Abstract

Mathematical models can be used to analyse and predict the dynamic behaviour of the crystal size distribution (CSD) in mixed suspension crystallizers of several configurations. In the last ten years much attention has been given to the analysis of absolute stability limits of crystallizer models. These limits can be obtained from the characteristic equation, which is derived from the normalized and linearized dynamic equations of the model. The limits of the stability regions are presented as critical values of the nucleation/growth rate exponent i = d(log B°)/d(log G) versus the dimensionless parameters of the used model.
