INTERFACIAL SURFACE GENERATOR Filed July 18, 1966 1 NVEN TOR. R1 GAO/O E. Harder" KM A.

HGEN T United States Patent 3,404,869 INTERFACIAL SURFACE GENERATOR Richard E. Harder, Williamsburg, Va., assignor to The Dow Chemical Company, Midland, Mich., a corporation of Delaware Filed July 18, 1966, Ser. No. 565,890 Claims. (Cl. 259-4) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A static mixer is disclosed which consists of a number of chambers having two or more inlets and two or more outlets, the inlets and outlets being non-coplanar and the planes intersecting an axis of flow. A number of. such elements are series-connected to provide a mixer which creates layers within a stream and the mixing or layering action is independent of throughput below the region of turbulent flow.

This invention relates to an interfacial surface generator, and more particularly relates to an interfacial surface generator which is easily constructed.

An interfacial surface generator is a static device which mixes fluids by passage of the fluid through the interfacial surface generator. Such mixing is obtained by division of the stream into a plurality of su-bstrearn or branches, recombination of the substreams into a main stream and subsequent division, repositioning and recombination until the desired degree of mixing has been obtained. Several interfacial surface generators are known and set forth in US. Letters Patent 3,015,453, 3,182,965 and 3,195,865. Such devices employ baffles positioned within a conduit to provide the desired division, repositioning and recombination.

It would be desirable if there were available an interfacial surface generator which could be prepared from readily available materials and the degree of mixing of streams controlled by ready variation of the number of stages.

These benefits and other advantages in accordance with the present invention are achieved in an interfacial surface generator which comprises in cooperative combination a plurality of housings; each of the housings defining an internal cavity; each housing having an inlet end and an outlet end; the inlet end having at least first and second inlets; the outlet end having at least first and second outlets; the first and second outlets of a first housing being connected to the second and first inlets of a second housing; the first and second outlets of the second housing being connected to the second and first inlets of a third housing.

Further features and advantages of the present invention will become more apparent from the following specification taken in connection with the drawing wherein:

In FIGURE 1 there is schematically represented a housing for an interfacial surface generator in accordance with the present invention.

FIGURE 2 depicts one manner of connecting housings in accordance with the present invention.

FIGURES 3 and 4 are alternate embodiments of housings for the practice of the present invention.

In FIGURE 1 there is depicted a housing generally designated by the reference numeral 10. The housing comprises a hollow body 11. The body 11 has a first or inlet end 12 and a second or outlet end 14. The housing 10 has a generally tetrahedral configuration. The body 11 defines an internal space or chamber 15 having a direction of flow or longitudinal axis A. In operative communication with the inlet end 12 of the housing 10 are first, second, third and fourth inlets or conduits 17, 18, 19 and 20, respectively. The outlet end 14 of the housing 10 has a plurality of outlets or discharge conduits 22, 23, 24 and 25, respectively. The inlet conduits 17, 1 8, 19 and 20 and the outlet conduits 22, 23, 24 and 25 are all in communication with the chamber 15. Fluid entering the conduits 17, 18, 19 and 20 is discharged from the conduits 22, 23, 24 and 25, the inlet conduits lying in a plane generally normal to a plane containing the outlet conduits. Fluid flowing into the inlet conduits is discharged from the outlet conduits in such a manner that each of the outlet conduits contains a portion of the material from each of the inlet conduits. This phenomenon occurs even at extremely low flow rates assuming generally similar 'viscosities and flow characteristics.

