Re: How do we mix a solid slurry and solvent for best results?21 July 2011 at 1:29pm
A 5,000 kg batch of 1.5 sp. gr. slurry will have a volume of 3,333 cu. meters. For good mixing intensity, a 4.4 meter diameter 4-blade, pitched blade impeller operating at 25 rpm will require a 250 hp (185 KW) motor.
The answers by this expert are based on the best available interpretation of the information provided. The consequences of the application of this information are the responsibility of the user. If clarification is needed, please submit a further question.
We are mixing a solid slurry and solvent and need 2 micron size. What is the motor hp when the solid slurry's viscosity is 5,000cp? Its specific gravity is 1.5 and its total material weight is 5000 kg (70% solid slurry and 30% solvent.)
Have an insight or suggestion?
