  We have investigated the impact of partially wetting particles of tens of micrometers on inversion instability of agitated liquid–liquid dispersions. Particles of this size can be easily separated from the exit streams to avoid downstream processing-related issues. The results show that the presence of hydrophilic particles in small quantities (volume fraction range of 2 × 10–4 to Key Words: Liquid Liquid Dispersion, Mixing Vessel, Drop Size, Breakup, Coalescence, Energy Dissipation Rate, Weber Number, Power Number Whentwo immiscible liquids are agitated, a dispersion is formed in which continuous breakup and coalescence of drops occur, and a dynamicequilibrium is attained betweenbreakupand coalescence after a certain time.   Drop size measurements in liquid–liquid dispersions in agitated vessels have been carried out for decades. Many correlations have been postulated for the relationship between the Sauter mean diameter (d 32) and the physical properties of the fluids, e.g. dispersed phase fraction, viscosity, density and interfacial tension.

The effect of continuous-phase viscosity on the unsteady state behavior of liquid—liquid agitated.   Focused beam reflectance measurement was used to identify the phase inversion, and particle video microscope (PVM) was employed to measure the DSD of IL-continuous dispersions. The effects of agitation speed and dispersed phase holdup on the DSD and mean droplet size were investigated. Phase inversion was found at a heptane hold-up of just. In agitated systems, the phase inversion (PI) phenomenon-the mechanism by which a dispersed phase becomes the continuous one-has been studied extensively in .
