Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0901810A2] Fluid is injected through fine nozzles (4) into a container through which the droplet dispersion flows. The energy of the jet streams is dissipated within a short distance from the injection point and mixing is enhanced by the circulating flow produced in the container at shear speeds below 20/second. An Independent claim is also included for the apparatus for the above process comprising a cylindrical container with a central inlet (2) for a droplet dispersion and small diameter nozzles (4) which enter the container perpendicular to the container axis and at the level of the dispersion inlet tube.
