Energy research demands a proper analytical set-up for quantitative as well as qualitative analysis of samples like biomass, biofuels, etc. Centre for Energy houses a state of the art analytical lab for both quantitative and qualitative analysis. Some of the tests that can performed here are -
Characterization of fuels (Calorific value, viscosity, flash point, fire point, cloud & pour point, cetane index)
Proximate as well as ultimate analysis
Gas Chromatograph analysis
The laboratory is equipped with Gas Chromatograph (GC), Thermo-Gravimetric Analyzer (TGA), High - Performance Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC), Oxygen bomb calorimeter, vacuum rotary evaporator to name a few of the major equipments.
