Mixing for Success in Batch Systems
- Type: Archived Webinar
- Level: Intermediate
- Duration: 1 hour
- PDHs: 1.00
Effective fluid mixing undergirds successful process research, development and operations in the chemical process industries. In this webinar, batch processes that require mixing are discussed and the mixing challenges and opportunities for achieving process success are described. How mixing affects the course of batch processes as well as the final process results are presented highlighting the pertinent physicochemical phenomena. An understanding of these is important for success in process development and scale-up of chemical processes.
They are illustrated with several examples including thought experiments, as well as ideas and approaches for lab studies and modeling designed to gain understanding of the controlling hydrodynamic environment needed for process success. In addition key steps are proposed in addressing the needs for mixing in process development, scale-up and design. Process research and development personnel and process engineers will find the insights and awareness gained from this webinar useful in their industrial roles.
Victor Atiemo-Obeng is passionate about most effective engineering science research and practice. He believes that effective fluid mixing undergirds successful chemical process research, development and operations. In nearly 34 years at the Dow Chemical Company where he rose to the rank of Fellow, one of the top 100 technical leaders in the company’s Core R&D function, he championed engineering and process sciences to successfully commercialize processes across Dow’s businesses.
He was a key contributor to the company’s Global Project Methodology and the Scale-up Checklist...Read more
