Confronting Issues in Industrial Crystallization

By Brooke Albin and Charles Moyers, MATRIC |

Reliable information about industrial crystallization can be difficult to find and to apply to new situations. The work process outlined here will help engineers approach crystallization challenges Project and plant engineers frequently face issues with crystallization processes, but often possess little prior experience to address them. In probing for answers, engineers often discover that reliable prediction of equipment capacities from machine geometry and physical properties of liquids and solids is improbable, and that most of the literature describing crystallization and separation equipment is confusing. They are also likely to find that feasibility and scaleup correlations are based primarily on empirical know-how developed by crystallization equipment users and manufacturers. Given that, how should engineers proceed toward obtaining a reliable and economic solution to their current cystallization problem? Using the work process outlined in this article can help guide engineers in approaching crystallization process problems. This includes developing a strong understanding of the system’s solubility data, conducting laboratory tests to gain hands-on experience with a material and setting up a pilot-scale system.
