Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR MIXING FLUIDS, INCLUDING FLUIDS CONTAINING SOLIDS
(FR) APPAREIL POUR MÉLANGER DES FLUIDES, Y COMPRIS DES FLUIDES CONTENANT DES SOLIDES
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for mixing fluids, with particular application in the mixing of air and water for facilitating aerobic biological reactions for breaking down organic material. The apparatus includes gas-lift pump effected recirculation through a mixing chamber (in which a toroidal vortex is established) into a reactor vessel having an upper agitation region and a lower separation region. An embodiment for use with compostable materials includes an assembly for handling settleable solids and maintaining suspension of buoyant materials; a foam suppression device and an overflow reservoir.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil pour mélanger des fluides, en particulier pour mélanger l'air et l'eau pour faciliter des réactions biologiques aérobies pour décomposer une matière organique. L'appareil a une recirculation réalisée par une pompe d'ascension au gaz à travers une chambre de mélange (dans laquelle un vortex toroïdal est établi) dans une cuve de réacteur ayant une région d'agitation supérieure et une région de séparation inférieure. Un mode de réalisation destiné à être utilisé avec des matières compostables comprend un ensemble pour manipuler des solides décantables et maintenir une suspension de matières flottantes; un dispositif de suppression de mousse et un réservoir de trop-plein.
