New Biox® Agitator Concept Testwork
The paper describes the evaluation of a new mixer system developed in conjunction with SPX Process Equipment for the BIOX® process. Five different impeller combinations were tested with a Lightnin A315 A340 combination given the best results. With this combination the overall power per unit were reduced and less air were injected into the test reactors and still obtain the same and even better oxygen mass transfer compared to the commercially used A315 impeller.
