The rate of exchange of fluid elements between Taylor vortices was experimentally determined for low axial flow rates. A model was formulated defining the exchange coefficient appropriate for this flow system. In the laminar vortex flow region, the measured exchange coefficient increases with Re but is almost independent of Ta.
