Mixing is one of the least studied areas of scaleup during chemical process development. Mixing is one of the highest contributing factors for inadequate yield, quality, or physical properties of the product. This results in increased development or production costs. We provide you with best practices to solve mixing issues including our CFD modeling.
Estimating or measuring the heat of reaction allows the chemical engineer to estimate safe dosing rates and times, predict maximum temperature rises, and size heat transfer equipment to achieve desired yield, selectivity, and purity within safe operating parameters.
