The mixing of two immiscible phases is a process commonly seen in many branches of industry. Whether it be desirable (e.g. mixing of ingredients in chemical or food industry) or undesirable (e.g. sediments or contaminants in water purification) process, it has to be taken into consideration and a detailed description would be beneficial to any end product. This paper deals with a method for observing the volume ratio of two immiscible phases from the state of total separation, during the mixing process until the state of a homogenous mixture using industrial Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) system ITS p2+. The paper also shows a great agreement between the data obtained through measurement using this method and data derived from a theoretical formula. Also using EIT the authors were able to provide additional information describing the mixing process in real time.
