Compressor / blower - Power equations |
P = (Q x H) / (6.1 x n) | ||
Where | ||
P | = | Power (kW) |
Q | = | Air flow (m3 / minute) |
H | = | System head (m) =
sum of resistance head = suction head + pipe losses + device losses (eg diffuser) + depth of water |
n | = | Efficiency of compressor / blower typically 60% - 70% |
