Maybe I'm just not making myself clear... or I'm being stubborn.

So what you're saying is that if the hose diameter was say, 3 feet, your pump could raise/lower the water by 30 mm?

That's what he's saying, and he's right.

Hum...

so if cross section is irrelevant, the water would be raised/lowered by 30 mm, no matter what the diameter...

...but if the diameter is say, 1 meter, the volume of water moved would be 0.024 cubic meters, which is 24 liters, which weighs 24 kg.

If the diameter was 2 cm, then the volume of water would be 0.0000094248 cubic meters, which is 0.009425 liters, which weighs 0.009425 kg, aka 9.4 grams.

Given that the fan will produce a fixed amount of force, the diameter very much makes a difference.

Am I wrong?

I think you're just having a temporary short in your brain, 'cause you know this already

Pressure is not dependent on volume. Your 100 PSI air pump will fill a truck tire to 100 PSI just like it will fill a bicycle tire to 100 PSI. Just takes a lot more pumping!

That little pump will fill the city pool up to 30mm deep. It may take a couple years, but it will do it. That is the nature of centrifugal pumps. These pumps maintain a constant pressure, regardless of flow rate. That's in direct contrast to displacement pumps, which move specific volumes of water regardless of pressure (to a point, of course.)

Oh yes! Thanks!

The city pool did it for me I always have a problem remembering that one.

So if the volume of water IE diamater is more , the psi doesn't increase? so 10 feet deep in the ocean is the same psi as 10 feet deep in a common pool , interesting.. Never gave that much thought. So I see what you're saying about filling the pool.. nice job breaking it down for us.. lol --Bikr

Substitute force by pressure in that sentence and you're OK

Multiply pressure by area and you get force.

That's the key concept behind hidraulic machinery; Fluids transmit pressure, not force.

I tested this pump in my system today. I was a bit scared at he begining about overheating, but it did a good job!

Here are the results compared to my regular pump, a Shott 11.10.

first number is my 12V model

Pump power in watts:_________________4/12
In system waterflow (LPM)___________2.1/4.7
CPU-Water delta temp idle____________11/9
CPU-Water delta temp BurnK7_________18/16

This is amazing! despite the huge difference in power and flowrate my temps are only 2ÂșC worst; not bad at all!

more important for me is noise. My other pump makes a slightly anoying rattle some days (I guess it depends on the turning direction it choose on startup), and this one was impossible to hear.

I found this quite a success, given that I started testing ready to unplug the power in case of high temps.

Perhaps a blower instead of a axial fan will give you more torque. It might also be a lot easier to convert.

What about something like this: http://comairrotron.com/pdfs/DD5236Series.PDF

How long did you give it to equalise?, my rig takes forever to reach the max temp(where it falls and rises for a while then stabalises), up to an hour...

I'm not too surprised though, I ran my PC for hours without the pump running before the Alarm sounds at 45DegC. The radiator was higher than the CPU so convection happened easily though...

My cpu to ambient temps take several hours to stabilize, and sure at that time ambient temp has changed. I have an open 5 galon res that cools by evaporation instead of a rad. However, I measured cpu to water temps, that takes about 10 minutes and I waited 15.

I Dont want to make a suicide test without pump, I'm prety sure that convection is going to have a hard work trying to move the water across 2 meters of hose and a fine mesh filter, that I use to keep the block free of debris.

you want a 120MM fan as a donation, to build another one?

Damn! I had decided to not make another one cause I have very little free time; but if you give me a push...

email me address, i will send ya one! (i can send you a nice 120mm 120VAC fan if you think you can get that to work also, i'm not sure if you could).
Heck, i'll send you two if you make me a pump

Seriously, free shipping, and i got tons of fans (from work).

If you want to give steppers a shot, I can pull the innards of 4 dead CD-ROM drives that I picked up from NewEgg, because I needed the case.

If you have plenty to choose from, here's what you have to look for:

- High amp rating
- RPM sensor wire
- Sleeve bearings

Ball bearings in the one I used seem to be stainless, but Less and simple moving parts improve long time reliability.

I sent you a pm with shipping details

Ben, I have also some old cd and floppy drives, I'm good at storing junk But conversion of that motors require more electronics skills than mine.
