Step 1: General variables for calculations that normally should not be changed.
Pipe Friction Coefficient - λ
Density of Fluid - ρf
Step 2: Enter the amount of flow needed and the size of piping.
Hydraulic (inside) Diameter - dh
Step 3: Calculation of pressure loss based on the length of piping, elbows, and elevation the water is pumped (lift).
Total Length of Straight Pipe - l
Qty 90º Elbows
Qty 45º Elbows
Step 4: Based on the above information, this is the quantity of Infusinator™ nozzles that should be installed and minimum recommended pump capacity. The higher the pressure, the more water and air the nozzle will produce, but also requires more energy.
Pressure at Nozzle
Qty of Infusinator™ Nozzles
Pump must produce at least
9.5 gpm with
5.1 ft (2.2 psi) of vertical head pressure.
Air injected is approx.
0.2 cfm (at an approx. depth of
