Mixing Technology: Fundamentals and Applications

  November 01, 2018  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Online Live
January 23, 2019 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend?
This course is for individuals in process industries such as oil, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, cosmetic, mineral, environmental, polymer, biological, food and paper where mixing or formulation (often of complex materials) is undertaken in stirred vessels or other mixing equipment. These professionals include, but are not limited to:
  • Chemists
  • Engineers
  • Pharmacists
  • Formulation scientists
  • Biologists
  • Material scientists

The course will benefit those concerned with scale-up, design, development, research or production.

Course Description
Experts in the field have developed this 90-minute training which presents mixing fundamentals and their application to a selection of commercial operations, taking into account the most recent developments in research and practice. The lectures will cover the basics of turbulence, emulsions, rheology and interfacial phenomena. Building on these basic concepts, mixing processes will be analyzed for single phase systems of low and high viscosity and complex rheology. Solid/liquid, gas/liquid and liquid/liquid systems (including interfacial phenomena) will be analyzed. Design and performance of mixing equipment will be developed and scale-up issues addressed.

Examples will be presented involving mixing and scale-up in various industries such as food, beverages, pharma, chemical, . Sessions will be supplemented by discussion of problems presented by participants and by question and answer sessions.