FIGURE 2 schematically depicts an interfacial surface generator in accordance with the present invention. The interfacial surface generator is generally designated by the reference numeral 30. The generator 30 comprises a plurality of housings 31, 32 and 33. A discharge header is designated by the reference numeral 34. The housing 31 has a plurality of inlet conduits 36, 37, 38 and 39 and discharge conduits 40, 41, 42 and 43. The conduits 40, 41, 42 and 43 may be considered as first, third, fourth and second discharge conduits, respectively. A like housing 32 having fourth, first, second and third inlet conduits 46, 47, 48 and 49, respectively is disposed generally adjacent the outlet conduits 40, 41, 42 and 43 of the housing 31. By means of suitable conduits beneficially in many instances flexible conduits, the first discharge conduit of the housing 31 is in operative communication with the second inlet conduit of the housing 3.2. The second discharge conduit of the housing 31 is in operative communication with the first inlet conduit 47 of the housing 32. The third discharge conduit 41 of the housing 31 is in operative communication with the fourth inlet conduit of the housing 32 and the fourth outlet conduit of the housing 31 is in operative communication with the third inlet of the second housing 32. The housing 32 has first, third, fourth, and second discharge conduits 50, 51, 52 and 53, respectively. The third housing 33 is positioned generally adjacent the housing 32. The housing 33 has fourth, first, second and third inlet conduits 55, 56, 57 and 58, respectively. The outlet conduits 50, 51, 52 and 53 of the housing 32 communicate with the second inlet conduit 57, fourth inlet conduit 55, the third inlet conduit 58 and the first inlet conduit 56, respectively, of the housing 33. The housing 33 has first, second, third and fourth outlet conduits 60, 61, 62 and 63, respectively, which enter a common header or discharge 34.

The method of operation of the apparatus of the present invention is substantially that set forth in U.S. Letters Patent 3,051,453, 3,182,965 and 3,195,864. Fluid, on entering any one or more of the conduits 36, 37, 38 or 39, is discharged from the conduits 40, 41, 42 and 43 of the housing 31. If fluid is passed through all of the conduits, each of the discharge conduits will contain a portion of the fluid from each of the inlet conduits. The streams flowinig from the discharge conduits are then repositioned relative to one another and flow into the housing 32. The discharge conduits 50, 51, 52 and 53 each contain a portion of the stream from each of the inlet conduits. Similar division and recombination occurs in the transfer of the fluid from the housing 32 to the housing 33 through the outlets 50, 51, 52 and 53 and to the inlet conduits 55, 56, 57 and 58. A similar repositioning occurs by terminating the outlet conduits 60, 61, 62 and 63 in a manner where initially adjacent portions of the stream are repositioned between other portions. Below the region of turbulent flow, mixing in the apparatus of 3 FIGURE 2 is substantially independent of flow rate. If the velocity of material flowing therethrough becomes turbulent an increase will be noticed in the degree of mixing and a marked rise in the power required to pump fluid through the apparatus.

FIGURE 3 depicts an alternate housing which may be employed in the apparatus of the present invention. The housing is generally designated by the reference numeral 70. The housing 70 depicts a generally cylindrical hollow body 71 defining a cavity 72 therein. A first or terminal portion 73 closes one end of the body 72. A plurality of inlet conduits 74, 75, 76 and 77 are disposed within the end 73. A second end 78 is disposed opposite the end 73 and serves to close the remaining end of the hollow cylindrical body 71. Discharge conduits 79, 80, 81 and 82 are disposed in the second end 78.

FIGURE 4 depicts an alternate housing which may be employed in the apparatus of the present invention. The housing is generally designated by the reference numeral 70a. The housing 70a depicts a generally rectangular hollow body 71a defining a cavity 72a therein. A first or terminal portion 73a closes one end of the body 72a. A plurality of inlet conduits 74a, 75a, 76a and 77a are disposed within the end 73a. A second end 78a is disposed opposite the end 73a and serves to close the remaining end of the hollow rectangular body 71a. Discharge conduits 79a, 80a, 81a and 82a are disposed in the second end 78a.

Generally, the embodiment of FIGURES 1 and 2 employing a tetrahedral housing is preferred as the tetrahedral housing provides a minimal region in which material may hang up, that is, the tetrahedral embodiment provides generally streamlined flow whereas the embodiments of FIGURES 3 and 4 result in relatively slow movement of the materials in corners adjacent the inlets or outlets. In systems which are non-reactive and inventory can be tolerated, the embodiments of FIGURES 3 and 4 are satisfactory and possess the distinct advantage of ease of fabrication. However, if uniform flow through the system is desired, a generally tetrahedral housing or at least a housing having a generally tetrahedral cavity such as the housing of FIGURE 1 is employed with benefit.

As is apparent from the foregoing specification, the present invention is susceptible of being embodied with various alterations and modifications which may differ particularly from those that have been described in the preceding specification and description. For this reason,

4L it is to be fully understood that all of the foregoing is intended to be merely illustrative and is not to be construed or interpreted as being restrictive or otherwise limiting of the present invention, excepting as it is set forth and defined in the hereto-appended claims.
