||Highly reactive liquid substances are stored in refrigerated tanks or tanks equipped with agitators to prevent unwanted reactions. In case of failure of the cooling system or the agitator, a reaction inhibitor is injected. The influence of the viscosity of the liquid in a storage tank on the dispersion of inhibitor was determined by experiments and mathematical simulation. Cylindrical tanks of various size and nozzle arrangements were studied. The results are shown in diagrams. They will enable designers to place injectors so as to ensure a uniformly adequate concentration of inhibitors in tanks.
