The course will review principles of mixing in stirred 
tanks, provide recommendations for process design and 
scale-up, plus enable participants to apply these 
principles and recommendations to their mixing 
processes/problems. Additionally the course will explain 
how  “MixIT – an enterprise software to predict stirred 
tank performance” can help facilitate knowledge 
management, collaboration and use of mixing science 
within a global organization to accelerate reactor 
design, process scale up, process optimization and 
troubleshooting associated with stirred tanks.

The course take-away's are:
- Introduction to mixing in stirred tanks with various 
impeller types and their applications
- Scale-up rules for various processes
- Mixing of miscible liquids - Power dissipation, Blend 
time and Flow patterns
- Gas-Liquid mixing - Gassed power consumption, Gas hold-
up, Gas liquid mass transfer
- Solid-liquid mixing - Critical impeller speed for solid 
suspension, Solid-liquid mass transfer
- Use of CFD to address various mixing issues
- Hands on session with “MixIT”- Solve various mixing 
problems using MixIT

Why You Should Attend?

- The course format combines lectures, demonstrations, 
and problem-solving sessions, helping you to classify 
good/bad mixing.

- Predict a priori various mixing parameters using 
correlations and CFD models.

- Learn technical approaches for scale-up, trouble 
shooting and mixing process optimization.
