Rushton Turbine Impeller Uses

Rushton turbine impellers are often chosen for applications requiring elongated tanks or low-level mixing. Because of their vertical angle of attack, radial impellers such as rushton turbines generate high-shear rates and exhibit a relatively low pumping number, making them particularly sensitive to changes in viscosity. The reactivity to viscosity changes makes rushton impellers ideal for processes where maintaining precise control over fluid properties and achieving consistent results are vital, such as applications in the pharmaceutical industry. 

Radial Flow Impellers for Liquid-Gas Mixing

Rushton impellers play a significant role in liquid-gas mixing because of their radial flow pattern generation. The pattern creates separate circulation currents above and below each impeller, providing little interaction between fluid streams from different impellers. The segregation forms a barrier to axial flow and top-to-bottom mixing throughout the tank. This is more effective for liquid-gas mixing than an axial mixing impeller, as axial flow impellers do not promote consistent dispersion of gas within liquids and can create localized pockets of gas or liquids within the tank. The radial flow patterns offered by rushton turbine impellers lead to improved gas-liquid contact and enhanced mass transfer within the tank, making them the ideal choice for liquid-gas mixing applications. 

Trusted Manufacturer of Rushton Turbine Impellers

Rushton turbine impellers are utilized in a variety of industries that require effective and consistent chemical mixing. Their design facilitates the optimal dispersion of liquids and solids in fluid systems, promoting efficient chemical reactions and preventing the settling of particles or pockets of unmixed materials.
