Abstract

A previously developed simulation model for multiphase liquid-liquid or gas-liquid reaction systems has been improved in concept and corroborated with experimental data for liquid-liquid dispersions. Prediction of drop size distributions, dispersed phase mixing rates and average drop size as a function of operating conditions and physical properties is demonstrated by comparison with experimental data. It is shown that the model describes the fluid hydrodynamics, and particle dynamics as a function of physical properties of the multiphase systems, the configuration of vessel and the operating conditions. This capability permits one to 'a priori' predict the drop size distribution, dispersed mixing effects and the interfacial surface area of liquid-liquid dispersion.
