I am looking for tabulated values of friction losses for air in a vacuum? I have seen them for water under compression (i.e. head loss thru a reducer, elbow, fitting, etc...) and was hoping there was something out there for vacuum as well.
My end objective is to make sure the vacuum source and accumulator (for our pick-and-place mechanism with 200 suction cups) get sized properly.
