An attempt is made here to describe distribution of residence times of a fluid in a nonideal flow mixer for turbulent flow of the charge, i.e. for the case when the flow velocity exhibits random fluctuations. The analysis is based on the assumption that the flow of fluid in mixer may be considered as a stationary Markov's process and is aimed at application of the mixer as a linear filter.
