'm so proud to be an IChemE member. I remembered becoming an IChemE student member in 1998. Then in 2000 I upgraded the membership to Associate Member allowing me to use the designatory AMIChemE. Now in 2011, thanked God I successfully managed to be an IChemE member. Being an IChemE member, I am allowed to do some professional networking, collaborations, knowledge sharing, participate in subject groups and the one that I always use is Knovel database to read online books that is subscribe. This is mainly for my Ph.D research references.

Are you an IChemE member? If not, register now... :)

Unboxing and Fixing of Renewable Gas Purifier for GC

I am currently using one piece of very delicate instrument. That instrument is call Gas Chromatography (GC). The one that I'm using now is a Agilent 6890N GC TCD-FID. The GC requires helium, hydrogen and compressed air gas to run. However, this gasses need to be filtered to avoid tiny particulate and impurities from entering the column and trigger many unwanted consequences.

Recently we purchased 3 units of gas purifiers and I've installed them. I would like to share the experience in unboxing an Agilent Renewable Gas Purifier for GC (part number G3440-60004). My colleague, Mahadhir helped me video shoot the unboxing of this gas purifier.

My English may not be good and clear. I hope you can bear with it. Check it out...



I look forward for any comments and feedbacks from you guys. Cheers.

Update: In the lab, myself and my research group members are not restricted to certain instruments and equipments. Numerous instruments and equipments like the one in the video are purchased, tested and used in our quest to perform quality and reliable research. I must say some of them include skilled services such as radiation level measurement, environmental analysis and analytical chemistry like the one provided by Tracerco, an industrial technology firm based in UK.
