Kinetics of zeolite NaA crystallization in microgravity
Abbreviated Journal Title
population balance; heterogeneous nucleation; secondary nucleation; CRYSTALS; GROWTH; Materials Science, Multidisciplinary; Physics, Applied
The paper describes a population balance-based study of zeolite NaA crystallization from solution for well-mixed batch operations both on ground and in low earth orbit. The model is based on heterogeneous and secondary nucleation and a size-dependent power law crystal growth mechanism. The predicted final particle size distribution is compared with the available experimental data. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
