About project

The term heterogeneous system refers to systems in which two or more phases are involved in the process. Different combinations of those phases are possible and can be found in chemical, pharmaceutical, food and other closely related industries.

Research activities

Two heterogeneous processes are to be investigated simultaneously, one that includes and one that excludes a chemical reaction (a. Batch cooling crystallization; b. Ion exchange of heavy metals). The base intention of the proposed project is to find a link between process parameters, hydrodynamic conditions in agitated batch reactor, process kinetics and characteristics of the final product (that is, final process result).
