How to Compute Compressor Discharge Flowrate

10/24/2011 10:09 PM

Hi everyone. I would like to ask how to compute the discharge flowrate of a screw-type compressor if its free air delivery is 9.3 m3/min measured at the standard conditions of 1.0 bar absolute inlet pressure, 20 deg C cooling and air intake temperature and nominal working pressure of 7.5 bars. Assuming the actual ambient/intake condition is 1 bar absolute pressure and 35 deg C air intake temperature and nominal working pressure is 6 bars.

Thanks

I'd ask the compressor manufacturer what formula he uses.

At least roughly, PiVi/Ti = PoVo/To. (Ideal Gas Law).

Or, use a table or chart of air properties to equate the mass flow, which is the same for inlet and outlet.
