Dynamic Behavior of the Isothermal Well-Stirred Crystallizer with Classified Outlet

Abstract

Industrial crystallization, though one of the oldest chemical engineering unit operations, still remains one of the last to yield to quantitative analysis and is one of the most difficult to operate continuously in a steady state manner. One problem which makes the control of crystallizers difficult is their sensitivity to small upsets and their tendency toward unstable behavior characterized by low frequency cyclic fluctuations of the particle size (6, 8, 11).
