Re: How do I calculate the agitator power in terms of increasing volume?6 July 2010 at 1:29pm
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.
