Re: Extractor airflow calculation

Hi Mark, Cheers for the picture of the motor. I spoke to a helpful chap at an extraction place who did me the sums and it came out about the same. He reckoned it would be OK on the 4 sider which needs about 2800 cubic meters and hour, if the run was short, minimum bends etc. Motor is a lot smaller t...

Extractor airflow calculation

Anyone know how to calculate the air volume an extractor will pull. I have found a 4 bag system at a good price but am unsure as to air volume. The plate on the motor says
3kw 2800 rpm running on a 200 mm inlet.
Any help most appreciated.

Morrells paint would be a good place to start. They used to run a wood finishing course, but I think you would have to come over to the UK for that. Plus they also make pretty much all you need paint and lacquer wise.
