Abstract

The two-impinging-streams (TIS) reactor, already employed for many gas-solid and gas-liquid operations, was successfully implemented here for liquid—solid systems. The following performance parameters of the reactor were investigated: mean residence time and holdup of the particles as well as the dissolution of urea in water, while both phases are in a continuous flow. It was found that the TIS reactor is a very effective device that provides the highest mass-transfer coefficients among the reactors designed for continuous operation.
