Educational Resources in Particle Technology
Originally launched by its Managing Editor, Ralph D. Nelson, Jr., Ph.D., P.E., Fellow of the AIChE., the ERPT was a resource for professional and academic technologists the world over.
This is the main page for our archive of the ERPT pages and the resources they still offer practitioners in the field.

WHAT IS ERPT?
- tutorials at the undergraduate and graduate level
- ideas and examples for enriching classes and laboratories
- typical solutions for common industrial problems
Professional oversight of the ERPT site is provided by the Particle Technology Forum, a technical division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Web site design, editing, and maintainance is provided by the Managing Editor of ERPT, Ralph D. Nelson, Jr., Ph.D., P.E., Fellow of the AIChE
Origin / History
ERPT was launched in 1998 as a public education service of the Particle Technology Forum. This Web site provides on-line, just-in-time, world-wide, free-of-charge tutorials in particle technology as a public service. The original goal was to build a site that would eventually provide several hundred tutorials, each equivalent to one to three hours of classroom instruction at the third-year college level. These would be introductory in nature and in the ideal case would describe the main phenomenological and theoretical aspects of the topic, noting industrial applications, large-scale equipment, typical industrial problems, and typical solutions to those problems.
Over the past ten years usage has grown to over ten thousand visits per month. See History of ERPT
