Abstract : The development of a double leg elbow proportional fluid amplifier to handle 5.85 gpm of water flow rate is described in detail. The amplifier has linear output flow characteristics with a gain of 50 and can switch flow from one output to the other completely. Based upon the experimental results, analytical expressions are developed which clearly show the effects of the active and passive legs flow parameters, the control flow and the size and location of the output ports on amplifier's performance and they can be used in designing an amplifier of a desired flow capacity. Analytical expressions to predict the performance of the amplifier are also given. A mixing element comprised of two double leg elbow amplifiers stacked together to mix two fluids was designed and tested successfully. (Author)
