EXAMPLE 1:

Select a Laminar Flow element for the following conditions:

The pressure of the flowing AIR is 29.92” Hg. Abs.

The temperature of the AIR is 70°F.

Since this flow is at standard condition, the Laminar Flow Element can be selected

Diretly from the capacity chart.

The Laminar flow Element selected in this example would be a Model 50MW20-1-1/2.

If we wish to compute the approximate differential pressure that this selection would

Develop, we can use the equation:

Diff. Pressure =

SCFM*

* Catalog ratings for Laminar Flow Elements selected.

Diff. Pressure = 15 x 8 = 5.454 H20 Differential.

A check should be made for Laminar Flow by calculating the Reynold’s Number. See Section IV.

THAN 29.92 AND 70°F.

When the flow is given in another standard of SCFM

Of air or some other gas, and the operating pressure and

temperature are not at 29.92 and 70°F, then the equivalent

SCFM air flow at 29.92 and 70°F must be computed as though

The laminar flow element were flowing air under (Meriam)

Standard conditions. To do this, use the equation below:

Pg 530 181.87

SCFM* = The equivalent amount of air in SCFM, if the flowing conditions were air,

Flowing through the Laminar Flow Element under a pressure of 29.92” Hg. Abs. And at 70°F.

SCFM = Standard Cubic Feet per Minute of gas referenced to base conditions of 70°F

and 29.92” Hg. Absolute.

Pg = Pressure of the following gas in Inches Hg. Abs.

Tg = Temperature of the flowing gas in degrees Rankin (°R). (°R = 460 + Temperature in °F)

Hg = Viscosity of the gas at the flowing Temperature, in micropoise

EXAMPLE 2.

Select a Laminar Flow Element for the following conditions: Upon examing the ratings for the various

Laminar Flow Elements we can see that

The gas flowing is HELIUM at a flow rate of 1.25 SCFM. the Model 50MJ10-10 will handle this

flow since it is rated at 1.6 SCFM * @

The pressure of the HELIUM gas is 1.4 PSIG (= 32.781” Hg. Abs.) 8” H20 differential pressure.

The temperature of the HELIUM is 90°F (=550°R) A check should be made for Laminar Flow

The viscosity of HELIUM @ 90°F is 201.13 micropoise. By calculating the Reynold’s Number.

From the above equation we can calculate the equivalent SCFM air See Section IV.

Flow as:

SCFM* = 1.25 x 29.92 x 550 x 201.13

32.78 530 181.88 = 1.309

OR CFM UNITS.

When the air or gas flow is given in other than

SCFM*, then the SCFM value must be computed

from the equations below. The sizing of a laminar

flow element can then proceed as in Example 2.

Example 3:

Select a Laminar Flow Element for the following conditions:

The pressure of the HELIUM gas is 1.4 PSIG ( =32.781 Hg. Abs.)

The temperature of the HELIUM is 90°F. (=550°R)

The viscosity of HELIUM @ 90°F is 201.13 micropoise.

From the above equation for actual cubic feet per minute, we can calcualte SCFM:

550

From this value we can proceed to calculate the Laminar Flow Element rating as in Section II.

LFE Data Sheet

FOR THE LAMINAR FLOW ELEMENT SELECTED

Consideration must be given to the Reynolds number for the

Maximum flow condition. Meriam LFE elements will produce linear flow

Characteristics when the Reynolds number is 150 at 4” differential and

300 at 8” differential.

It should be pointed out that true linearity will not be retained at elevated

Reynolds number. However, a calibration made at the operating condition will

Be fully usable and repeatable.

To calculate the approximate Reynolds number for the LFE selected, use the equation:

Hg

Where:

Rd= Reynold’s Number

Sg= Specific gravity of the flowing gas.

Pg=Pressure of the flowing gas in inches Hg. Abs.

Diff = Differential pressure calculated for the Laminar Flow Element selected

Hg = Viscosity of the gas at the flowing temperature, in micropoise

201.13

EXAMPLE 4:

Select a Laminar Flow Element for the following conditions:

The gas flowing is ARGON at a flow rate of 0.9 SCFM.

The pressure of the flowing ARGON is 20 psig (=70.64” HgAbs.).

The temperature of the ARGON is 60°F (= 520°R).

The viscosity of ARGON at 60°F is 222.51 micropoise.

The specific gravity of ARGON at standard conditions is 1.380.

70.64 530 181.87

This flow rate could be determined by our Model 50MJ10-11 which has a rating of

0.7 SCFM* @ 8” H20.

The differential pressure expected would be equal to:

0.7

If we now compute the Reynold’s number for these conditions we find that:

222.51

This Reynold’s number is too high even though the flow rate calculation gave us an acceptable

Differential pressure. Therefore, we will have to size the LFE with a larger size or the Model

50MJ10 Type 10. The same calculations will give us a differential of approximately 2.29

and a Reynold’s number of 228. This model would be acceptable for the application.
