Question: How can viscosity affect the design of a mixer?
Keywords: sizing,agitator,mixer,viscosity
Answer: For newtonian fluids, which will have a constant viscosity at all impeller speeds, most design correlations will perform satisfactorily for viscosities up to 5,000 cP. Above 5,000 cP, estimating errors from 20% to 50% can result in the sizing of the agitator.
