Hello. What if I had a place with low atmosphere pressure, but I want to pressurize the atmosphere to earth's level. How strong should the compressor be if the atmosphere is 1% of Earths atmosphere?(there can be multiple compressors)
lots left out here---how much (usually given in cfm--cubic feet per minute) is needed to propery size the compressor. As for a compression ratio of 100 (to get from pressures of o.o1 atm to 1 atm you could use multiple stage units--two units with a compression ratio (CR) of 10, three with a CR of 4.6, four with a CR of 3.16 so on, for greater compressive efficiency--there are even continuously variable compressers that could do it in one jump--but you still need to know throughput.
