I have a Delta ASB0912L DC Brushless fan. PDF here.
In the datasheet it says,
RPM 3800 CFM 67.80 IN H2O 0.302
On the blower, squirrel cage fan, Dayton from Grainger, found here (Rectangular Permanent Split Capacitor OEM Specialty Blower, Flange: Yes, Wheel Dia: 3", 115VAC)
RPM 3010 CFM @ 0.200-In. SP78 CFM @ 0.300-In. SP74
I want to exhaust fumes from a spray booth. I know there are many articles and plans online. I am trying to understand the math here.
It seems intuitive to me the Grainger fan is more powerful and will remove more air than the CPU fan. But the math makes no sense to me.
On the CPU fan it has .302 for Static Pressure and .3 for the Grainger and the CFM is pretty close.
I am moving air through 6' of ductwork, 4" in diameter, and neither tell me what CFM means in this context.
Given a 2'Lx2'Wx2'H spray box. Again, I'm not asking for plans. I can get that already. I only want to understand what these numbers mean and the spray box application gives the question context.
Why doesn't the CPU fan move almost as much as the Blower based on the specifications? Also, is the Delta IN H20 given static pressure or is that something else?
