Re: How do I calculate agitator power?16 October 2012 at 10:18amSome details are not clear from the drawing, so some assumptions were made. The horizontal blades (pitched blades) at each level in the drawing represent two blades mounted at a 45 degree angle. The drawing is approximately to scale, so all of the blades are 100 mm wide.
With those dimensional assumptions, Case 1 will require about 22 KW and Case 2 will require about 20 KW.
