Fraud Blocker Reology explained

Reology explained

Rheology is a complex yet essential component that aids in understanding the behavior of fluids. By conducting rheological research, Jongia can design the rationale for a more efficient and effective mixing and stirring process, leading to improved product quality and process efficiency.

Rheology (also known as Rheology) is the science concerned with the study of the deformation and flow of matter, primarily liquids and gases. It is a crucial aspect in various industries such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and chemical engineering. When conducting rheological research, there are several aspects to consider:

Selection of Samples:

The choice of samples is essential. They must be representative of the material or product being studied. The physical and chemical properties of the samples, such as viscosity, elasticity, and plasticity, must be carefully considered.

Behavior of the Fluid:

Understanding the behavior of the fluid under different conditions is vital. This includes studying the flow behavior under different temperatures, pressures, and in different geometries. The fluid can be Newtonian or non-Newtonian, which significantly impacts how it behaves under stress.

Measuring Equipment:

To analyze the behavior of fluids, various types of measuring equipment are used. Viscometers and rheometers are the most common instruments. These devices measure the viscosity and the deformation and flow of materials under stress, respectively. This is referred to as “the shear effect”.

How does this translate to the selection of an agitator?

The ultimate application of rheological data in this case is to support the selection of a mixer. The mixer must be effective in handling the rheological properties of the fluid. Factors such as the size and shape of the mixer elements, the speed of stirring, and the force exerted must be matched to the specific properties of the fluid to ensure efficient mixing without damaging the structure or properties of the material.

Additionally, there are other aspects that play a role, such as hygienic design, the use of baffles or an eccentric setup of the mixer, the application of specific mixer elements that should not damage the fluid, and applying the correct strength calculations to give the mixer sufficient mechanical strength, making it a reliable process solution.

For all these aspects, you can turn to Jongia Mixing Technology.

Jongia has 85 years of experience in this application and therefore knows very well which stirring process and which version of the suitable mixer is the best solution for you.
