Batch mixing generally refers to mixing processes in vessels and ITS tomography instrumentation provides a tool to understand, optimise and control mixing. Tomography sensors take data from between 200 to 2,400 measurement points in a single snapshot, thus providing a sound basis to monitor changes in concentration of different materials and so quantify mixing. Sensors can be retrofitted through using probe based instruments, scanning the z-axis (which usually presents the key challenge to effective mixing). Alternatively, an array of up to 8 circular planes, each with 16 electrodes can be used to provide a more complete picture of the mixing process.
