aeration number 1Aeration Number, abbreviated as \(N_a\), a dimensionless number, is used for the agitated mixing of gas and liquids.

 

Aeration Number formula

\(\large{ N_a = \frac{ Q }{ n \; d^3 }  }\) 

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ N_a }\) = Aeration number \(\large{dimensionless}\)
\(\large{ Q }\) = volumetric flow rate of gas \(\large{\frac{ft^3}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m^3}{s}}\)
\(\large{ n }\) = rotational speed \(\large{\frac{deg}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{rad}{s}}\)
\(\large{ d }\) = diameter of impeller \(\large{in}\) \(\large{mm}\)
