Micromixing in a rotor-stator spinning disc reactor

\u3cp\u3eThis paper presents the micromixing times in a rotor-stator spinning disc reactor. Segregation indices are obtained at different rotational speeds performing the Villermaux-Dushman parallel-competitive reaction scheme. Consequently, the corresponding micromixing times are calculated using the engulfment model, while considering the self-engulfment effect. It was found that the segregation index decreases with an increasing disc speed. Furthermore, for the investigated operational conditions, the estimated micromixing times are in the range of 1.13 × 10\u3csup\u3e-4\u3c/sup\u3e to 8.76 × 10\u3csup\u3e-3\u3c/sup\u3e seconds, in agreement with the theoretical dependency on the energy dissipation rate of ε\u3csup\u3e-0.5\u3c/sup\u3e. In a rotor-stator spinning disc reactor it is thus possible to further continue the theoretical trend of decreasing micromixing times with very high levels of energy dissipation rates that are unattainable in traditional types of process equipment.\u3c/p\u3
