 October 23, 2008, 09:40 Pressure drop? #1 Munni Guest   Posts: n/a Hi folks: I have a simple question: We have to design a component, and the customer said the pressure drop has to be 2kPa (for example). Now what he means, is it static pressure or total pressure? Because if the diameter of the inlet and outlet are same, then we will not see any static pressure drop. My question is, if some one say pressure drop is A amount, does he/she means static or total pressure drop? How does that work in industry environment? Munni
