This presentation reviews the application of in situ process analytical technologies (PAT) to optimize and control the flocculation process. Several case studies are discussed including:
- Biotech cell and cell debris separations
- Pulp and paper yield, retention, and product quality
- Waste water settling rates in the mining industry
By implementing in situ particle characterization technologies (ParticleTrack with FBRM technology and PVM), organizations can increase separation throughput and product quality and reduce toxicity levels (use less chemicals).
Eric Dycus is a Ph.D. Chemical Engineer dedicated to the use of inline particle characterization technologies (including ParticleTrack with FBRM technology and PVM) for the development, scale-up and manufacturing of processes. As a result, (bio) pharma, chemical and food companies bring products to market faster, at lower costs and with higher quality. Eric is currently a Technology & Applications Specialist at METTLER TOLEDO.
