Flow sensitive applications Gas Dispersions Chemical Reactions Often processes are a combination of all three. However, while flow sensitive applications form 90% of all processing duties, including Leaching, CIP, CIL, Crude oil storage, Pulp Mixing etc, the section of the market involving the largest agitators is generally gas dispersion. Chemical reactions can require either Flow producing, or Gas dispersing, impellers.
