Abstract

A systematic study for obtaining the optimal temperature profile in a continuous plug flow crystallizer (PFC) is presented. The PFC consists of multiple segments where the temperature of the each segment can be controlled individually. An optimization problem is formulated for a target crystal size distribution (CSD) (without fines) with the temperature of the PFC segments as decision variables. It is ...
