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.
Here’s a preview of what you’ll learn:
- The difference between precipitation and crystallization
- Understanding polymorphs and cocrystals
- Crystal size distribution
- Crystal purity and the effects of additives
- Batch and industrial crystallizers
- The Mixed-Suspension Mixed-Product Removal Crystallizer
- Non-ideal conditions
