Predict Mixing Processes inside Agitated Tanks

Mixing processes in multi-fluid systems present a complicated competition between fluid inertia, viscosity, and buoyancy. M-Star CFD helps you model and predict real-time fluid mechanics in rheologically complex laminar, transitional, and turbulent systems.

How it Works

CFD Modeling Capabilities for Agitated Tanks

M-Star CFD software was built to run on millions and billions of lattice grid points, helping you rapidly and accurately model complex physics simulations—such as transport physics and blending in two-fluid, density stratified systems.

  • Rheology Complex Rheology
  • Stratification Density Stratification
  • Vortex Surface Vortexing
  • Dissipation Shear/Energy Dissipation
  • Impeller Time-Varying Impeller Speed
  • Blending Blend Time

Read how AbbVie developed digital twins of multi-fluid agitated tanks using M-Star CFD. From these twins, the mixing and dilution processes of monoclonal antibody (mAb) drug substance was optimized in silico.

Predicting Blend Time in Simple Agitated Tanks

A step-by-step approach for predicting fluid blend times in simple agitated tanks. Although applied here to a single phase, fully turbulent system, the approach is general and can be applied to any mixing configuration.

Choosing a Simulation Resolution: Agitated Tanks

Use M-Star CFD software to predict the effects of resolution on power number across a range or Reynolds numbers for multiple impellers. From this output, we will provide guidance on recommended simulation resolutions for agitated tanks.
