Course description

View Course Outline

This training program, developed by industry experts, covers the fundamentals of mixing and their practical applications in various commercial operations. The lectures will provide a comprehensive understanding of turbulence, emulsions, rheology, and interfacial phenomena, taking into account the latest research and industry practices. The course will analyze mixing processes for single-phase systems with low and high viscosity, as well as complex rheology, in addition to examining solid/liquid, gas/liquid, and liquid/liquid systems (including interfacial phenomena).

Participants will gain insight into the design and performance of mixing equipment, as well as scale-up issues. This training will provide numerous examples of mixing and scale-up in different industries, including food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. The sessions will include interactive discussions of participant-provided problems, as well as question-and-answer sessions to enhance understanding.

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, liquid-gas 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

You will be redirected to our secure system.

This course is for individuals in process industries such as oil, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, cosmetic, mineral, environmental, polymer, biological, food and paper where mixing or formulation (often of complex materials) is undertaken in stirred vessels or other mixing equipment.

These professionals include, but are not limited to:

  • Chemists
  • Engineers
  • Pharmacists
  • Formulation Scientists
  • Biologists
  • Material Scientists

The course will benefit those concerned with scale-up, design, development, research, or production.
