Powder Properties and Processing Course Offered

The Center for Professional Advancement will present Powders: Their Properties and Processing, October 18-20, 2010 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The course will include a review of the various properties of powdered solids pertinent to the development and manufacture of the products of the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and allied industries. In particular, the latest experimental techniques and equipment for evaluating important properties of powders will be discussed and related to both the underlying principles and common industrial problems. The different powder processing operations will be discussed and the range of equipment and machinery for each will be critically reviewed.

Each topic will be briefly introduced at a fairly fundamental level, but will then be extended to cover more sophisticated and innovative techniques, emphasizing the practical usefulness whenever relevant. The formal sessions will be supplemented by informal discussion periods, during which you are encouraged to raise specific problems.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

* Identify the basic concepts applying to processing of powders

* Design, modify and control a process to produce products that have the desired properties

* Select tests to ensure the performance of the process
