Example - Pressure Drop in Compressed Air Pipeline

The pressure drop in a compressed air pipe line

  • length 100 m
  • air flow 500 l/s
  • inside diameter 100 mm
  • working pressure 9 bar gauge

can be estimated in the diagram by drawing a line from the length line through the air flow volume line to the reference line. From the point on the reference line draw a line through the pipe diameter line to the reference line. From the working pressure line draw a line through the point on the reference line to the pressure drop line.

As indicated below the pressure drop can be estimated to 0.07 bar.
