Measuring Actual Plant Vacuum


Recommended Posts

Team, Need your help in measuring actual plant vacuum consumption in terms of flow. Vacuum Pump capacity is 725 acfm; motor rating is 75hp. We have measured the actual flow of the vacuum through the exhaust (Assumption: flow coming from the production floor is equal to the flow coming out from the exhaust). Is the assumption correct?

Follow-up inquiry: is the flow required by the tools in the production in terms of ACFM or SCFM?
