Pressure changer

Pressure changer

Pressure changer

(OP)
Could somebody please tell me how I can vary (increase/decrease)the pressure in a pump/motor setup to compensate for the high and low pressures at the various operating speeds.

RE: Pressure changer

Why not a pump discharge control valve that controls pressure?

RE: Pressure changer

If you have a positive displacement pump you need to design the motor to give max required power for the max pressure.Pressure can be reduced IF REQUIRED by resetting the built in by pass(pressure relief valve).

RE: Pressure changer

(OP)
Yes, but how could I increase the pressure as well. It needs to be efficient

RE: Pressure changer

Variable speed control will change the head of the pump in accordance with:

Q: flow
H: head
P: Power
N: speed

subscript
n:nominal
x:selected spped

Qx/Qn=Nx/Nn

Hx/Hn=(Nx/Nn)^2

Px/Pn=(Nx/Nn)^3

You can get variable frequency control for all pump sizes allthough the (motor control) priciple may vary.

Grundfos (eg) deliver small variable frequency control pumps with build in control, check their web page: www.grundfos.com

White Paper - Considerations for choosing a 3D printing technology
The adoption of 3D printing into major companies’ product development life cycles is a testament to the technology’s incredible benefits to consumers, designers, engineers and manufacturers. While traditional production methods have limitations in manufacturability, 3D printing provides unparalleled design freedom due to the additive method of building parts layer by layer. Download Now
