Methods that can be used to predict agitation power of the in-line rotor-stator mixers are considered in this paper. Results of experimental investigations and CFD modeling are presented and interpreted theoretically for the Silverson rotor-stator (150/250) MS mixer. Results of theoretical analysis lead to extended version of previously used correlation.
