Liquid-liquid dispersion and its application in industry: The application of ERT, FBRM, and CFD in liquid-liquid dispersion
This article provides a literature review on liquid-liquid dispersion and its application in industry such as droplet size distribution and mixing index. The studies related to the application of ERT, FBRM, and CFD in liquid-liquid dispersion are also presented. Moreover, the fundamentals in particle shape analysis using FBRM instrument are described. According to the literature review little effort has been devoted to investigate the effect of different mixing parameters (such as impeller speed, viscosity of the fluid, and volume fraction) on droplet size distribution and mixing of dilute liquid-liquid dispersions. The application of ERT in the mixing of two immiscible liquids is not also fully evaluated yet. It was also found that the effect of operation conditions on droplet shape was not investigated and available literatures on particle shape analysis are limited to solid particles and bubble columns.
