Scale-Up: What Goes Wrong? Short Course
Date: 29 April - 30 April 2024
Location: Online Platform
Tutors: Dr John Studley
This is an online short course and will look at the reasons why reactions don’t always scale-up as expected, using real-life examples from industry. The course will be in two sections of 60-90 minutes held over two consecutive days as follow:
Monday 29th April | 2.30pm – 4.45pm BST
Tuesday 30th April | 2.30pm – 5.00pm BST
This short course will look at the reasons why reactions don’t always scale-up as expected, using real-life examples from industry. Some theory on mixing and related topics (such as heat transfer) will be covered along with useful tips on which types of reactions are likely to cause problems.
The use of simple laboratory scale experiments to anticipate scale-up problems will be included. Case studies will be used to show how companies have avoided or corrected scale-up problems.
When you register you will be sent links to join the on-line sessions.
- Live interactive training sessions based over 3 afternoons (BST time) using an online webinar platform, details on how to access the course will be shared before the event.
- E Reader version of the manual please note the E Reader is not printable or downloadable due to copyright (professionally printed versions of the manual are available but at an additional cost to cover postage)
- Course certificate
** Please note sessions are not recorded, nor shared after the course.
Who Should Attend
Process development chemists and chemical engineers
Discovery chemists who would like a window in to the world or process development
Anyone involved in scaling up chemical processes.
This short course will include topics on:
- An introduction to the scale-up of chemical processe
- What are the typical problems we encounter?
- Mixing and mass transfer issues
- Heat transfer and safety
- General things to consider when you scale-up reactions
- Case studies and recommendations
Great as a refreshed for people working in Industry to recall what might go wrong during sale up processes
It is highly relevant to anyone working at scale or who wants to scale up a process; highlighting the most likely pitfalls and with plenty of past examples and their respective solutions.
