Live One Day Training - Mixing In Stirred Tanks - Dublin, Ireland Oct 10, 2017
The course format combines lectures, demonstrations, and problem-solving sessions, helping you to classify good/bad mixing.Predict a priori various mixing parameters using correlations and CFD models.Learn technical approaches for scale-up, trouble shooting and mixing process optimization.
Date: October 10, 2017
Location: New Horizons Ireland| Strand House | 24 Strand Street Great, Dublin, Ireland
Application Areas: Process Industry, Oil, Gas & Petrochemical, Biomedical & Pharmaceutical, General CFD
Special Fields: Reactive Flows, Non-Newtonian Flows, Multiphase Flows, Optimization, Numerical Methods
Softwares: MixIT
Type of Event: Workshop, National

The course will review principles of mixing in stirred 
tanks, provide recommendations for process design and 
scale-up, plus enable participants to apply these 
principles and recommendations to their mixing 
processes/problems. Additionally the course will explain 
how  “MixIT – an enterprise software to predict stirred 
tank performance” can help facilitate knowledge 
management, collaboration and use of mixing science 
within a global organization to accelerate reactor 
design, process scale up, process optimization and 
troubleshooting associated with stirred tanks.

The course take-away's are:
- Learn to analyze your process and understand the 
operating conditions that govern the process output and 
product quality

- Scale-up rules that are applicable for different types 
of processes

- Understand the limits of conventional design rules

- CFD analysis of stirred tank reactors

- Hands-on experience with enterprise mixing tool MixIT
