The velocity and temperature fields of a shear thinning fluid in a co-rotating disc scraped surface heat exchanger (CDHE) are calculated using the finite element method. By tracking and timingparticles through the heat exchanger residence time and thermal time distributions are computed. The residence time distributions are compared to experimentally obtained distributions. A prediction of the heat treatment of the fluid passing through several heat exchangers inseries is obtained using the thermal time distributions.
