Get with the venturi manufacturer. They can tell you what their products are capable of doing.

Don't take this wrong but you cannot calculate suction. A vacuum does not pull. I know the word conveys the idea in a short simple term, but the idea is incorrect. Even in a vacuum chamber the particle pressure empties the chamber.

I understood engineering much better when I didn't think: suction, cold, vacuum, etc.

If you already do this my apologies, I am just trying to keep you from the faults I have learned to avoid (most of the time).
