Crystallization can be a powerful separation tool in a broad range of industries. But to optimize it, you must clearly understand the process. Join crystallization expert Wayne Genck for a practical overview of the basics of crystallization and precipitation and how to apply the fundamentals of crystal growth and nucleation to industrial processes.
The Basics of Crystallization
In two days, you’ll learn about the theory of material, energy and population balances and how to apply it in the production of amorphous and crystalline materials. You’ll explore how to develop methods for scaling up crystallizers and precipitators. You’ll gain a new understanding of both batch and continuous crystallization and precipitation. And, at the end of the course, you’ll have the opportunity to address your specific challenges in a Q&A with the instructor.
Dr. Genck is president of Genck International, a consulting firm specializing in crystallization and precipitation. He has consulted with over 250 companies on a wide range of issues, including the impact of impurities, the effect of additives, scale-up, and more. Dr. Genck has written chapters on crystallization for two industry handbooks as well as numerous articles published in chemical engineering magazines. Read more
