Residence time distributions (RTD) are measured for both a baffled and an unbaffled laboratory reactor of the same size with several internal pipes and a Rushton turbine operating at different feed flow rates and impeller rpms. Ideal behavior as determined by the mean and the variance of the RTD was observed at an impeller Reynolds number of 2327 for the… CONTINUE READING
