PLUG FLOW CRYSTALLIZER


Narrow Crystal Size Distribution

Inside a Plug Flow Crystallizer (PFC), a shaft with uniquely arranged blades rotates within a shell. The product flows through in a nearly plug flow manner under uniform and gentle agitation. Multiple heating /cooling sections provide controlled temperature gradients and good control on primary nucleation. Gentle agitation minimizes secondary nucleation. Plug flow conditions provide uniform residence time, promoting narrow Crystal Size Distribution (CSD), which is important for improved purity and flowability.
