The GEA turbulence with draft tube and baffle crystallizer is the typical modern type of crystallizer in the industry. This is a typical model of mixing tank crystallizer. Draft tube is mounted inside, allowing crystals which are growing to be sent efficiently to the evaporation. In a continuous crystallization process employing an evaporative draft tube baffle (DTB) crystallizer apparatus to produce crystal product, the improvement which.

The batch vacuum crystallizer is particularly useful when drafr materials that tend to grow on the walls of continuous crystallization equipment. These wide variations in crystal size distribution are undesirable because there is loss of premium priced large crystals, introduction of non-uniformity in product size caused by segregation in storage piles and difficulties in screening.

The drawing shows the suspension enters the crystallization apparatus via line 27 to line 22A, the thickener overflow crystalllizer, which enters the crystallization vessel 1 close to the liquid level In a continuous crystallization process employing an evaporative draft tube baffle DTB crystallizer apparatus to produce crystal product comprising.

Ref legal event code: Effects of operating conditions on agglomeration and habit of paracetamol crystals in anti-solvent crystallization. Small, unwanted crystals, called fines, are removed from larger tuhe using gravitational settling and recycled through the crystallizer again, resulting in maximum crystal recovery and larger crystals.


Crystal size difficult to control. A typical large DTB crystallizer useful for this invention is about 50 ft.

Draft Tube Baffle (DTB) Crystallizer – Swenson Technology

The thickener is normally a cyclonic separator. Process for the crystal,izer of solid substances in a coarse granular form from solutions.

Scraped surface crystallizers such as the one shown below are used as low energy, low cost means of crystallization for small scale operations. Home Menu Videos Contributors License.

To achieve an effective process control it is important to control the retention time and the crystal mass, to obtain the optimum conditions in terms of crystal specific surface dratf the fastest possible growth. For superior control over particle size when excessive fine crystals are present, the Swenson draft tube baffle DTB crystallizer has been proven highly effective. The description and examples are written for crystallization of crystallzier sulfate; but the same crystalizer of apparatus may be used for crystallization of potassium chloride, potassium sulfate, sodium chloride and other crystalline materials.

This has been done for simplification. Continuous crystallizing tank and continuous evaporative crystallization process. Country of ref document: Description of Related Art.

The evaporated solvent is then condensed, cooled, and returned to the region of active crystallization.

DE Date of ref document: Flow is controlled by the flowmeter The feed slurry is first heated in a heat exchanger, then pumped to the main body of the crystallizer. ES Free format text: By means of the baffled zone, the operating slurry density within the crystallizer can be regulated at any desired value by controlling the slurry underflow rate and removing the remaining mother liquor from the baffle bzffle.


They are used primarly for the crystallization of melts. The suspension of crystal? Copyright Swenson Process Equipment, Inc.

Draft Tube Baffle Crystallizer – Swenson Technology

The percent crtstallizer crystals greater than Tyler 10 mesh are shown in Figure 3 for several successive shifts. A continuous crystallizer and a continuous evaporative crystallization process.

Fines leaving the baffle zone are sent to a following stage, settler, or heat exchanger in the case of an evaporative DTB crystallizer. This is difficult to understand because even if all of the ammonium sulfate formed by cooling the clear solution drart on the seed, the size should only grow to about that of a 16 mesh crystals 1.

When large evaporation rates are required, external heating must be provided.
