23 Apr We are developing a high purity hydrogen system (between the source and fab equipment) and need to determine the tube sizes. I have the peak flow rates and source/system pressures. How do I calculate this?
The short answer is that there are software based programs that utilize the Colebrook and Darcy Equations that can provide you an answer but you will need a layout to estimate the tube lengths and the number and types of fittings and valves in the system.
