A Comprehensive Review of Just Suspended Speed in Liquid-Solid and Gas-Liquid-Solid Stirred Tank Reactors
For successful design and operation of Liquid-Solid (LS) and Gas-Liquid-Solid (GLS) stirred tank reactors engineers and scientists must define geometrical and operating conditions for a specific medium (specified physical properties) in such a way that provides the optimum level of solid suspension. Failure to design the stirred tank reactor to achieve optimum conditions and maintain the system at these conditions during operation may be detrimental to product quality (selectivity and yield) and cost. Successful design and operation require comprehensive knowledge about how the state of solid suspension may be affected by changing physical, operational, and geometrical parameters. Also, accurate correlations are necessary to fulfill that objective. This article intends to provide that background for scientists and engineers. It critically surveys the published work in this field and makes specific recommendations for the appropriate conditions that provide the successful operation of agitated vessels.
