Advances For Seeding A Crystallization Process

Seeding has become one of the most critical steps in optimizing crystallization behavior, process efficiency, and product quality. Inconsistent filtration rates, drying times, yields, bulk density, flow properties, and particle size distributions can often be traced back to inconsistent seeding and nucleation. Many parameters must be taken into consideration when designing a seeding strategy such as seed size, seed loading (mass) and seed addition temperature. These parameters are generally optimized based on process kinetics and the desired final particle properties and must remain consistent during scale-up and technology transfer. Continue reading
