Electrical resistance tomography (ERT) has the capability to resolve the 3-D conductivity field inside a stirred mixing vessel using multiple planes of axially spaced sensors. This capability has already been exploited to qualitatively image vortex formation and geometry, pseudo-stationary gas-liquid mixing and unsteady dynamic brine tracer mixing inside a plant scale (1.5 m) stirred vessel (Mann et al , 1997 1 ). This feature of qualitative imaging, arising from simplified reconstruction by… CONTINUE READING
