The scale-up of pharmaceutical laboratory mixers to a production tank is not a trivial task as it requires a thorough understanding of complex turbulent and multiphase processes impacting oxygen mass transfer. The main objective of this study is to understand the impact of agitation speed and gas flow rate on the gas holdup and mass transfer coefficient, which are two critical parameters that help process engineers understand mass transfer performance.
