Among the main advantages of impinging stream systems including liquid-solid phases, mention can be made of increase in the relative velocity between solid particles and liquid phase, increase in the residence time of the particles due to the fluctuation of particles in the continuous phase, improvement of the effective area for mass and heat transfer phenomena, and the maximum light attraction due to the dispersion of slurry within the reactor," Seyed Javid Royaee, one of the researchers at Amir Kabir University of Technology, told INIC.
