Plant Vacuum Flow Measurement

Recommended Posts

Guest Jike Alcain

Good day to All! Pls share your ideas on how we can measure the vacuum flow rate of the pipeline. Currently we have 2 vacuum pumps running rated at 725 acfm each but not sure if what is the current flow demand. Flow rate data of machines being supported by the vacuum pumps are not certain so we don't have accurate method on how to know the current flow.

Since this is a vacuum, can i drill a hole (1/4" dia.) in the main pipe of 16" diameter temporarily then measure the air velocity/flow inside? Will it greatly affect the operation? Pls. advise.
