Mission Statement: To create a side entry agitator test stand that allows the user to measure and calculate axial and tangential components of fluid forces, torque, and impeller speed on the motor, impeller, and shaft, incorporating a wide range of adjustable parameters.
Four Most Important Customer Needs:
GraphicalRepresentation of Pairwise Comparison
Power Law Distribution
By designing for only 40% of the Engineering Metrics,
We’ll gain 65% of the advantages of designing
for all the Engineering Metrics
Top (5) Most Important Engineering Metrics
Explanation of this sub-system & components:
Shaft: Transmits torque & angular velocity via the motor & impeller
Coupler: Transmits power between the motor output shaft & shaft
Motor: Provides Mechanical Energy to the system
Impeller: “Work” horse of the system: agitates the fluid to be mixed
Shaft Length = APROX. 2.25 – 5”
Set Screw Shaft Coupling
2) Motor Speed/HP Req.
3) Shaft/Motor Shaft Dia.
Based on given ID of provided impellers, two conditions could exist:
- need for a spacing collar
- need for a reducer
