Calculation of the minimum duct cross-section

Min. cross-section d. exhaust vent

0,00 m2


  1. Thumb value from practice: flow rate 3 to 5 m/s.
  2. At higher flow velocities, a support fan is required in the duct.


If the heat dissipation within a compressor room is too low, heat builds up.
The result: The room temperature rises unacceptably and endangers the operational safety of the compressed air station.
