Student Thomas Machin wins Excellent Paper Award

Student Thomas Machin (School of Chemical Engineering), won an Excellent Paper Award for his research on ‘Electrical Resistance Rheometry – The Application of Multi-scale Tomography Sensors to Provide in-pipe Rheology in Complex Processes’ at the 9th World Congress on Industrial Process Tomography (WCIPT).  

The World Congress aims to explore new themes in the science and technology of Industrial Process Tomography (IPT). The 9th World Congress addressed significant progress in foundational topics and pioneering industrial applications.

Hosted at the University of Bath in September 2018, the WCIPT attracted over 150 world-leading research teams and industries from all around the globe, with over 100 pioneering papers presented. Six Excellent Paper Awards were selected by a Review Group drawn from a Scientific Consultative Panel. Tom’s presentation also won a presentation prize.

WCIPT provides a unique opportunity for researchers and industrial users to review significant progress through paper and poster presentations, see industrial demonstrations, and collaborate.

The Congress is the primary biennial meeting for International Society of Industrial Process Tomography (ISIPT) members. In coming years, the IPT will play a key role in sustainable industrial processes with great promise in making use of multi-dimensional and extensive data in process industry.
