Crystallization Technology Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Crystallization Technology Handbook
Second Edition
edited by A. Mersmann

This handbook seeks to facilitate the selection, design and operation of large-scale industrial crystallizers that process crystals with the proper size distribution, shape and purity sought - including cooling, evaporation, drowning-out reaction, melt, and related crystallization techniques.

This new Second Edition offers new results on direct-contact cooling crystallization. It lists the properties of over 170 organic and inorganic crystallization systems.

  • Explains the basic design procedures for both laboratory and industrial crystallizers
  • Delineates optimal duperesaturation
  • Describes in detail cooling, evaporative, drowning-out, and reaction crystallization
  • Discusses precipitation, mixing, and product quality
  • Highlights the economics of the entire crystallization process
  • Stresses production values such as size distribution, coefficient of variation, and crystal shape and purity
  • Considers the problem of encrustation
  • Addressses new process developments, including high-pressure crystallization and freezing
  • And much more!
