The new parameter introduced here will yield more meaningful results when a fixed-bed reactor is scaled up for process development or scaled down for plant support.
Terra L. Vincent, Peter Welander
Finding the proper nozzle for specific applications doesn't have to be difficult. By applying basic concepts of nozzle technology, you can create a droplet profile that best suits your needs.
Many batch operations can be scaled up directly from the bench to the plant by developing the process and performing lab testing with the scaleup in mind.
