Determine the volume (gallons) of fluid to be mixed.  Next, to select your portable mixer, determine the viscosity and refer to the tables (charts) below.  We have listed below a table of typical viscosities for various liquids for comparison.  If you have difficulty determining or estimating your fluids viscosity from the information listed below, call us for an evaluation of your application.
