Industrial Liquid Mixing

What will I learn?
This newly developed two-day course will outline the fundamentals and technologies of liquid mixing and give you a hands-on opportunity to experiment and investigate different mixer types. The course will be delivered by academic and industrial experts in their field of contribution and will include case studies and laboratory experimental sessions. 

You’ll develop an understanding of the:

  • principles of the mixing of liquids and liquid-liquid/gas/solid systems
  • selection and duties of mixer technology
  • effective scale-up of mixer size – from laboratory to plant.

You’ll also gain practical experience of operating mixers.

How will I benefit?
On completion of the course you’ll have a deeper understanding of mixing phenomena coupled with practical knowledge and methodologies to help specify equipment and troubleshoot mixing processes.

Day 1

  • What is mixing?
  • Liquid mixing
  • Liquid exercise
  • Experimental session
  • Industrial case studies.

Day 2

  • Complex liquid systems
  • Liquid – Solid mixing
  • Drawing it together – the duties of your mixer, scale-up/scale-down.

The 2016 course programme and leaflet will be available approximately 3 months prior to the course. However, you can view and download the 2015 course details for further information by clicking the course leaflet and course programme link. 

This course is relevant to you if you work in an industry where mixing plays an important role in physical and chemical transformations of material. A key aim of the course is to shorten the translation of material processing at one scale (e.g. laboratory) to another (e.g. plant); as such it will be relevant if you’re working on this spectrum of activities.
It will be of particular interest if you’re an engineer with responsibility for equipment specification, operation and troubleshooting of if you’re a development chemist designing materials that will be produced at scale.
