Course description

View Course Outline

This intensive course, developed by experts in the field, covers mixing fundamentals and their application to a variety of commercial operations, taking into account the latest developments in research and practice.

The lectures delve into the basics of turbulence, emulsions, rheology, and interfacial phenomena. From there, the course examines mixing processes for both single-phase systems of low and high viscosity, as well as systems with complex rheology, including solid/liquid, gas/liquid, and liquid/liquid systems (including interfacial phenomena).

The course also covers the design and performance of mixing equipment, along with scale-up issues. Attendees will gain insight into real-world examples of mixing and scale-up in various industries, including food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. In addition to the lectures, participants will have opportunities to discuss problems and engage in question-and-answer sessions.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the goals and objectives of mixing processes in various industries
  • Describe the various fluid characteristics – Newtonian and Non-Newtonian based on their rheological characteristics
  • Design proper methods of batching and metering systems, to achieve top manufacturing performance and operational efficiencies
  • Explain the various types of blending technologies for liquid-liquid, liquid-powders, solids-solids, liquid-gas, and powder-powder applications
  • Select the most optimal mixing solution for the process application
  • Identify and troubleshoot operational problems in mixing processes
  • Scale-up from labs and pilot plant settings to the production floor
  • Create plans for scale-up from labs and pilot plant settings to the commercial production floor
  • Evaluate the compatibility between existing mixing systems and new processes and products

You will be redirected to our secure system.

This training is designed for individuals in a variety of process industries such as Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic, Biological, Food and Specialty Chemicals. In addition, those employed in the Oil, Petrochemical, Mineral, Environmental, Polymer and Paper industries where mixing or formulation (often of complex materials) is undertaken in stirred vessels or other mixing equipment will likewise find the training very worthwhile.

These professionals include, but are not limited to:

  • Chemist
  • Engineers
  • Pharmacists
  • Formulation Scientist
  • Biologist
  • Material Scientist

The course will benefit those concerned with scale-up, design, development, research or production and is ideal for those new to this field or for those who are experiencing problems with existing development or production activities.
