Perfect mixing in a 1.8 L crystallizer. Data for mixing at 200 rpm fits the equation, ln n = 26.3 – 0.407 L, where n = number density of crystals in nuclei/micron-L, and L = crystal size in microns. Average residence time, τ, is 38 s. Assumptions: Equilibrium and applicability of the MSMPR model. Find: (a) no (b) G (c) Bo (d) mean crystal length (e) nc (f) whether the results are consistent with the trends in Example 17.12. (g) From the results here and in Example 17.12, predict G if no agitation. Analysis: (a) From (17-38), ln n = ln no – L/Gτ Comparing this to the given experimental correlation above, ln no = 26.3 Therefore, no = exp(26.3) = 2.64 x 1011 (b) Also from the same correlation, L/Gτ = 0.407 L Therefore, Gτ = 1/0.407 and G = 1/[0.407(38)] = 0.0647 micron/s (c) From (17-51), Bo = Gno = 0.0647(2.64 x 1011) = 1.71 x 1010 nuclei/L-s (d) From (17-42), Lmean = Gτ = 0.0647(38) = 2.46 microns (e) From (17-54), nc = noτG = (2.64 x 1011)(38)(0.0647) = 6.49 x 1011 crystals/L or 6.49 x 108 crystals/m3 (f) Comparison of results to those of Example 17.12: Rpm no, crystals/micron-L G, microns/s Bo, nuclei/L-s Lmean, microns nc, crystals/m3 950 1.11 x 1012 0.164 1.89 x 109 6.23 6.92 x 107 400 1.22 x 1011 0.0841 1.03 x 1010 3.20 3.91 x 108 200 2.64 x 1011 0.0647 1.71 x 1010 2.46 6.49 x 108 Consistent ? Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes (g) By extrapolation to an asymptotic value, as shown in the diagram on the next page, At 0 rpm, Lmean = 2 microns and G = Lmean/τ = (2)/(38) = 0.053 micron/s Exercise 17.27 (continued) 18 16 14 12 100 x Growth Rate, microns/s 10 8 6 Mean Size, microns 4 2 0 0 100 200 300 400 500 RPM 600 700 800 900 1000 Exercise 17.28 Subject: Precipitation of CaCO3 as calcite by mixing aqueous solutions of Na2CO3 and CaCl2 in an MSMPR crystallizer.
