How do I establish the size of the nozzle to use with my Cat Pump?
How do I calculate my RPM for a specific flow ?
Relation flow and RPM
Cat Pumps are volumetric pumps. The flow of the pump is determinated by the speed. To have less flow you need to reducce the speed of your pump by means of frequency control or pulleys.
Example: 15 l/min at 1450 RPM. You desire only 10 l/min.
1450/15 x 10 = 967 RPM
How do I calculate the power of my motor ?
Motor power - How to calculate the kW or HP The formula is: flow in l/min x pressure in bar x 0,00275 = HP x 0,736 = kW Example: 15 l/min - 100 bar 15 x 100 x 0,00275 = 4,125 PK x 0,736 = 3,036 kW
Your Pressure (P=bar)
Your Flow (Q=l/min))
Result in kW
