converting Litres per second to CFM
Hi
Most aircompressors quote CFM flow rates, new compressors out are in litres per second. How do I convert Litres per second to CFM? Thanks Ryan

Re: converting Litres per second to CFM
You can do that conversion here:
http://www.onlineconversion.com/flow_rate_volume.htm CFM is the symbol for cubic foot/minute 1 cubic foot/minute = 0.471 947 45 liter/second

Re: converting Litres per second to CFM
my compressor is having 45 liters capacity tank & working pressure is 5.2 kg
4 cfm is capacity how much time will be required to fill it up

however 117 cubic feet per minute is equal to 55.217 851 65 liters per second

*The math is inverted *The flow is rated in raw, atmospheric air. The 45 L tank is at pressure, 5 kgf/cm² (I assume that's what he meant) is 4.8 atm, so the 45 L is the equivalent of 216 L at 1 atm. (I have no idea what the temperature of the compressed air will be, depending on cooler performance, so I'll just ignore it). 216 L/ 113L/min = 1.9 minutes. (Ideally both temperature and pressure should be known and used to calculate how many standard cubic feet or liters are required to fill the 45 L tank. Some heating of the compressed air is unavoidable, so the tank contents will be somewhat less than 216 standard liters)

my a/c is 603 l/s what is the cfm?

Re: 5 liter/hours to cfm
plese convert

Re: 5 liter/hours to cfm
Recognize that 1 L = 1 dm³
5 dm³/h x 1h/60 min x (1ft/3.048 dm)³ = 0.00294 ft³/min
