Industrial crystallization is an important separation and purification step in the chemical, mining and food industries. Inconsistency in the particle size distribution is a common source of process variability. To overcome this process challenge, inline particle characterization is used to provide inline particle size, shape and count measurements at full process concentrations and in translucent or opaque slurries.

This White Paper demonstrates how inline particle technology is used to understand, optimize and control crystallization to improve product quality and yield. Companies like American Crystal Sugar Company, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) and Nestle have successfully applied these technologies to optimize product repeatability and develop the highest quality products.

Case studies include:

  • Crystallization of Food Ingredients (Lactose and Dextrose)
  • Bulk Chemicals (Lysine)
  • Inorganic Minerals (Lithium Carbonate)
