CONSTANTIN TACA STUDY ON SUSPENSION OF SOLID PARTICLES IN REACTORS WITH MECHANICAL MIXING SYSTEMS
In the frame of present work reviewed the principals results of researches realized for identification of vessel form influence about the suspending process of solid particles. To improve the suspending operation efficiency is suggested a new type of reactor, characterized through his spherical form, as well as through the presence of a cone located to the downside of the vessel. Through experimental determinations are demonstrated the superiority of spherical reactor, as compared to the cylindrical flat-bottomed type. At the same time, there are established calculus relations for impeller complete suspension speed, as well as for power number when using fully filled spherical vessels with radial baffles.
