The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model has been developed in order to describe the mixing behavior of the liquid components and scale up the dissolver construction to industrial application. The Sliding Mesh approach has been selected for simulating rotating. For the numerical calculation of multiphase flow VOF multiphase model based on the Euler-Euler approach has been used.
