I would like to know what kind of agitator in a batch reactor I should use. Reactor dimensions are 1160 mm in height and 800 mm in diameter. Reactor contents are 250 Kg of 853 Kg/cubic meter dense liquid and the gas is purged to the liquid through dip tube at 75Kg/hr. What kind of agitator should we introduce to this batch reactor?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Agitator type for batch reactor27 June 2007 at 1:29pmRecommended mixer:
- 250-mm diameter, radial-flow impeller turning at 4 revolutions per second
- 350-W motor
- Shaft must be designed to operate safely at the speed and load.
