Chemical Engineering Applications on Unit Operations of Tanning Industry–Case Studies

Rames C. Panda and P. G. Rao

Abstract—Tanning industries still follow primitive methods to handle chemicals and raw materials that give rise to spill over of costly chemicals, health hazards and hence incur losses. Computerized dosing systems are needed to reduce spillage and wastage of costly chemicals in tanning operations. The unit operations in leather making are made into modules. Engineering inputs through automation (using PLC) must be brought into picture to improve the working atmosphere and to reduce losses. The results show improved quality control and healthy work atmosphere in the industry can be achieved by use of computer aided dosing systems (CADS).
