Topic: Re: Hydraulic load factor for water, oil mix

posed by 
The following estimates should answer the questions:
Lateral hydraulic load: 59 NShaft bending load: 132 N mTorsional load: 46 N m
Shaft diameter estimate: 31 mmShaft natural frequency: between 100 and 200 rpmIf used with a variable speed drive, do not allow the mixer to operate near the natural frequency. These estimates are based on the limited information supplied in the question and should be reviewed by an engineer when more complete detailed information about the mixer is available.
