#667 - Mixing and Chemical Reaction (06004)
Mixing requirements for the wide variety of chemical reactions that are encountered in the process industries can vary from simple blending for homogeneous, slow reactions, to requirements for special devices for fast and/or heterogeneous reactions. Design of satisfactory mixing systems on all scales of operation requires understanding of the reactions involved including the possible interaction between the kinetics and mass transfer as well as the mixing requirements for contacting of multiple phases. These considerations apply to batch, semi-batch, and continuous operations. In some cases, many conventional mixing systems may be insufficient to achieve desired selectivity thereby presenting the mixing design engineer with critical scale-up design issues. Papers are sought that illustrate the influence of mixing in reactor design and performance.
