CEP: March 2014 This month's cover story focuses on the basics of solid-liquid equilibrium as the foundation for crystaliization process development and how to use SLE data in designing a feasible process. Other topics include pressure measurement and sizing control valves for lab-scale laminar flow. Editorial Whatever You Do, Don't Look Down You’ve spent hours writing your paper, preparing the slides for your presentation, and practicing your talk. You’ve endured the humiliation of the airport security inspection, the frustration of the weather-related flight delay, the discomfort of the cramped airplane seats, and the disruption of your circadian rhythm after crossing several time zones. Read more Share Introduction to Pressure Measurement March2014Back To BasicsEugen GassmannPressure-measuring devices come in a wide variety of designs and sizes to suit almost any application. This article describes the basics of pressure measurement and provides guidance on instrument selection. Solid-Liquid Equilibrium: The Foundation of Crystallization Process Design March2014Back To BasicsChristianto WibowoUse a phase diagram to identify the best temperature, pressure, and composition conditions, as well as the optimal sequence of process operations to achieve a desired crystallization. Size Control Valves for Lab-Scale Laminar Flow March2014Fluids and Solids HandlingGrant Girouard, Paul MartinExisting equations used to size control valves are inadequate for laboratory- and pilot-scale work. Use the simple equation introduced in this article to accurately size needle control valves for laminar and transitional flow.
