In almost all solids processing operations there comes a time when the engineer must deal with a slurry a mixture of solids and liquids. This can be in a reactor, crystallizer, centrifuge feed tank, or a pipeline. What sets a slurry apart from normal liquids is a longer list of physical attributes, including: particle size, distribution, and particle shapes, with the resulting shear, settling, and drag of the particles.
Solids suspension and power dissipation in stirred tanks agitated by an impeller near the tank bottom. In this work, the effect of very small impeller clearances off the tank bottom, C, on complete solid off-bottom suspension, Njs, was investigated. Four types of impellers were used six-blade flat-disk turbine, six-blade flat-blade turbine, six-blade flat 45 degreees pitched-blade turbine, and the high efficiency impeller Chemineer HE

A new aproach to characterize suspensions in stirred vessels based on computational fluid dynamics. Giulietti III and M. Seckler I.
A high efficiency and energy saving ball mill with rolling bearing. Classifying equipment takes use of the different sedimentation speed of the solid particle in slurry. SF flotation cell is a mechanical agitation type flotation equipment with self-slurry suction and self-air…. Washing thickener for solid-liquid separation of gold leaching liquid.
Pumping out your tank is very important to do. Do you find that your yard is a little bit soggy? Maybe your toilet is backing up.
In processes that mix solids in fluid, particulates that cannot dissolve in liquids will either sink to the bottom of the tank and collect in the corners, or stick together and agglomerate. This compromises product uniformity product qualityand in extreme cases, can cause a system to malfunction or fail. The goal is to bring the mixture into specification and keep it there. This means keeping the solids evenly dispersed throughout the product, without damage.
