Corrected Blow Force at Standard Conditions (from ANSI B175.2)

  1. Jun 21, 2016 #1
    We have a blowing performance measurement test (from ANSI B175.2) we perform to calculate flow rate and velocity with. The calculation spreadsheet is attached.

    The inputs are:
    • Nozzle Diameter (m)
    • blow force (N)
    • atmosphere temperature (°C)
    • atmosphere pressure (hPa)
    • atmosphere humidity (%)
    • air stream temperature (°C)
    And outputs (corrected for conditions) are:
    • Average Velocity (m/s)
    • Peak Theoretical Velocity (m/s)
    • Flow Rate (m3/h)
    I'd another output which would be corrected blow force (at standard conditions). This would be the blow force I would obtain if I took the same fan and tested it under the following conditions:
    • atmosphere temperature = 25°C
    • atmosphere pressure = 990 hPa
    • atmosphere humidity = 0 %
    It would be easier to know which fan is most powerful (most blow force) even if you test them under different conditions. A lot of fans have different nozzle diameters and sometimes it turns out that the Flow Rate on one fan is higher but the Velocity is lower. It'd be simpler to just compare one number.

    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?
