This 1-day course is designed to teach key technical concepts and key philosophy behind successful scale-up of chemical processes and equipment. The participants will learn not only theories but also example calculations so that they can adapt the scale-up knowledge to their own projects. The course will also discuss about common mistakes in scale-up, which will help them avoid making the same mistakes and increase the chances of being successful in scale-up.
This course addresses technical issues, associated with transforming a chemical process, from small scale (e.g. laboratory) to commercial operation. The teaching approach is methodology-oriented. It is designed to teach key technical concepts, key success factors, and methods to develop scale-up correlations and modeling to ensure successful scale-up and scale-down of chemical processes and equipment.
