Flocculation Power CalculatorPosted by Dinesh on
Use the simple wastewater calculator to calculate power required for flocculation.
- If the flows to the rapid mix and flocculation basin vary significantly, or turn down capability is desired, a variable speed drive should be provided for each mixer and flocculator.
- It should be noted that the above analysis provides only approximate values for mixer and flocculator sizes. Mixing is in general a 'black art' and a mixing manufacturer is usually consulted regarding the best type and size of mixer or flocculator for a perticular application.
P = G2 * ? * V
P = G2 × ? × Vwhere,
- G = mean velocity gradient
- V = volume of mixing tank
- ? = dynamic viscosity
- P = power requirement
