Flow in an Air Ringmain System

  1. Aug 30, 2016 #1
    Hi All,

    Quick question about the flow velocity in an air ringmain piping system. does the flow velocity in the ringmain pipe decrease every time it passes an outlet?

    Is the "outlet" closed or open?

    there are numerous outlets which each have a flow control valve (an orifice)

    So, in principle flow can be increased by induction going past an open "outlet?"

    Apologies for the late reply.

    Yes, the flow can be adjusted at each outlet to suit the users requirements. I have to provide the same flow at each outlet around the ring main system, my worry is that the furthest outlets from the compressor wont receive enough flow.
