Addressing Scale Up, Mixing and Other Challenges in the Pharma, Food, Biotech & Chemical Process Industries
Introducing Admixtus: A new mixing-specific tool used to accelerate the process of CFD-based mixing simulations.
The specialty chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry and food industry face specific challenges in multiphase flows. Especially when suspension of solids, flow of slurries or highly viscous/viscoelastic materials are concerned. Many of the design methods are based on correlations which need to be extrapolated. Scale-up of such systems is even more challenging due to the limited applicability of previous generation methods.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and particle modeling with Discrete Element Method (DEM) have been identified as key enabling technologies in finding solutions from first principles, to many of the challenges that surround scale-up; capable of reducing operating costs across manufacturing and quality divisions.
Who Should Attend?
- Process engineers, scale-up engineers or a manager who wants to improve accuracy of current process design & development methods, increase robustness and confidence in scale up, you will find this session helpful in strategizing your workflows.
- CFD specialists who want to learn about the strength of STAR-CCM+® meshing and multiphase flow simulation capabilities, workflow and physics models for some of the most challenging problems in the industry.
