Minute Clinic: From Lab Scale To Plant Scale

By Traci Purdum, Senior Digital Editor

In today’s Minute Clinic we learn about simulation and how it aids scale-up in the chemical processing industry. According to our expert -- Dr. Ravindra Aglave, director of chemical processing at CD-adapco a Siemens business -- you can imagine how the scaled-up system would behave based on expected outcomes from the process. This behavior is inherently tied to the physics governing the system. It is quite common to perform trial and error procedure to understand the behavior rather than trying to build relationships between the variables governing the system. Listen to this short podcast to learn more – and to hear how Aglave compares raising children with scale-up issues.
