The mixing process is a common and important process in the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries with the objective of producing suspensions and emulsions and increasing the process rate of mass and heat transfer. In this paper, the mixing process was studied during the production of paracetamol syrup in a new formula with a concentration of (10 g / 100 ml). For this purpose, a four-blade mixer was designed and the factors affecting the mixing process and the stability of the final product were studied including the mixing time and speed of rotation.
