Airlift Manifold Design

Post by A321J »

Good day everyone,

I'm trying to design an Airlift manifold. I've seen some amazing work on this forum and I'd like to see if I can add anything myself.

Not exactly sure how it will be made but I may try 3D printing for some smaller versions.

Below are a few topics relating to the design.
I would appreciate your input for some design considerations so if you have anything to say about these topics your comments it would be great to hear:

Diameter of airlifts that would be useful?

Target flow rates?

Size of nozzle for the air line to attach to on the manifold?

I will probably go with 1mm radial holes for the air flow, possibly combined with axial flow above the radial holes. Depending on what the designer thinks I may suggest some air being injected to the centre of the pipe via a smaller pipe. If i go for 3d printing this should be possible. If anyone has any thoughts on the method of delivering the air would be good.

Thanks everyone

All the best
