Process Intensification Through High Shear Mixing

  • 15 March 2023
  • 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm
  • International House & Virtual IAS

IAS Residential Fellow Dr Vikash Vashisth delivers a seminar on his research - 

Numerous high value, high performance novel products (pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, coatings, paints and inks … ) requires achieving a fine dispersion in the form of a nano-emulsion or a nanoparticulate dispersion during their manufacture.  This is typically achieved through high shear mixing, i.e. intensified processing, to overcome the resisting forces that hold an agglomerate or a droplet together.

A detailed study of the flow field generated provides highly useful information for process design and scale-up as often the process devices used at different scales of operation are different. This talk is based on a study that made use of two types of process devices: batch rotor-stators and ultrasonicator. Both experimental findings and results from numerical simulations will be shared along with recommendations. The talk will also include an example case study from another project and future plans

This event is hybrid format, please use the required booking button at the bottom of the page for either in-person or online.
(Please note that in-person spaces are limited and booking is required, so we can manage numbers for catering and also the space inside International House)

By booking a place at this event, attendees agree to behave in a respectful manner such that everyone feels comfortable contributing as they wish. The IAS reserves the right to eject anyone who does not abide by this policy.

IAS seminars are typically recorded, minus any Q&A sessions at the end, again to encourage contributions. The recordings are then uploaded to our website on a Fellows bio page and/or Programme page, along with our IAS YouTube Channel. If you are not able to attend a seminar live, please do still register as we will email everyone who registered to let them know once the recordings are made available.
