Final Remarks

To summarize, it can be said that the design of a good evaporative or cooling crystallization process is based on heat, mass and population balances, kinetic processes of nucleation, growth and agglomeration of the particles, as well as on the hydrodynamics that exist in the crystallizer of a given geometry and scale. However, as the prevailing process conditions are not evenly distributed in industrial crystallizers, local descriptions of the crystallization phenomena are needed to calculate the local variations in the process conditions, their effect on the process performance and to predict their dependence of the scale and geometry of the crystallizer. It has been shown that by taking all these balances and processes into account in a compartmental modelling tool, the efficiency of the separation process as well as the quality of the crystalline product and the process performance can be properly predicted.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
