2-day course Membrane concentration & evaporation: From theory to practice

Ede, The Netherlands, 24 and 25 January 2017

“Learn the ins & outs of membrane concentration and falling film evaporation and catch up on the latest developments to optimize your process and save on costs”.

Powder processing lines often contain a membrane concentration and evaporation step to remove as much water as possible before (spray) drying. However, these units are complex pieces of equipment, for example resulting in fouling or inefficient use. Improvement can often be achieved in reduction of the energy consumption, minimisation of fouling and improvement of cleaning.


During this two-day course the latest developments in membrane and falling film evaporation technology, process optimization and cost saving strategies will be presented, including case studies, examples from industry and hands-on demonstrations.

The course includes basic evaporation theory, followed by, a hands-on workshop which will enable the participants to apply the theory in practice. Additionally, case studies from the field will be presented.
