The Institute of Particle Process Engineering at the TU Kaiserslautern investigates different scientific subjects in almost all fields of particle technology. The research at the institute covers the main unit operations of the solids process engineering.
These range from the formulation of particles with specific properties to the particle separation from the gas and liquid phase. The processes are studied experimentally and numerically on different time and length scales including particle-particle interaction, e.g. adhesion, deformation and breakage. Different processes with multi-phase flow are simulated by CFD, DEM and other methods.
