This paper presents tool for analysis of CFD adapted for flows in multi-staged stirred vessels with fractal pattern baffled for industrial. In order to develop a good mixing process model for stirred tanks, several way have been investigated by using the computational fluid dynamic. Implementing fractal design into stirred tank’s baffle and impeller are believed to influence the flow characteristic inside the stirred tank. The simulation of mixing process will be conducted by using multi-stage stirred tanks. Hence, the study is to simulate a fractal pattern baffled stirred vessels with fractal base of impeller. Four models with a new concept and different design of stirred tank have been introduced and studied. The multi-stages stirred tanks will equipped with fractal base pattern concept. The simulation is carry out by using the standard k-ε turbulence model. The results will be analyze in order to compare the better method for the most effective in mixing. The flows produced in stirred tank are different and relevant with each model. The velocity profiles also give a relevant and quite impressive result by each model. At the end, the results will be examined and compared with each data that use a common type of baffle and impeller design
