An increasing number of researchers and professionals are struggling with converting processes from batch mode to continuous mode of operation. This presents us with an important question: How much of what we know about the batch system is transferable to continuous mode conditions? This paper reviews the scientific knowledge on the differences and similarities between rotor-stator mixers (also known as high-shear mixers) run in batch and continuous modes. As pointed out in the review, although rotor-stators that run in batch and continuous mode appear to be similar, substantial differences are observed in terms of power draw, pumping, turbulence, and emulsification efficiency.
