Evaporation and Evaporators-Part 1

  July 18, 2011  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
August 16, 2011 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
Engineers, plant personnel, scientists and operators, who are in the following industries and involved with evaporation, will benefit from this course.

  • Chemical and petrochemical processes 
  • Biochemical and agrichemical processes 
  • Pharmaceutical processes
  • Specialty chemical processes 
  • Food & dairy processes 
  • Pulp & paper processes

Typical job titles of those who should attend include:process chemist and biochemist, project engineer, process engineer, mechanical engineer, pilot plant engineer, chemical engineer, research engineer, pulp & paper engineer, maintenance personnel, food scientists and agricultural engineers.

Evaporation is a highly energy-efficient way of removing water or other liquids in a process. Evaporation is used for reducing product volume and the removal of water. It is the major process for the concentrate production and is very useful in dairy, food, chemicals and pharmaceuticals production for that purpose.

This 90-minute accredited training is an introduction to evaporation and evaporators for engineers and scientists who are interested or need to know more about this important area.

Major topics covered include: Evaporation, Evaporator Types, Applications and the Performance of Tubular Evaporators.

The course will provide an engineering basis for understanding of evaporation, energy utilization, steam economy, as well as the design of evaporators including: forced and natural circulation, long tubes, rising and falling film and specialty designs of evaporators. Additional key areas to be covered include: performance of tubular evaporators, capacity, steam economy, and heat transfer. This training will include opportunities for learning assessment.

Question and Answer Session

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

Gary B. Tatterson is a recognized leader in the area of multiphase processing in the process industries. He brings to this program over 39 years in the area. As a consultant he has worked on mixing 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.

Gary Tatterson has written extensively in the area of multiphase processing and the application the theories of fluid mechanics to such work. He has over 41 refereed publications and four texts: The Business of Scaleup, Process Scaleup and Design, Scaleup and Design of Industrial Mixing Processes, and Fluid Mixing and Gas Dispersion in Agitated Tanks.

The first three books are general "self-help" texts for industry on process scaleup. The last is a fundamental text on mixing and gas dispersion operations. Together they provide the novice with the knowledge necessary to design and scaleup multiphase processes such as evaporation.

Presently Gary is a full professor of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University (NC A&T SU) where he teaches full time. His scaleup and two plant design courses at NC A&T SU follow a philosophy of fundamental and practical understanding that is important to the proper operation of multiphase processes.
