Calculation of specific power input in flotation (No replies)

Hi Guys,

I recently ran a concentrate production campaign and I am a bit stuck on how to CALCULATE THE SPECIFIC POWER INPUT IN THE ROUGHER STAGE BASED ON THE KW RATING OF THE MECHANISM AND THE VOLUME OF THE FLOTATION CELL EXPRESSES AS ( KW/M3) – SPECIFIC ENERGY.

I ran the Rougher float in a 25l cell (0.37kW motor) at 36.5Hz? How do I get the specific energy?
