in cylindrical tanks the baffles should be evenly spaced. the number of baffles needed depends on liquid characteristics the degree of agitation (reynolds number) desired and the volume of the tank. typically four baffle plates are used but the number can vary due to the degree of agitation required.
mixing tanks can be supplied with integrated baffling to enhance and accelerate mixing. fiberglass anti-vortex baffles minimize issues during agitation. flat plate baffles are positioned to oppose agitation direction specified by customer. for best results four baffles are recommended per tank.
for larger tanks however it becomes expensive to go with the heavier-duty mixer and installing baffles is more cost effective. baffle design. baffles are long flat plates that attach to the side of the tank to prevent swirling & promote top to bottom fluid movement.
baffles are flow-directing or obstructing vanes or panels used in some industrial process vessels (tanks) such as shell and tube heat exchangers chemical reactors and static mixers.baffles are an integral part of the shell and tube heat exchanger design. a baffle is designed to support tube bundles and direct the flow of fluids for maximum efficiency.
