Evaluation of a Method for Measuring Mixing Time Using Numerical-Simulation and Experimental-Data
A method for measuring mixing performance in large-scale vessels is investigated. The method is evaluated experimentally in a pilotscale reactor and by using a model based on the three-dimensional calculation of the flow field. The method is based on injection of a tracer and measuring the concentration with several detectors at different locations. The mixing performance is measured as the decay rate of the difference between the concentration at the detectors and the final concentration. The model predicts a strong dependence on injection point. The assumption of a first-order decay rate of the concentration deviation is more appropriate for some injection points.
