Abstract

The present work concerns itself with the study of the effects of Growth Rate Dispersion (GRD) in industrial crystallizers. The GRD in crystallizers is described by a model similar to the one describes axial dispersion in near plug flow reactors. From it differential and cumulative equations are developed for crystal population, crystal length, crystal area, and crystal mass. The model results have been compared with the available experimental data of sucrose crystallizer.
