Response to a good example
A pressure acts on teh diameter at which the sealing occurs. Where teh pressure differential exists.
The 442 pounds comes from my limited understanding of your description of the tube diameter and 1,000psi. The actual force in the Hipac assembly at a full 3,000psi is only 147 pounds. nothing really.
The disco guage is sealing at a diameter of say 0.375 and a pressure of 2,000psi acting on that
means there will be a force on teh gauge threads of 222 pounds.
The size of a port has zero to do with reducing pressure when no flow exists through the port.
when there is flow through a port that is a different topic.
- in the hipac case there would be flow through the port - robny on Feb 8, 2012, 8:36 PM
- 222 pounds force came from your 'example' of the Disco gauge - Glover, Walter on Feb 8, 2012, 9:00 PM
- """but due to the choked design the pressure at the seal will be less than the static - robny on Feb 8, 2012, 9:10 PM
- Really? - Glover, Walter on Feb 8, 2012, 9:18 PM
- i lost you at my reference at the potential reduction of the hipac xfer - robny on Feb 8, 2012, 9:41 PM
- You lost me at hello - Glover, Walter on Feb 8, 2012, 9:51 PM
- well let bygones be bygones , funny how the true engineers - robny on Feb 8, 2012, 9:54 PM
- 'True engineers' see this as a waste of time, I don't - Glover, Walter on Feb 8, 2012, 10:01 PM
- well fine walter , that was my original intent when i warned about hipac - robny on Feb 8, 2012, 10:07 PM
- There is no risk to prompt such a warning hence my attempt to correct you - Glover, Walter on Feb 8, 2012, 10:31 PM
- 'builds'. - robny on Feb 8, 2012, 10:37 PM
