Flocculation Power Calculator

Posted 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.
The power required for flocculation is P = G2 * ? * V


P = G2 × ? × V

  • G = mean velocity gradient
  • V = volume of mixing tank
  • ? = dynamic viscosity
  • P = power requirement
