Gas hold-up analysis in an unsteady stirred vessel by means of infinite series

À propos de cet article


The use of a liquid level sensor made it possible to measure changes in gas hold-up over time in a stirred tank during unsteady mixing. These results were subjected to Fourier time series analysis and a model of gas hold-up changes in time was proposed. It allowed one to determine the model value of gas hold-up, which can be useful for characterizing gas hold-up during unsteady mixing and as a comparison to gas hold-up during steady mixing. The characteristic frequency was also determined, which corresponds to about twice the oscillation frequency. Model gas hold-up values for coalescing and non-coalescing systems were compared. Moreover, the change of the gas hold-up at constant maximum stirrer rotation frequency and variable gas flow rate for different oscillation frequencies was investigated.
