Power demand of air compressor.

by Joy

what is the approximate power requirement for a screw compressor compressing 15 Nm3/min of air at 8 kg/cm2(g) pressure?

screw compressor rating for compressing 15 Nm3/min of air at 8 kg/cm2 (g) pressure

Hi Joy, nice to hear from India.

My simple answer is, I haven't a clue.

I suspect you'd need to know the efficiency of the compressor in question, and then a whole lot more about electrical power consumption than I'll ever know.

Maybe someone else reading this can chip in an answer for you. I can't provide one.
