Gas Particles and Microbubble Mixing

Application Mixing different fluids with potentially different properties remains one of the most important and potentially costly industrial processes. In this Flow Science article, we complete our presentation of the newly-redesigned particle model in FLOW-3D v11.2 and take a fresh look into one of the most common and essential industrial processes: mixing.

For most industrial applications, fluids of different surface tension qualities, properties or even rheologies may have to be homogenized in order to continue to the next stage of processing. Mixing can be achieved through different methods, such as impellers, turbulence-causing geometrical structures, oscillations etc., but the desired outcome always remains the same, i.e., achieving a high level of homogenization at the minimum cost. In order to achieve this goal in small-scale industrial applications, a microbubble mixer in which gas particles are injected into a tube can be used to achieve great homogenization between fluids in a relatively small device, as shown in the following example.
