Experimental investigation of the agitation of complex fluids

Yazıcıoğlu, Özge
In this study, agitation of solutions using different impeller and tank geometry were investigated experimentally in terms of hydrodynamics, macromixing time and aeration characteristics. In the first set of experiments a cylindrical vessel equipped with two types of hydrofoil and a hyperboloid impeller or their combinations were used. Vessel and impeller diameters and water level were 300, 100 and 300 mm, respectively. At the same specific power consumption, 163 W/m3, the so called “hydrofoil 1” impeller provided the shortest mixing time at 7.8 s. At the top hydrofoil 1 impeller submergence of 100 mm, the hyperboloid impeller combination of it was the most efficient by a mixing time of 10.0 s at 163 W/m3. Ultrasound Doppler velocimetry and the lightsheet experiments showed that the hydrofoil 1, hydrofoil 2 impellers and the stated impeller combination provided a complete circulation all over the tank. Macromixing measurements were performed in square vessel for Generation 5 low and high rib and Generation 6 hyperboloid impellers. Vessel length, impeller diameters and water level were 900, 300 and 450 mm, respectively. At the same specific power consumption, 88.4 W/m3, Generation 6 mixer provided the lowest mixing time at 80.5 s. Aeration experiments were performed in square tank for Generation 5 low rib and Generation 6 hyperboloid impellers equipped with additional blades. With increasing flow number, the differences between the performances at different rotational speeds became smaller for each type of mixer. At similar conditions the transferred oxygen amount of Generation 6 impeller was about 20% better.


Thin-film microextraction coupled to LC-ESI-MS/MS for determination of quaternary ammonium compounds in water samples
Boyacı, Ezel; Pawliszyn, Janusz (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-01-01)
The dual nature of the quaternary ammonium compounds, having permanently charged hydrophilic quaternary ammonium heads and long-chain hydrophobic tails, makes the sample preparation step and analysis of these compounds challenging. A high-throughput method based on thin-film solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry was developed for simultaneous quantitative analysis of nine benzylic and aliphatic quaternary ammonium compounds. Chromatographic separation and detection o...
Electrochemical and quantum chemical studies on mitomycin and adriamycin
Ozalp-Yaman, S; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Turker, L (Elsevier BV, 2003-06-25)
In-situ spectroelectrochemical redox behaviour of two prominent chemotherapeutic agents, mitomycin and adriamycin were studied at constant potential. AM 1 (UHF) type quantum chemical calculations on the neutral as well as radical anion and cation forms of mitomycin and adriamycin were performed.
Hydrogen sulfide determination by solid surface luminescence
Eroglu, AE; Volkan, Mürvet; Bayramh, E; Ataman, Osman Yavuz; Mark, HB (1996-07-01)
In the analytical system suggested, atmospheric hydrogen sulfide reacts with the surface of a filter paper treated with aqueous cadmium chloride and yields a luminescent species whose intensity can be correlated with the analyte concentration in ambient air. It was shown that the luminescent species are CdS solid particles which were formed in a well defined size. The paper luminescence was also tried on polymeric surfaces; polyethyleneoxide, polyvinyl alcohol, ethylcellulose and carboxymethylcellulose were...
Raman bandwidths calculated for the librational ( a -phase) and internal (8, d loc and d phases) modes in solid N 2 using pseudospin-phonon coupling (PS) and energy-fluctuation (EF) models
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
This study gives the calculation of the Raman bandwidths using the models of the pseudospin-phonon coupling (PS) and energy fluctuation (EF) where the Raman frequency calculated from the molecular field theory, is considered as the order parameter close to the phase transitions in nitrogen. In particular, we study the temperature dependence of the Raman bandwidths and frequency shifts of the Eg librational mode (zero pressure) and the internal modes of and (at various pressures) for the solid nitrogen by ...
Optimization of ETV-ICP(TOF)MS and transient signal profiles for reducing isobaric interferences
Ertaş, Gülay (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2005-01-01)
One of the advantages of the ETV sample introduction is the ability to temporally separate analyte elements in complex mixtures by differences in their vaporization temperatures within the ETV for ICPMS. However, the broadening of the transient peaks in the transport tubing often obscures this temporal resolution. This study shows that decreasing the transport tubing diameter produces little broadening beyond that produced during aerosol production in the ETV. Maintaining such narrow peaks through the trans...
