I am designing an Air Lift Pump: a submerged pipe that has outside source of compressed air introduced in order to raise the working fluid using buoyancy and expansion effects. I have found some technical resources, which have been fairly useful but I was wondering if anyone had any practical experience or some tips for working with these devices.
I know that these devices may not be traditional 'pumps' but I thought this forum would be a good shot at getting opinions.
Thanks to all.
