    Calculate Static Pressure (SP)

    The pressure generated by fans in ductwork is typically very small. An accurate measurement of static presure is critical to proper fan selection however. Static pressure in fan systems is typically less than 2" SP, or 0.072 Psi.


    The amount of static pressure that the fan must overcome depends on the air velocity in the ductwork, the number of duct turns (and other resistive elements), and the duct length. For properly designed systems with sufficient make-up air, the guidelines in the table below can be used for estimating static pressure.
