Knowledge of how mixing affects the course of processes as well as the final process results is important for success in process development and scale-up of chemical processes. The requisite knowledge can be developed by carefully examining the physicochemical phenomena occurring in the process and understanding what’s important.

In this webinar, the fourth in the series on industrial mixing, the focus is on key steps in addressing the needs for mixing in process development, scale-up and design. These 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. Challenges and opportunities for success are also highlighted.

Process research and development personnel and process engineers will find the insights and awareness gained from this webinar useful in their roles.

This is the fourth in a multi-part series on Industrial Mixing. Please note that each webinar in the series requires separate registration, and has been designed to function as both a standalone presentation and a component in the series. The other webinars in the series are Fluid Mixing: Still Needed for the Process Industries in the 21st Century, Identifying Mixing Problems, and Mixing Scale-Up: Small Mistakes Mean Big Success.


Dr. Victor Atiemo-Obeng

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
