Crystallisation

Crystallisation is a separation and purification process. It is a phase change in which a crystalline product is obtained from a solution.

Crystallisation takes place only when a solution reaches super-saturation stage. By changing temperature (mainly, cooling) we achieve super-saturation stage. The crystallisation process consists of two major events – Nucleation & Crystal Growth. The first step is the phase separation of new crystals. The second is the growth of these crystals to a larger size. These two processes are known as nucleation and crystal growth, respectively.

We, at Kancor, have deployed our own proprietary technology to conduct crystallisation by the method of temperature change. The process is fully automated through the use of enclosed crystallisation chambers, Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and SCADA that help us avoid human error, thereby increasing batch yield and reduced cycle time.
