Particle Engineering day 2019

Particle Engineering day 2019

On Tuesday May 21, 2019 we will organize in close collaboration with a number of partner companies the Particle Engineering day covering different themes associated with making of powders and particles out of liquid phase. Meanwhile contributions from Kreber B.V., TUDelft Product & Process Engineering, Nouryon, IP&D experts, TUDelft Process & Energy, Alcami, Technobis, GEA Process Technology, Delft Solids Solutions, and Batenco have been confirmed.

Lectures delivered during this seminar will be devoted to e.g.

  • Why from liquid phase to solid matter?
  • The pros and cons of prilling
  • Ins and outs of crystallization
  • Spray drying
  • Crystallization in salt research
  • Applications of spray drying in dairy research
  • Practical implementation of particle engineering methods in industry
  • Importance of crystallization in pharmaceutical research

The seminar offers an interactive program designed for anyone who is working in the field of powder and particle engineering, processing, formulation, drying, particle performance, related unit operations. As we have scheduled overview lectures that are applicable to all industries ranging from food, feed, to chemicals and besides that special attention has been given to pharmaceutical and dairy research, this seminar is of interest to a very broad audience. The main goal of this event is sharing knowledge on this theme. The seminar ends with a networking event in the hotel bar.
