The impact of impeller type on floc size evolution during flocculation of polystyrene particles with aluminum sulfate has been investigated by both Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and experimental methods. The Lightning R100, A200 and A310 impellers were respectively examined. The results show the impeller type greatly affects the hydrodynamic environment and floc growth process at a given… Expand
