Experimental Investigation on Drawdown of Floating Particles in Viscous Systems Driven by Coaxial Mixers

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


In view of the current situation of single form and low efficiency, a coaxial mixer with wide adaptability was combined with the drawdown of floating particles in viscous systems, and the effects of operation mode, impeller type, impeller diameter, impeller submergence, system viscosity, solid concentration and particle size were investigated experimentally. It is found that the coaxial mixer under corotation mode can achieve the critical drawdown of floating particles with lower speed and power than the corresponding single-shaft mixer, and the advantage becomes more obvious with increasing system viscosity and solid volume fraction. Under the same conditions, compared with the axial and radial flow impellers, the mixed flow impeller with down-pumping mode can effectively draw the floating particles down with the lowest critical speed and power. Moreover, a larger impeller diameter and smaller impeller submergence are recommended for the drawdown of floating particles, but the impeller diameter should not exceed half of the vessel diameter.
