Emglo CFM Output at 90psi wanted

by Bill K

Emglo CFM Output at 90psi wanted, from known 8.6 cfm @ 125psi

I know from a Emglo/Jenny chart that cfm is as rated for my Emglo model KU pump as; @ 5.5 HP (Gas) = 8.6 CFM @ 125 PSI (Delivered) @ 1150rpm pump speed.

This is a single stage pump.

Now the question I need to know is, what would be the cfm (delivered) at 90psi (35psi lower) assuming same rpm's on the pump. I doubt the hp will matter but I'm running with a 8hp gas motor, so 2.5hp more could only help? (even a figure for 100psi would help, 25psi lower)

I might be too optimistic but seems like at 90psi cfm should be up in the 12cfm output range? Emglo had no figures on the cfm at 90psi and wouldn't estimate.

not much gain i think?
by: bill k

was looking in the northern cat. and see a air comp. with 8.2cfm at 90psi and 7.9cfm at 130. only a .3cfm diff. ;-( guess i'm stuck with quality not quantity ;-). I can run continous at 100psi, thats a plus...

Convert air pressure to flow
by: Bill

Well Bill K., this is no easy conversion.

See the sitemap page on this site, look under CFM / SCFM / flow issues etc, and visit the page Convert Pressure to flow.

Good luck with that.
