Gas discharge flow calculator

Postby Francisco » Thu Jul 07, 2016 11:01 pm

I keep getting an error message when I try to do the flow calculation indicating that the pipe resistance in terms of length to diameter is too high, giving me outrageous K value.

I have 50 ft of 0.25” hose, Gas Pressure at inlet of Hose is 20 psig, the outlet is atmospheric pressure. I need to figure out the gas flow.

I know that the gas flows, otherwise my equipment would have shut down.

I have attached the snip for the inputs.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Francisco
