The research group Equipment Design develops and characterises modular laboratory and pilot equipment for the continuous chemical and pharmaceutical production. Besides small columns for extraction and distillation, the equipment for continuous crystallisation and microstructured reactors with integrated measuring and control techniques are developed. Simulations and X-ray measurements of multi-phase flows as well as bionic design of equipment elements complement the scientific profile. The experimental work is supported via modelling, optimised experimental design, AI-supported image evaluation, and advanced analysis techniques.
