What Next After Crystallization?

A Short Course on An Introduction to Powder Technology

Date: 06 March - 07 March 2023

Location: Online Platform

Tutors: Mr Robert Peeling

               

This short, on-line course aims to give scientists and technologists a practical appreciation of the real-world problems to be addressed and the underlying principles that need to be understood to handle powders and other particulate materials successfully during chemical and physical processing.  The course will be divided up into two sessions, as follows:

Monday March 6 | 2.00pm – 4.30pm GMT
Tuesday March 7 | 2.00pm – 4.30pm GMT

The course will start with ways of characterising the material and derived properties of a powder and how these relate to likely behaviour during processing. It will then move on to apply an understanding of how forces make particles move to conveying, metering, and controlling the flow of powders. Whole system thinking will be applied to consider both the impacts of the overall set of changes occurring to the particles during processing and the impact of the surrounding environment. Finally, some aspects of the influence of surface chemistry on processability will be considered.

Course outline

Course Outline

  1. Powder characterisation and behaviour
    • Particle structures
    • Powder properties and behaviour
    • Particle size and shape characterisation
  2. Principles of particle handling
    • How particles move – force balances
    • Effects of shape and solids concentration
    • Fluidisation
  3. Making powders flow
    • Hopper design
    • Pneumatic, vacuum, and mechanical conveying
    • Controlling powder flow – types of feed systems
  4. Whole system considerations
    1. Environmental temperature and moisture impacts
  5. Surface chemistry

Who should attend

This short course will be particularly helpful for people who have attended Understanding Polymorphism and Crystallization Issues in the Pharmaceutical Industry and more generally to anyone who wants to know more about particle processing and handling technology once a particle has been synthesised or crystallized from solution. After the course, delegates should be better equipped to consider scale-up and technology transfer risks where particles handling is involved through understanding the nature and behaviour of real particles.
