Atomization, Sprays and Atomizers

  December 16, 2010  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, New Brunswick, NJ
April 14-15, 2011

Who Should Attend
This course is for professionals in the chemical, biotechnology, agricultural sprays, food, pulp and paper, combustion and medical areas. Those involved with spraydependent processes, including chemical reactors, coatings, spray drying, powder metallurgy, evaporative cooling, specialty chemicals, combustion and medical sprays will benefit including:

  • Biotechnologists 
  • Coating Engineers
  • Food Technologists 
  • Combustion Engineers
  • Agricultural Engineers

Atomization is an important process used in many industries, including chemical, petrochemical, biochemical, medical, food, paper, combustion, fuels, and agriculture. This course provides an introduction to atomization for engineers, scientists and technologists who are interested in or need to know more about atomization, atomizer design, atomizer specifications and selection for various applications.

Key areas to be covered include the various atomization methods, atomizer design, factors affecting operation, flow in atomizers, drop size, spray angle and other spray characteristics, atomizer performance criteria, atomizer maintenance and drop size distributions. Proper atomizer selection will be emphasized. Worked problems on flow number for nozzles and the air-to-liquid ratio for two fluid atomizers will be presented in class. Calculations for spray dryers will also be reviewed.

The course will follow a lecture/discussion/video presentation format. Demonstrations of the use of the atomization equipment and maintenance procedures will be shown.

Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. Gary B. Tatterson; Professor, Chemical Engineering, North Carolina A&T State University

Dr. Gary B. Tatterson is a recognized leader in the areas of process scale-up, mixing and process design for industry. He brings to this program fourteen years of teaching a highly successful scale-up course in the US and Europe as well as thirtytwo years of research and industrial experience in mixing, multiphase processing, plant design and scale-up. As a consultant, he has worked on design problems for numerous companies, including Mead Paper Co., Wilson Great Batch, Akzo Coatings America, B.J. Services, Raytheon, Texaco, E.I. du Pont, Rohm & Haas and Colgate.

Dr. Tatterson has written extensively in the area of scale-up, mixing and contacting. With over thirty-eight publications in mixing and contacting, Dr. Tatterson emphasizes a fundamental and practical approach to scale--up issues. He has written three texts:


The latter two texts form the basis for this course. Currently, Dr. Tatterson is developing a text in the general area of unit operations in chemical engineering, which will cover areas such as atomization, filtration, flotation, size reduction, paste and powder processing.

Dr. Tatterson is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the North Carolina A&T State University, where he teaches thermal sciences, plant design, solids handling, food processing, mixing and process scale-up courses. His courses follow the philosophy of fundamental and practical understanding that is basic to good processing and engineering practice.
