Topic: Re: How do I calculate the agitator power in terms of increasing volume?

The high viscosity, 30,000 cp, you describe does not require baffles, but does not increase the power requirements much either.  The power requirement for a retreat-curve impeller (RCI) at 96 rpm is about 5,800 Watts.  Increasing the volume will have little effect on the amount of power required for the impeller.
