All current test results! Chamber + Membrane Airlifts!

Post by Pssymon » 05 Jul 2016, 05:06

Good day,

Here you will find all relevant test results as measured by Marc, Gino and Guyke.
All tests were done with Marc's quarantine pond test setup using an ultrasonic flow meter.
The flow was measured at the inlet to the collector (not in the Airlift) to prevent inconsistencies due to air bubbles in the flow.

I will post some pictures of the device used and the setup at Marc's place below the testresults.

Results:

Pressure chamber Airlift:
