Anyone to advise on the type of impeller for a cooling crystallization tank for a pharmaceutical process.

Are baffles a good idea when it comes to cleaning? Is it a common practise?

Hi ,

I've seen different types of agitators from pitch blades to anchors . One important point is the surface of the equipment(reactor & agitator, baffles) , should be mirror polished to ensure good thermal transfer . Baffles very seldom used.

BTW you don't state anything about the reactor , is it a glass lined or a stainless steel reactor ?

Good luck

Thanks Breizh,


I am considering both types of reactors GL and SS. It will more likely be Glass-Lined.
