Determining Air flowrate of air pump

Post by xiansy » Mon Mar 08, 2010 8:32 pm

I have this air pump for children bouncers,
The make is KIDPO, Model#: E.N.P. - 1 Air Pump
Electrical rating:: 115V, 60HZ, 3.5A, 245W

Does someone know the flowrate of this air pump or how to calculate it?
I do not want to spend the money for flow meter.

Thank you in advance.

Estimated maximum flow rate can be find if you devide motor power with pressure change. Also, energy losses should be taken into account, so flow rate is 10-20% smaller.

But if you don't know pressure, than it is difficult to know.
