Although crystallization processes are quite old and common in the industry, the design of crystallizers has been a genuine science only since recent years. The main difficulties of crystallizers lie in the population balance equation which governs the size variations of crystals involved in the system.

BurrowX was contracted to assist a researcher at the University of Colorado with simulating a crystallization in Matlab. This simulation was performed to identify areas where the system can improve and where energy can be saved.
