Continuous Reactor - Mixing


Mixing is another important classifying feature for continuous reactors. Good mixing improves the efficiency of heat and mass transfer.

In terms of trajectory through the reactor, the ideal flow condition for a continuous reactor is plug flow (since this delivers uniform residence time within the reactor). There is however a measure of conflict between good mixing and plug flow since mixing generates axial as well as radial movement of the fluid. In tube type reactors (with or without static mixing), adequate mixing can be achieved without seriously compromising plug flow. For this reason, these types of reactor are sometimes referred to as plug flow reactors.

Continuous reactors can be classified in terms of the mixing mechanism as follows:

Famous quotes containing the word mixing:

    Political image is like mixing cement. When it’s wet, you can move it around and shape it, but at some point it hardens and there’s almost nothing you can do to reshape it.
    Walter F. Mondale (b. 1928)

    How natural that the errors of the ancient should be handed down and, mixing with the principles and system which Christ taught, give to us an adulterated Christianity.
    Olympia Brown (1835–1900)

    Give me Catholicism every time. Father Cheeryble with his thurible; Father Chatterjee with his liturgy. What fun they have with all their charades and conundrums! If it weren’t for the Christianity they insist on mixing in with it, I’d be converted tomorrow.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
