Harmsen Consultancy BV

Advanced Course Industrial Process and Unit Operations Scale-up is a 2-day Advanced Course from Harmsen Consultancy BV. It takes place on the 5th and 6th of November 2019 in Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands.

Course program:

The programs on these course days complement each other. You can participate both days or choose either day of this course.

Why you should take this course

Fifty percent of all commercial scale process implementations fail, meaning that the commercial scale process does not meet the design goals even after a long start-up period (source Independent Process Analysis from 12 000 industrial projects). These failures can be prevented by following established scale-up methods as provided by the book: Industrial Process Scale-up,  by Jan Harmsen. The course is provided by him and is based on this book.

Already signed in participants come from different countries and companies: among which a pilot plant provider, engineering contractor, and someone working in petrochemicals. There are lots of opportunities inside the course to interact which each other in workshops!

Course goals

To provide knowledge and practical experience to industrial process scale-up methods to reduce scale-up risks so that the commercial scale implementations are successful and to provide teachers a comprehensive theory of scale-up methods.

Learning goals

  1. To identify critical aspects of process and unit operations scale-up;
  2. Choose the best process and unit operations scale-up method  for a given case;
  3. Make an innovation plan for a given case.

Intended course participants

The attendees are typically industrial practitioners and academic teachers in process research, development and design.. They are active: in process industries such chemicals, food, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals paper & pulp, steel, oil refining, biomass processing, inside  technology providers, such as process equipment, and pilot plant companies, in contract research institutes, engineering firms, or in higher education institutes such as universities and polytechnics. The participants have a minimum education level BSc or equivalent. If uncertain about your qualification, please contact the course lecturer.
