“Mixing in stirred tanks with a competitive-consecutive reaction is very common in the industry. The desired product may be one of the two or more products formed during the reaction. In this work, the effect of mixing on the final reaction yield of the desired product has been studied. A semi-batch reactor was used. The mixing parameters varied during the experiments were feed time for one of the reactants, the impeller rotation rate, type of impellers, feed location, mixing vessel size and the molar feed ratio of the reactants. The scale-up criterion used in this work was constant power per unit volume. Simulations were performed using Fluent.4.5.1 and using the Paired-Interaction closure for the turbulence model to match the experimental results”--Abstract, page iii.
