This volume is a selection of the edited papers presented at the 7th European Mixing Congress. It is concerned exclusively with mixing in circular section vessels, using centrally mounted paddles or similar impellers.
The contents are arranged under three classifications: Modelling of Mixing Processes, Mixing Operations, and Experimental Techniques. This arrangement will assist the reader in identifying the topic area by function or application, rather than by technology.
In this volume the sections on Modelling contain papers which focus on the representation of the mixing process, whether by equation, scale-up criteria, or fluid dynamic simulation. Similarly, Mixing Operations are concerned with the application or function of the mixing process, such as mass transfer, heat transfer or mixing time. Experimental Techniques addresses the tools the researcher needs to use at the data gathering experimental stage. It collects together advances made in the various methods used by some of the foremost researchers, and indicates those areas still in need of additional instrumentation or methods of data reduction.
The volume will be of interest to engineering researchers, designers and users of mixing equipment, and to those planning research and development programmes, who wish to keep up to date with advances in the basic technology and its applications.

Editorial Reviews

Focuses exclusively on mixing in circular section vessels using centrally mounted paddles or similar impellers. The 29 papers, from a European conference of chemical engineers in Brugge, Belgium, September 1991, discuss such topics as the variation of flow pattern and mixing time with impeller spacing in stirred vessels with two Rushton impellers, the mixing of miscible liquids with large differences in density and viscosity, and numerical particle tracking in a turbine agitated vessel. Of interest to designers and users of mixing equipment. Reproduced typescripts. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
