AIChE 2013 Spring Meeting and 9th Global Congress on Process Safety

I would like to thank the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and William Hollar (Sabic) for inviting METTLER TOLEDO to present a paper at AIChE Spring 2013 Session in San Antonio last week. The session –  New Approaches in Chemical Manufacturing Operations – was a prototype session focusing on changes in unit operations, instrumentation and system design/operation in response to new design needs for chemical manufacturing plants in the 21st century.

My paper – In-Process Particle and Droplet Characterization for Process Design and Optimization in Manufacturing Operations – was focused on improving the filtration step utilizing real time in situ ParticleTrack and PVM technologies. Three case studies I discussed were related to:

Keeping in line with the session theme, these case studies demonstrated that integrating ParticleTrack and PVM technologies and instrumentation in chemical plants helps improve existing unit operations and scale-up efforts.
