How can I design sizing of a jet mixer? what are the factors that determine its efficiency? Can a jet mixer also operate with Nitrogen? And how to calculate the consumption of Nitrogen? Is it better than conventional mechanical agitators for highly viscous fluids with congealing nature?

You ask several questions regarding a "jet mixer". Is this a device to physically mix a slurry or are you referring to a "jet cooker" used in ethanol to cook the grain mash which injects steam for the purpose of starch conversion?
