IEM Shout Out – 2017-11 2nd International Junior Chem-E Car Competition 2017 (MINES International Exhibition & Convention Centre)

October 27, 2017

My technical division will be hosting the event on the 3rd and 4th November, 2017.

The competition aims to challenge students of primary schools to design and construct a small-sized car that is fabricated from reusable/recyclable items such as ice-cream sticks, bottle caps and straws. This Chem-E car shall traverse into a goal post and/or hit bowling pins in the car performance challenges. In addition, the participants shall elucidate their design creativity and issues related to safety and environment via poster presentation.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-10 One Day Course on Shell and Tube Exchanger Thermal Design

October 5, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a one day course on the 31st October, 2017. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Anwar Ahmad.

During this Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Thermal Design course, there will be overview on the thermal design for designing shell and tube heat exchanger by considering design, operational, and maintenance perspective. The design of the heat exchanger is extremely important, as it is the key element of a heat-exchanged system. This is not only on the desired temperature to achieve during operation but also when considering the optimum design prior procuring an exchanger. Furthermore, properly designed heat exchanger can reduce the turn-down time for maintenance as no frequent cleaning is required while operating the plant or platform. Technologies involved in this thermal technology will be discussed during the workshop to highlight the importance and advantages when designing and operating shell and tube heat exchanger (STHE).

Ir. Anwar Ahmad is a registered Professional Engineer with Board of Engineer (BEM), Corporate Member with Institute of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM), Corporate Member with Institute of Chemical Engineers, UK (IChemE), Chartered Engineer from Engineering Council, UK with more than eleven (11) years experiences in process engineering in oil and gas industry, mainly in design with engineering firm and operation for technical support during turn around.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-10 Pre AGM Talk on “Plastics Film Extrusion Processes, Applications and How Chemical Engineers Could Embed in This Industry”

September 30, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 7th October, 2017. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The talk will be presented by Mr. Oh

Plastics Film Extrusion is a high-volume manufacturing process in which resin is melted and formed into a continuous profile. Different processes used to produce Plastics Films, various types of Plastics Films available in the market and its applications will be discussed. Advantages of Chemical Engineers to compete in Plastics Film Extrusion will be discussed, and several success stories of Chemical Engineers in Plastics Film industry will be shared during the talk.

Mr. Oh obtained his Advanced Diploma in Engineering, TAR College in 1992, he pursued his Master Degress In Engineering from University of Warwick, UK in 1996. He worked in Plastics Films Industry until year 2005 before he started his career path in Training Industry. He trained huge number of working adults throughout Malaysia on Plastics Materials and Film Extrusion topics. He works as technical consultant for film extrusion organisation. He also committee members of The Plastics & Rubber Institute Malaysia (PRIM). He operating his training & development company currently, providing technical training and consultancy services to the industry. He also partnerred with Malaysian Plastics Manufacturers Association (MPMA) in providing Plastics Technology training to their members utilising Human Resource Development Funds .
