Choked flow

    Is it possible to have choked flow in a 1/4" diameter pressure regulator with pressure difference of 3.5bar?

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Sure. It depends on the pressure ratio across the orifice, and if the output is atmospheric, an input of 3.5 bar is more than enough to create choked flow.
