The AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) Process Development Symposium will discuss technical and non-technical factors effecting costs and efficiencies when designing process development processes. Experts from the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, electronics, oil and gas and specialty chemicals businesses will share ideas and proven methodologies for early recognition of process issues.
The industry standard RC1 calorimeter for process safety studies at lab scale has been enhanced with the latest real time calorimetry (RTCal™) and software innovations (iC Safety™) to perform process safety and scale-up studies in an efficient and rapid way. As a result the RC1 reactor can be operated as a plant reactor, allowing for real life simulation of dosing times at plant scale and prediction of the thermal behavior and the quality and yield of the process in the plant vessel. The mixing guidelines provide a wealth of information on how to operate the lab reactor to simulate plant mixing and iC Safety™ - automatically calculates all related process safety values such as adiabatic temperature rise, MTSR , etc. needed for the thermal hazard assessment of the process
Webinar Spotlight – Ray Machado presents: The Importance of Mixing: How to Compare Lab Scale Mixing with Full Scale Process Vessel Performance
At the center of any scale-up chemical process, there has to be an understanding of how the mixing processes in a lab reactor compares to the mixing performance of a full scale process vessel.
