Fluid Mixing Technology, Part 1

To those outside of chemical engineering, mixing may seem a mundane topic needing little attention, but for chemical engineers in an industrial setting, mixing is an important and complex subject.

In the video above, we take a look at the basic design principles for blending fluids in a stirred tank. For more information about mixing, you may also want to check out the various demonstrations of mixing techniques and equipment such as the alternating helical mixer and the eductor with rotor-stator in this fluid technology playlist.   

More on fluid mixing 

These videos are all excerpts from the AIChE Academy course Fluid Mixing Technology for Operators, which provides a solid overview of both mixing theories as well as current mixing technology.
