Spray Drying and Atomisation of Formulations @ University of Leeds
Mar 31 – Apr 2 all-day

What will I learn?
On completion of this course you’ll be able to:

  • apply an understanding of how fluid properties, rheology and atomisation performance can have an influence on spray drying
  • manipulate drying parameters to influence product microstructure, materials properties and quality parameters
  • appreciate the hazards involved in spray drying and how to ensure safe operation
  • recognise how spray drying processes can be scaled up and appreciate the possible pitfalls on scaling up
  • understand how spray drying principles can be applied to the manufacture of real industrial formulated products for economic and better preforming processes as well as improved product performance and quality
  • discuss how challenges are tackled across different industries
  • choose and design appropriate equipment such as atomisers and towers for laboratory, pilot and production-scale spray-drying.

How will I benefit?
You’ll benefit from academic and industrial presentations, demonstrations, theory and real industrial case studies.

Fluid Bed Processing @ University of Leeds
May 11 – May 13 all-day

Fluidised beds are widely used in industry due to their characteristic fluid like properties of good mixing and heat transfer. Applications of fluid beds range from combustion in power stations, catalytic reactors to the engineering of particles via methods such as low density agglomeration and encapsulation.

This new course focuses on the use of fluid beds in particle engineering area and covers:

  • the basic principles behind fluidisation
  • the importance of particle properties
  • the impact of bed design on the structure and optimal operation of fluid beds, both batch and continuous.

The course is grounded in practical experience gained across numerous industrial sectors by a range of speakers from academia, equipment manufacturers and end users. The scientific principles of fluid bed operation will be reinforced by a number of practical demonstrations which show the theory in practice.
