This talk covers the fundamentals of crystallisation and demonstrates how crystallization kinetics interacted with fluid dynamics. Roles of mixing in different crystallisation processes (such as cooling, precipitation and anti-solvent etc) are expounded. Mixing not only affects on crystal product properties such as particle size distribution and purity but also have great influence on crystallisation operations and the downstream processes. The challenges in terms of design, control and scale-up of different crystallisers are also discussed.
