Department of Polymerization Engineering
In the department of polymerization engineering the main activities has been focused on slurry, bulk and gas phase polymerization of olefins. Also polymerization processes of styrene such as RAFT and ATRP polymerizations are among the areas of interest.
Polymerization Engineering Laboratory:
In addition to general facilities, the laboratory is equipped with 4 automatic high pressure polymerization set-ups comprising of Buchi reactors which are connected to feed purification units. The systems are capable of monitoring and saving polymerization conditions during polymerization. The systems are directed towards:
The group has developed a setup for preparing MgCl2 supports with predefined PSD.
Some of the most important projects carried out in this department:
The services provided by the group for local industries:
1- Preparation of simulators for industrial polyolefin plants
2- Giving consultant in the areas of olefin polymerizations in order to
3- Giving consultant to improve morphology of polyolefins via improving morphology of the catalyst
4- Giving services for characterization of polyolefins
5- Providing MgCl2 adduct as ZN catalyst base for laboratory uses per ordered particle sizes
Short course trainings:
1- Short course in polymerization reaction engineering
2- Short course in polyolefin reaction engineering
