Crystallization as a unit operation is widely practiced throughout the chemical process industries (CPI), yet, despite the wealth of experience gained from such widespread application, this method suffers a disproportionate number of process difficulties. To gain insight into why this might be, it is helpful to ask, "What can I expect to achieve by crystallization?" and "Are these expectations realistic in this particular application?" To answer these questions, it is necessary to have a grasp of the fundamentals of crystallization and a checklist to help identify potential problem areas.
