    I mildly disagree with Bruce.

    I do my comparison based on 4 Big Frankies in operation, 1MW nominal power. For some days Penon reports that one BF was down, so the pump volume was reduced, and the output was only 3/4 MW.

    There may be…

    Point 2 : Penon didn't report a constant "24-pump" volume. He downgraded it to "18-pumps" on occasion. So my use of "1MW" base is fair. (There may be other data to indicate Penon's data is wrong).

    Point 3 : the previous curves showed that my pump was…

    I just posted a new run of the Gamma L pump.

    Bottom line : near 0 bar the pump delivers 1.83 times the "faceplate" value of 32l/hr : using Penon's formula the output would be 0.94 MW.

    (Note : and my old pump seems to be under-performing compared…

    RESULTS !!!! Details in next post.

    I did a complete "scan" from vertical to horizontal (outlet level with the pump center) at about 1 foot increments.

    I think the data is good ... looks "monotonic" with height -- BUT after about 45 degrees -- 10 feet…

    I gave up on following that. I was in a strange maryyugo/jedrothwell echo chamber.

    Mayhaps we can open a new thread .. at 9:30 am Miami time?

    On another forum (different subject) we had a no-comments thread for 'boots-on-the-ground/golden-ticket-holders'…

    I got some copper tubing to make a new "head' to my apparatus (rember, surface tension in my plastic tube meant there was no definite 'height' to the top of the pole). Now I'm waiting for the rains to stop (except we need them, too).

    That's just NUTS. This is bog-standard engineering practice, and is not only "unique" but blindingly obvious.

    Might be granted, of course.

    Admins : wrong thread ?
