Abstract

A three-parameter exponential size-dependent crystal growth rate function G(L) = G(m){1-exp[-a(L+c)]} is proposed. The model has been examined in detail for the direct determination of size-dependent crystal growth rates from the population density data of continuous mixed-suspension mixed-product-removal (MSMPR) crystallizers using two sets of realistic data, both for systems which hold and which violate McCabe's DELTAL law respectively.It is shown that direct fitting of differential population density data using the proposed model gives an improved estimation of effective crystal growth rates over the whole size range during MSMPR crystallization compared with previous models tested.
