Understanding Pump Ratios

Understanding Pump Ratios


18 November 2021

 

What is a Pneumatic Pump?

Before jumping into pump ratios, it is vital to have some understanding about pneumatic pumps. Pneumatic pumps are pumps that use the forces of compressed gas to generate mechanical effects on the system. When pneumatic pumps are used in industrial applications, they involve the use of compressed gas to provide the desired force that is used to move fluids through a piping system.   .

These pumps can be of two types –

  • A Piston Pump
  • A Double Diaphragm Pump

In both the pumps, the basic principle of air motor operation is the same. The only difference is that in a double diaphragm pump, the air piston is different from to a standard piston configuration used in normal Air Operated Piston Pumps. Generally, the piston in diaphragm pumps is made up of 2 diaphragms connected with a rod and the air is supplied to each of them alternately, causing reciprocation.

 

Pump Ratios

 Pneumatic Pumps have different motor to pump ratios depending on the effective areas of motor piston and the piston pump. It is the ratio of the effective area of motor piston to the effective area of the piston pump. The ratio is determined by dividing the motor piston’s effective area by the piston pump’s effective area. For example, if the motor piston’s area is 2 square inches and the piston pump’s area is 2 square inches, the pump ratio is 1:1. If the motor piston’s effective area is 2 inches and the piston pump’s effective area is 1 inch, then the pump ratio is 2:1.

 

1:1 Pump Ratio

If a pump has a ratio of 1:1, it means that the effective area of the motor piston is equal to the effective area of the piston pump. Therefore, applying a certain amount of pressure to the motor would yield an equal amount of fluid output pressure. For example, if a pressure of 100 psi is applied to the motor, it would yield a fluid output pressure of 100 psi when the fluid outlet is closed.

1:1 Ratio Pumps are ideal for pumping fluids of low viscosity over short distances (approximately 30m).

 

3:1 Pump Ratio

 If a pump has a ratio of 3:1, it means that the effective area of the motor piston is 3 times the effective area of the piston pump. Therefore, applying a certain amount of pressure to the motor would yield a fluid output pressure that is three times higher. For example, if a pressure of 100 psi is applied to the motor, it would yield a fluid output pressure of 300 psi when the fluid output is closed.

3:1 Ratio Pumps are ideal for pumping low to medium viscosity fluids over fairly longer distance than the 1:1 Ratio Pump (approximately 45m).

5:1 Pump Ratio

 If a pump has a ratio of 5:1, it means that the effective area of the motor piston is 5 times the effective area of the piston pump. Therefore, applying a certain amount of pressure to the motor would yield a fluid output pressure that is five times higher. For example, if a pressure of 100 psi is applied to the motor, it would yield a fluid output pressure of 500 psi when the fluid output is closed.

 5:1 Ratio Pumps are ideal for pumping medium to higher viscosity fluids over distances of 60m or more.

Air vs Hydraulic Ratios

Air and Hydraulic ratios work exactly the same way. The only difference is that hydraulic pressures are much higher and the ratio of motor to pump is much lower. Air compressor systems typically operate with pressures up to 100 psi (7 bar), while hydraulic power systems operate with pressures up to 1500 psi (105 bar). So to achieve similar pump pressures the effective surface area of the hydraulic motor will be much smaller than the effective surface area of the air motor.

Typically, a 10:1 air motor/pump combination is equivalent to a 1:1 hydraulic motor/pump combination because typical hydraulic pressure is 1000 psi (70 bar) and typical air pressure is 100 psi (7 bar).

The Common Cause For Oil Leaks

The Common Cause For Oil Leaks


26 September 2018

The most common cause for oil leaks is the build up of line pressure in the oil distribution system. As you would be aware, oil expands when it gets warm, most oil line installations run around the ceiling of the workshop, generally against a tin roof, the ambient temperature in summer could be 50+ degrees. Unless the system is fitted with thermal relief valves there is no way for the expanded oil to escape, only through older fittings or seals. The fitting of a thermal relief valve at the pump will allow the oil to vent back to the oil tank, relieving any line pressure and reduce the problems of oil leaks.
