Atomization and Spray Technology: Focus on Spray Drying

Next class: October 22, 2014 in Madison, WI


University of Wisconsin - College of Engineering  - Department of Engineering Professional Development

Atomization and Spray Technology: Focus on Spray Drying is a one day short course designed to increase your understating of how atomizers work and how to improve systems.

• Awareness of the various types of nozzles available
• Atomizer performance and selection

Atomization is an important process used in many industries, including the chemical, biochemical, food and dairy, pharmaceutical, paper, combustion, and agricultural industries. Atomization and Spray Technology is an introductory course for engineers, scientists, and technicians. It provides a basic understanding of the atomization process, design, and applications.

You will examine:
• Atomization methods
• Atomizer design
• Droplet size distribution
• Atomizer performance
• Spray characteristics
• Proper atomizer or nozzle selection
