Quake Manufacturing, Inc. has been in business since 1990. That’s when we started producing fixtures, gauges, tools, prototype parts and quality machined parts for the manufacturing industry. Since then, our company has grown to fill 8,000 square feet of production area. Our customer base has expanded to include markets from automotive to customer products. But our philosophy has remained the same – to ensure customer satisfaction by striving to exceed the customer’s expectations.
Our commitment is to solving customer’s needs and enhancing production output, prototype development, and helping our customers improve their business processes. We are constantly adding to our machining capabilities and making a significant investment in our employees to better serve our customers.
Chemical engineering involves the application of several principles. Today, the field of chemical engineering is a diverse one, covering areas from biotechnology and nanotechnology to mineral processing.
Chemical engineering involves managing plant processes and conditions to ensure optimal plant operation. Chemical reaction engineers construct models for reactor analysis and design using laboratory data and physical parameters, such as chemical thermodynamics, to solve problems and predict reactor performance.
Plant construction is coordinated by project engineers and project managers depending on the size of the investment. A chemical engineer may do the job of project engineer full-time or part of the time, which requires additional training and job skills, or act as a consultant to the project group. In USA the education of chemical engineering graduates from the Baccalaureate programs accredited by ABET do not usually stress project engineering education, which can be obtained by specialized training, as electives, or from graduate programs.
A unit operation is a physical step in an individual chemical engineering process. Unit operations (such as crystallization, filtration, drying and evaporation) are used to prepare reactants, purifying and separating its products, recycling unspent reactants, and controlling energy transfer in reactors. On the other hand, a unit process is the chemical equivalent of a unit operation. Along with unit operations, unit processes constitute a process operation.
