Topic: Re: What are the power numbers for standard agitator impellers?

posed by 
Typical turbulent power numbers for different impellers are as follows: Pitched-blade (4 blades, 45 deg angle, W/D = 0.2)                        1.37Straight-blade (4 blades, W/D = 0.2)                                           3.96Hydrofoil (typical 3 blades, narrow blades)                                    0.31Saw-tooth disperser blade (depends on number of teeth, height of teeth, pitch of teeth)          0.35 to 0.88
Anchor impellers are usually designed on the basis of a viscous power number and depend on geometry, blade width, height, and wall gap.
