Workshop I

Title: Process Optimization Through Better Separations


Conventional phase separation devices do not remove all traces of contamination.  As a result, solid and liquid contaminants tend to persist in liquid or gas streams, and can create operating challenges (foaming, fouling, reliability issues, downtime).  Transcend will present a series of case studies that illustrate how advances in separation technologies have made it possible to accomplish the kinds of separation efficiencies that were not previously attainable.
