Analysis of the hydrodynamics in a polymerizing reactor for the synthesis of butyl rubber
Results are presented for hydrodynamic analysis of a vessel with mixing devices for the production of butyl rubber. The velocity fields obtained are in good agreement with familiar semi-empirical models and experimental data. Optimal location of the catalyst-feed pipe to ensure uniform distribution of the catalytic mixture throughout the volume of the reactor is determined on the basis of analysis of the hydrodynamic structure of the flow within the vessel.
