In this paper, effects of the impeller blade width are investigated by realizing three geometrical configurations, namely Case 1 to 3 (details are summarized in Table 1). Figure 1. Close clearance impellers like the helical ribbon (HR) and helical ribbon screw (HRS) have found numerous industrial applications in the mixing of highly viscous fluids.

The spiral-like fluid motion induced by the ribbon as well as the small clearance from the vessel wall promote bulk mixing and minimize formation of stagnant zones.

The flow pattern generated in the fluid resembles helix. Impeller dynamics can be modelled by both Bernoulli's principle and Newton's third law. The impeller (propell) is sometimes colloquially known as a screw or a rotor. Rotating impellers in agitated vessel's are used to mix fluids and/or hold particles suspended in the vessel.

Keywords computational fluid dynamic, double helical ribbon impeller, non-Newtonian fluid, Metzner constant 1 INTRODUCTION The mixing of liquids by mechanical agitation is one of the most commonly used operations in chemical and food industries as well as in polymerization applications [1,2].

Rheology is known to have a strong impact on the flow behavior and the power consumption of mechanically agitated tanks. In the case of viscoelastic fluids, the role of elasticity on power draw has yet to be elucidated, though recent studies with helical ribbon impellers indicate that elasticity increases torque.

The draught tube has functions of intermixing between the tube and screw by obstructing radial flows, and making some circulation regime.

Purposes of agitation: 1. Suspending solid particles (suspension) 2. Majority of non-Newtonian fluids are pseudoplastic with shear-thinning property, which means that the viscosity will be different in different parts of the stirred tank.

In such mixing process, it is difficult to predict accurately the power consumption and mean shear rate for designing novel impeller. Metzner-Otto method is a widely accepted method to solve these questions in mixing non.We present in this work the results of a threedimensional mixing study in a vessel provided with two kinds of impeller, namely an helical ribbon screw impeller and an helical ribbon impeller.
