Home General Topics Customer Representative Manufacturer

As all our meter sizing literature /specs are in the "English" system, we offer the following conversion factors for your consideration . We hope this information will make meter selection easier for you.

FLOW - LIQUIDS  
CM    (Cubic Meter) x264.19     = USA Gallons
m3 /H (Cubic meters/hr) x4.4        = USA Gallons / minute
CMD   (Cubic Meters/day)  x.18347     = USA Gallons / minute
L     (Liter) x.2642      = USA Gallon
LPH   (Liters/hr) x.004403    = USA Gallons / minute
LPS   (Liters per sec) x15.852     = USA Gallons / minute
P     (USA pounds) / (8.33xSG) = USA Gallons
BPD   (Barrels per day) Oil x42/24/60   = USA Gallons
   
FLOW - GASES  
CM or m3  (Cubic meter) x35.31338 = Physical conversion (NOT USED)
m3/H      (Cubic Meter / Hr) x36.06/60 = SCFM  at 1 ATM and 70 deg F
Nm3/H  (Normal m3/H) x38.04/60 = SCFM  at 1 ATM and  0 deg F
Liter / 13.785 = 1 SCFM
1 KG CO2 at 1 ATM & 70 deg F = 19.253 SCF
1 KG HELIUM at 1 ATM & 70 deg F = 213.2  SCF
1 KG OXYGEN at 1 ATM & 70 deg F = 26.632 SCF
1 KG ARGON at 1 ATM & 70 deg F = 21.32  SCF
1 KG NITROGEN at 1 ATM & 70 deg F = 30.42  SCF
1 KG Natural Gas at 1 ATM & 70 deg F = 43.92  SCF
 
PRESSURE  
BAR x 14.5     = PSI
kg/cm2 x 14.2233  = PSI
KPA x  0.145   = PSI
MPA x145.0     = PSI
Inches WC x  0.03608 = PSI
 
TEMPERATURE  
Degree C (Centigrade) x1.8+32        = deg F
Degree K (Kelvin) x1.8 - 459.67  = deg F
 
WEIGHT  
Animal FAT  =  7.5 lbs / USA Gallon
Molasses  = 11.7 lbs/ USA Gallon
KG  (kilogram) x2.2046 = USA Pound
TON (metric) x2204.6 = USA Pounds
AIR  =  0.0752 lb/cu ft
 
LENGTHS  
1 meter  = 39.37     inches = 3.2808 feet
1 centimeter  =  0.3937   inches
1 millimeter  =  0.03937  inches
 
VISCOSITY  
1 mm2/s  =  1 CST
Pressure Drop Tables in Sponsler literature are for WATER (viscosity = 1 cP)
Kinematic Viscosity (CST)  =  Absolute Viscosity (cP)/sg (specific
    gravity)
