Re: Calculating Pressure Vs. Time While Filling Tank

You can look at post here: http://forum.pipeflowcalculations.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10 This is similar problem as yours, but not exactly the same. Your equation is I think correct but have to clarify some abbrevations used: Vt - is volume of tank MWair what is for? rho * V * A = G = dm/dt is mass f...

Re: question about pipe flow

You can't calculate flow rate with data you provided. You have to know more. Regulator should keep outflow pressure at constant value regardless of inlet pressure and flow rate, so for any flow rate pressure should be at set point, if flow is within regulator capacity. If your question is how much g...

Re: Reducing pressures with Orifice Plates

Calculator gives option for enter either density or temperature. If you choose to enter density, than calculator using R is calculating T prior to other calculation is done. I can't tell you about pipe roghness you should use. I think that it is the best way to be on safe side and choose values of p...

Re: Reducing pressures with Orifice Plates

Kappa is for expansion factor ISO 5167 - Y for orifices, you have it in the right middle of this page: http://www.pipeflowcalculations.com/pipe-valve-fitting-flow/flow-in-valves-fittings.php R is simply used for calculations between rho, T and p in ideal gas state equation, depending on user inputs....

Re: Reducing pressures with Orifice Plates

Hello, Gas constant for CO2 is R=189 J/kgK and k=kappa=Cp/Cv=1.3 for CO2. These values are needed for calculation. You have table at: http://www.pipeflowcalculations.com/tables/gas.php . I suggest you to use check button with "use ISO constraint" just to be sure if calculation is within its purpose ...

New calculator – fuel combustion heat energy calculator

Fuel combustion heat energy calculator is developed for calculaton of heat energy (heat power) that is released during combustion of specied fuel for known fuel flow rate. Calculator is also suitable for inverse calculation of fuel flow rate for known heat power. Try calculator at: http://www.pipefl...

Re: Java version problems - plans to upgrade this website?

As older Java is used that means that with new Java version you can run calculators, with no problems. But for security reasons you are requested to update java to version 51 which is 1.7, at least. Update of this site is undergoing and calculators one by one will be redesigned to new technology and...

Re: nat gas pressure drop arguement

or if I used another example where the meter outlet connection was 3/4inch pipe, but the pipework required was worked out to be 1 1/4 inch, wouldn't the 3/4 inch outlet cause a huge pressure drop? and if you were only allow to have a working pressure drop of 1 millibar from meter to appliance, you ...

Re: nat gas pressure drop arguement

hi folks. can someone of higher intelligence than me please settle this argument between my friend and I. I say that. if you had for example a one inch gas pipe for 10 meters, then reduced to half inch for 2 meters and then increased back to one inch for a further 10 meters,, that there would be a ...
