Main Question or Discussion Point
I am a non technical innovator trying to develop a new product. Can someone help me calculate pressure drop and flowrate across a cylinder packed with uniform spheres of 10mm diameter.
I found this online but unable to calculate: https://neutrium.net/fluid_flow/pressuredropthroughapackedbed/
Fluid: Air
Required flowrate: 500 CFM
Inlet Pressure: 4 to 12 inches water column
Outlet Pressure: Atmosphere
Cylinder size: 12 inch diameter
Cylinder height: 12 inches
Packed Spheres diameter: 10mm (attached is a reference of how the media is packed)
What should be the required inlet pressure to achieve a flow rate of 500 CFM ?
or
What will be the flow rate of inlet pressure is 4 inches water column ?
Earliest help/assistance appreciated. Thank you
