The greatest part of industrial mass transfer is based on continuous transportation of different substances throughout especially constructed installations. In that kind of practice, a flow of such mass in each part determines the process unit and can be described by the residence time distribution (RTD) of the substance inside this unit. This parameter may be evaluated by the properly arranged tracer experiment. It is worthwhile to notice that flow components are labeling for a sufficiently long time for offering a lot of advanced techniques fitted to the particular circumstances.
