Course: Technical Applications of Particle Technology (Lecture)

Lecturer:

Werner Sitzmann

Language:

German

Period:

Winter Semester

Content:

Unit operations like mixing, separation, agglomeration and size reduction are discussed concerning their technical applicability from the perspective of the practician. Machines and apparatuses are presented, their designs and modes of action are explained and their application in production processes for chemicals, food and feed and in recycling processes are illustrated.
