Abstract:

Mixing intensity often drives rate processes that are critical to achieve important product properties. People say they need “good mixing” in their process, yet often scientists and engineers prefer to look at mixing as a “black box.”  Unfortunately, that approach can lead to unpleasant surprises on scale-up, especially with multiphase and/or reactive systems.

In this talk I will share some systems from the literature and from my experience where the reaction selectivity is driven by the mixing intensity.  We will look at a simple experimental protocol which can show when mixing matters and identify the critical mixing environment early in process development.   We will also consider some examples where this protocol was applied to other competitive rate systems (like precipitation and crystallization) to enable successful scaling.  

Biography:

Aaron Sarafinas is a recognized expert in process development and mixing technology.  He left Dow/Rohm and Haas after almost 36 years of being the bridge between the R&D lab and production units for many different business areas on a wide variety of processes.  He formed Sarafinas Process & Mixing Consulting LLC in June 2018 so clients can achieve faster process development, scaling, and troubleshooting while leveraging advantaged mixing technology.
