Many times when we are working with customers we’re not always using the same units of measure that they are to describe pressure, force, flow or even temperature. And so, in order to help keep us and our customers all on the same page, we have developed some useful tools within the Knowledge Base section of our web site called Air Data.
The Air Data pages include links to pressure conversions, flow conversions, force conversions and heat conversions. We also explain in detail how to calculate air consumption and the differences between the various types of metal and non-metal piping systems that can be used in industry.
Finally, we have available various tables that describe the amount of expected pressure drop that can be expected through a pipe when various input pressures and flows are considered.
Overall, there is a lot of useful information in this part of our web site to help with compressed air system design and determining requirements for various types of end use products, like ours. We encourage everyone to check it out.
