The aim of our research was to study the axial, radial and tangential solid phase concentration profiles in a mixed vessel. The conductivity method was used for the concentration measurement. We accomplished the measurement in eleven points in five heights above the vessel bottom. The points were situated on three vertical planes passing through the vessel axis and on five values of radii. It was determined by means of statistic test of variance if it was possible to measure the concentration only in one point in each distance from the vessel bottom and neglect the radial and tangential concentration differences.
