Atomization and Spray Technology with a focus on Spray Drying

Atomization and Spray Technology: Focus on Spray Drying is a one-day short course designed to increase your understanding of how atomizers work and how to improve systems. 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. Atomization is an important process used in many industries, including the chemical, biochemical, food and dairy, pharmaceutical, paper, combustion, and agricultural industries. You will learn about

  1. Atomization methods
  2. Atomizer design
  3. Drop size distribution and average drop diameter
  4. Spray characteristics
  5. Proper atomizer or nozzle selection
  6. Atomizer performance impact on dryer performance

Chemical Processing: Essentials for the Non-Chemical Engineer

This course will provide an understanding of the basic concepts of chemical engineering applied in the manufacturing of chemicals, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. An overview of the types of equipment used in chemical processes provides a practical grounding of the concepts. You will learn about

  1. Basics of material and energy balances
  2. Fluid flow and hardware, including pumps and valves
  3. Chemical reactivity and basic reactor concepts
  4. Process separations including distillation and extraction
  5. Heat transfer methods and hardware
  6. Process safety


We construct training material for a specific audience. In person training is complemented by written material.

Technical training poses unique issues to obtain and maintain engagement of the students during class period. We create short video clips to enhance the classroom experience.
