Micro level mixing - Chemical processing
Micro-level mixing topics covered here are flow related "chemical" processes.
These are processes that we can't see with our eyes, but we can measure. Examples are processes
that happen in the boundary layers at the vessels walls, such as heat transfer and
electrochemical mass transfer. Examples are heat transfer to the coils or the

This is the 343 page doctoral thesis of Dr. Post. The electrochemical
method was used to derive the heat transfer coefficients. 124
different geometries were tested. Impellers included single and dual

Rushton Turbines with and without standard baffles, anchors, 1.5 pitch propellers
with and without standard baffles, single and dual pitched bladed turbines (PBT)
with and without standard baffles, and single and dual flat bladed turbines
(paddles without the disk) with 4 or 6 blades and with or without standard
baffles. The effect of the bottom was also studied: dished bottom
(German Klöpperboden (Kloepperboden)) or a flat bottom tank.
