Course — Applied Mixing Technology for Process Development: Scaling Down to Scale Up
03 Oct 2023 - 06 Oct 2023 • Online Platform, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
Scientific Update Ltd.
Abstract:
Use of the proper mixing technology is often essential for successful process results. This online course considers how we can choose appropriate mixing conditions for laboratory, pilot, and commercial scale units to ensure technical success. The course begins by rooting us in some essential basics of mixing technology. With those fundamentals, we then progress through different mixing applications in increasing levels of complexity: single-phase (blending and heat transfer), multiple phase (solid-liquid, immiscible liquid, gas-liquid, and 3-phase), and mixing in competitive rate processes (reactions and crystallizations). Throughout, we look at scale-up and scale-down by using examples from industrial processes which have a variety of mixing requirements. We will discuss how to design and execute practical experiments at the small scale which can identify mixing sensitivities in a process that could be an issue on scale-up. Though primarily focusing on operations in stirred tanks, we will also discuss mixing applications in flow systems like static mixers.

Course — Chemical and Process Safety for Development Chemists
09 Oct 2023 - 17 Oct 2023 • Online Platform, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
Scientific Update Ltd.
Abstract:
In this course, the basics of chemical process safety are explained, always starting from the underlying chemistry. A lot of emphasis will be put on heat and gas evolution, how they affect the inherent process safety and how they can be measured in the lab. Basic scale-up calculations for both gas and heat evolution will be explained using examples and exercises. Guidelines will be given to prevent possible issues with heat transfer at larger scale. The importance of stability data of chemicals, reaction mixtures and products will be explained, together with different tools to determine them experimentally. Background will be provided to understand and interpret the results of reaction calorimetry and thermal stability experiments. Safety aspects of upstream or downstream processes like storage and waste streams will be discussed. The safety benefits of flow chemistry will be explained, and the specific safety evaluation needed for such flow processes will be explored as well.

Course — Design, Development and Scale-Up of Safe Chemical Processes and Operations
22 Apr 2024 - 26 Apr 2024 • Online Platform, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
Scientific Update Ltd.
Abstract:
This seminar is designed to enhance the awareness of chemists and engineers regarding hazard issues. Utilising the expertise of the chemists and chemical engineers at DEKRA and Scientific Update, it will consider hazard control of new chemical processes throughout their development cycle: from early development through to full-scale production. Hazards can often be eliminated by appropriate choice of reagent or synthetic route at the R&D stage. Where this is not possible, techniques exist to quantify the hazards so that robust engineering solutions can he applied in production.

Abstract:
This course is designed for those with limited or no pilot plant or scale-up experience, provides a comprehensive overview of the most common problems experienced during the scale up of laboratory batch processes, and ways to avoid or mitigate them. The difference between laboratory scale techniques and how the major unit operations are carried out in the pilot plant is a key focus of the course. Thus, along the way attendees will examine the many issues associated with raw material handling, conducting synthetic reactions, reaction workup, product crystallization, isolation and drying at the pilot plant or commercial scale.
