Data on the mixing of non-Newtonian fluids by a Rushton turbine in a cylindrical tank

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

The paper focuses on the data collected from the mixing of shear thinning non-Newtonian fluids in a cylindrical tank by a Rushton turbine. The data presented are obtained by using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of fluid flow field in the entire tank volume. The CFD validation data for this study is reported in the research article ‘Numerical investigation of hydrodynamic behavior of shear thinning fluids in stirred tank’ (Khapre and Munshi, 2015) [1]. The tracer injection method is used for the prediction of mixing time and mixing efficiency of a Rushton turbine impeller.

f0015: Distributions of the non-dimensional mixing time with impeller rotations for non-Newtonian fluids.

Mentions: The calculated mixing time, tm is multiplied by the impeller rotations, N to obtain the non-dimensional mixing time, Ntm. The chosen range of the impeller rotations make sure that the Reynolds number of fluid flow is either in transition or in the turbulent flow state. The distributions of the non-dimensional mixing time with the impeller speed are illustrated in Fig. 3. The figure shows that the nature of distribution of the Ntm is dependent on the mixing study location and the distribution of the non-dimensional mixing time is scattered in nature.
