Mixing and Blending: Combining Liquids


SKU: CE158 Categories: , Tags: ,


Mixing and blending liquids is arguably one of the most important and ubiquitous unit operations across all industry sectors within the diverse chemical process industries (CPI). Yet engineering challenges arise at many points in the process, from selecting and specifying the best mixer to meet the technical needs of the process and operating and maintaining mixers in the most optimal way, to meet technical, financial, environmental and safety objectives.

This collection of practical tutorial-style engineering articles provides informative, actionable information for process engineers and other technical professionals throughout the CPI.

Several articles focus on specific mixer options, including high-shear mixers, static mixers, continuous stirred-tank reactors, agitated reactors and more. Others emphasis how to blend challenging liquids, with several articles focused on viscosity-related issues. Learn techniques and design options to ensure worker safety and sound environmental performance, and tips for selecting the best materials of construction to ensure compatibility with challenging liquids.
