Abstract [en]

The characterization of the vibromixer principles, in particular FUNDAMIX® technology produced bythe Swiss company Dr.Mueller AG, is the focus of this study. Tests varying the vibration’s frequencies andamplitudes, as well as the mixing plate geometry, in terms of number of holes and their diameter, are done.Interesting results regarding these parameters are obtained, proving problem complexity and previousexperience. Higher amplitudes and frequencies result in a better fluid dynamic performance of thevibromixer, i.e. flow rate formed due to pumping capacity of the plate and creating the liquid recirculation.The available total area of the holes should be limited too. Different fluid viscosities (up to 1212mPa/s) aretested and possible carbon fiber improvements in the shaft production briefly discussed. Finally, aComputational Fluid Dynamic approach is done and possible further researches are covered.
