Capacities of compressed air pipelines - pressure ranging 5 - 250 psi (0.5 - 17 bar).
Applied Pressure - psi
The diagram below can be used to estimate the flow capacity in a compressed air pipeline with pressure ranging 5 - 250 psi.
- schedule 40 pipe
- for pipes ranging size 1/8" to 1/2" - pressure drop 10% of applied pressure per 100 feet of pipe
- for pipes ranging size 3/4" to 3" - pressure drop 5% of applied pressure per 100 feet of pipe
