The use of a radioactive tracer (bromine 82) to study flow patterns in a sugar subsider
Australian Atomic Energy Commission
The uses of radioactive bromine 82 to trace flow patterns in a sugar clarifier is described. The results show that the raw solution goes first to the bottom of the subsider then rises essentially as a layer becoming progressively more diffuse by mixing with solutions above and below. The experiment was successful and improvements in technique for future investigations are proposed.
