Dilution is a process that consists of obtaining a final solution with a lower concentration than at the outset, either by adding solvent, or by drawing off some of the solution and topping up with solvent to keep the same (...)
Dissolution is the physico-chemical process by which a solute is incorporated in a solvent (we say the solute is dissolved) and forms a homogenous mixture called a solution.
Formally, dissolution is defined as mixing of (...)
Emulsion is the action of high-intensity mixing, with the aim of making two immiscible liquids miscible. It can be summarized as dispersing a liquid in fine droplets (dispersed phase) in another liquid (continuous phase). (...)
Absorption is a very common operation in gas purification. The aim of the operation is to transfer a weakly-concentrated compound from a gas phase to the liquid phase. The absorbed compound can physically dissolve in the (...)
Gas/liquid dispersion defines incorporation of a gas by separation into small bubbles in a liquid thanks to Rushton* and/or Disgaz* type turbines in order to obtain a chemical/thermal reaction.
Heat transfer, more commonly just called heat, is an exchange of thermal energy between two bodies at different temperatures, in order to obtain molecular evolution and thermal equilibrium between them. It corresponds to a (...)
Action of making one or more substances or a mixture uniform, or blending different elements in an assembly, in order to give unity and coherence to the whole. Hence it is the fact of submitting certain liquids to mechanical (...)
Liquid/liquid dispersion is the action of mixing, in order to make two or more miscible liquids homogenous. This action uses Propeller* and/or Turbine* type blades.
Liquid/liquid dispersion is a mixing process by (...)
The maintenance in suspension process precedes suspension. It involves mixing two bodies of different sizes (liquid/solid) in order to, thanks to the force of movement and the energy generated, raise all the bodies in the (...)
In order to encourage complex mixing of fibrous solids, AGITEC is developing special blades such as the AX4 accompanied by liquid to homogenize the solution and prevent fibres getting tangled around the blade.
Process of stirring two or more immiscible liquids (eg: oil & water), in order to obtain a chemical solution/reaction which is more or less homogenous. The opposite process is called settlement.
Unlike the mixing of (...)
Mixing miscible liquids corresponds to stirring two or more perfectly homogenous mixtures.
Mixing miscible liquids together is an operation carried out by stirring in order to obtain a homogeneous solution which then (...)
Solid/liquid dispersions are systems formed of a liquid in which small solid particles are submerged. There are different types of dispersion, the majority of which are used as a processing intermediate.
Spalling is a process in which a solid breaks down due to pressure exerted by a moving liquid.
Spalling is a process that allows a solid to be disintegrated by means of the pressure exerted by a moving (...)
The suspension process involves mixing two bodies of different sizes (liquid/solid) in order to, thanks to the force of movement and the energy generated, raise all the bodies in the vessel. The fluid will thus drag the (...)
