Computational Fluid Mixing (CFM)
Mixing of single and multi-phase fluids in stirred tank reactors is a common operation in many industries. Understanding the fluid flow in these tanks is critical for equipment design, scale-up, process control and economic factors. CFM models allow you to see what is taking place in the mixing vessel. The results enable an engineer to select the best agitator design to obtain the desired process performance.
The flow patterns in stirred tanks are complex, which makes traditional CFM a time-consuming process. A CFM trained technician may need as long as three days to define all of the equations and run the program. However a variety of proprietary techniques is applied to expedite this process. It is possible to obtain a two-dimensional CFM analysis in as little as 10 minutes, and a 3-D analysis in 3 to 4 hours.
This is not limited to just cylindrical stirred tanks. Rectangular and side-entering agitated tanks as well as turbulent and laminar flow static mixers can all be successfully evaluated using our CFM technology.
