Static mixers: Mechanisms, applications, and characterization methods

  • This review reports on the static mixing process in industrial applications.
  • The first part of the study surveys the available commercial models.
  • The second part addresses the fundamentals and mixing measurement techniques. Three mixing scales, macro-, meso-, and micromixing are defined.

Introduction

Iodide/iodate chemical probe method

This chemical probe method, developed by Fournier et al., 1996a, and Fournier et al., 1996b to study partial segregation in stirred tanks, implements a system of parallel competing reactions producing iodine. The coupling of the borate neutralization and the Dushman reaction in this system allows the measurement of mixing efficiency in reactors by monitoring the amount of iodine produced. As mentioned before, this technique has been extensively used in different types of reactors. A novel adaptive
