Course Overview

Learning Objectives:

Crystallization is a separation process used in many industrial applications such as pharmaceuticals and food industry (sugar and salt). Modelling this process involves the resolution of many equations' systems related to mass energy and population balance. Consequently crystallization process operation and equipment design is particularly critical and needs a deep understanding of thermodynamics and transport phenomena.

Who should take this course

This course is intended for professionals involved in design control and operation of crystallization processes. These are in particular process engineers, chemical engineers, material engineers, product development engineers, research engineers, process operators, control engineers, process specialists, research scientist and process technologists.
