Topic: Re: Can you suggest motor speed and RPM for a viscosity index improver kettle?

A mixer with a 750 mm diameter pitched-blade turbine operating at 70 rpm will provide intense mixing (in a baffled tank) at the low viscosity and moderately intense mixing at the high viscosity.  A 5 hp motor is sufficient for mixer operation at 70 rpm.
