Compare Lab Scale Mixing with Full Scale Process Vessel Performance
This webinar discusses the importance of mixing and compares lab mixing and large scale mixing. The presentation features excerpts from two short courses given by Reinaldo Machado entitled Fundamentals of Scale-up and iControl Mixing Guidelines.

Process objectives are critical for successful manufacturing of a product. If the mixing scale-up fails the required yield, quality, or physical properties of the product and the costs of manufacturing may be significantly increased. Failure to provide the necessary mixing may result in severe manufacturing problems on scale-up, ranging from costly corrections in the plant to complete failure of a process. The costs associated with these problems are far greater than the cost of adequately evaluating and solving the mixing issues during process development. Conversely, the economic potential of improved mixing performance is substantial. Therefore, at the heart of any scale-up chemical process, there has to be a fundamental understanding of how the mixing processes in a lab reactor compares to the mixing performance of a full scale process vessel which is targeted to receive the lab developed process.
