In two focused days, you’ll compare the performance characteristics of the fluid foil impellers to traditionally designed models. You’ll learn how to appropriately-apply laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) data and computational fluid dynamics in your plant. Plus, you’ll analyze a variety of key geometric variables, including tank shape, impeller spacing and baffles. And, you’ll examine how to scale-up and scale down using practical and proven techniques for meeting geometric similarity. This broad survey course covers the key factors influencing the success of industrial fluid mixing and highlights leading-edge trends and developments that you can put to work immediately.
