Shear Rate Calculator

Calculate the shear rate for hollow fibers from given volumetric flow rate (L/min), numbers of fibers and diameter. If you don't have your volumetric flow rate in L/min please use the Volumetric flow rate converter. Use the i.d. code to identify the fiber diameter.

Shear rate (sec-1)

Note: Actual fiber diameter may vary from nominal fiber i.d. given above. For example i.d. code C has an actual fiber i.d. of 0.56 mm.
