Modular Mixer

This model provides you with tools to build a variety of mixers by combining two common types of vessels with two types of impellers. The mixers are baffled flat and dished bottom vessels with either pitched blade impellers or Rushton turbines. The model includes three examples using the Rotating Machinery, Fluid Flow branch with the frozen-rotor study type. The first example solves a laminar ...

Mixer

The purpose of the Mixer application is to provide a user-friendly interface where scientists, process designers, and process engineers can investigate the influence that vessels, impellers, baffles, and operating conditions have on the mixing efficiency and the power that is required to drive the impellers. You can use the app to understand and optimize the design and operation of a mixer for a ...

Free Surface Mixer

This example of turbulent flow in a partially baffled turbulent mixer shows how to set up The Rotating Machinery, Turbulent Flow interfaces from the Mixer Module with free surface and stationary free surface features. Both frozen rotor and time-dependent simulations are performed and compared.

Mixing of Water in a Flat Bottom Mixer

This tutorial example simulates the flow in a flat bottom mixer containing, agitated by a pitched four blade impeller, where the fluid is water, and flow is assumed to be turbulent. The flow in the mixer is modeled using the k-ε turbulence model, and a time-dependent simulation corresponding to 30 revolutions of the impeller is performed in order to reach the operating conditions of the mixer. ...

Nonisothermal Flow in a 2D Mixer

This model illustrates the modeling of temperature distribution in a simplified mixer.

Centrifugal Pump

Centrifugal pumps are used in various applications and can be found in many industries. The size of the pump in this model is typical for automotive applications. This model shows how to set up rotating machinery simulations using the frozen rotor approximation for modeling centrifugal pumps. The model includes the computation of a series of interesting parameters for pumps using component ...

Behavior of a Power-Law Fluid in a Mixer

This model shows how to use simulations to predict power numbers with Power Law fluids in a mixer. It simulates the behavior of flow in a flat bottom tank with a single four-blade pitched impeller. The flow was modeled as laminar and the frozen rotor approach was used to solve the discrete governing equations in one quarter of a baffled tank. The calculated power numbers were compared with ...
