Mixing Tank Case Study for Hexon Engineering


Operating Conditions

  • Fluid Properties
    Density = 1100 kg/m3
    Viscosity = 1000 cP
  • Operating Volume
    Liquid Level = 1600 mm
    Volume = 2.14 m3
  • Impeller Speed = 95 RPM

Results : Flow Pattern

Velocity Contours and Vector Plots

  • A single flow circulation loop formed by the agitator
  • As the tank is un-baffled the flow is highly rotational A single flow circulation loop formed by the agitator

Results : Mixing Profile

• Mixing time (95% Uniformity) is 8 s

Predicted Vortex Shape


  • Impeller-1 is the bottom most impeller
  • TKE is the turbulent kinetic energy
  • TDR is the turbulent dissipation rate
