  January 07, 2020  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Edison, NJ or Virtually
April 27, 2020

Who Should Attend?
This one-day accredited course is for professionals in the chemical, biotechnology, agricultural sprays, food, pulp and paper, combustion and medical areas. Those involved with spray dependent processes, including chemical reactors, coatings, spray drying, powder metallurgy, evaporative cooling, specialty chemicals, combustion and medical sprays will benefit including:
  • Biotechnologists
  • Food Technologists
  • Professionals involved with Coating and Agricultural applications
  • Professionals involved with cooling, humidification and other air/water
  • Professionals involved with Spray Drying in various industries

Managers and supervisors of the above listed individuals would also benefit from this training by becoming acquainted with, and better understanding, the challenges involved with this technology.

Course Description
Atomization is an important process used in many industries, including chemical, petrochemical, biochemical, medical, food, paper, combustion, fuels, and agriculture. This one-day accredited training 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.
