Stirring allows for the homogenization of mixable liquids and the stir-up of solid particles in liquids. Differences in temperature or concentration are balanced more efficiently during stirring. Additionally, the stirring of liquids accelerates the dissolution processes or increases the speed of chemical reactions. Stirring is used in all areas of the pharmaceutical and food industries, biotechnology, and wherever chemical products are processed and manufactured.
Classic stirring is a suitable mixing process at times when the liquid's flow or low shear stress is enough for the particular application.
