    This calculator provides an estimate of flow through a FALCO 100 at a catalyst temperature of 330°C with the heat exchanger bypass valve closed**. Alternatively, if the Flow rate is known, Inlet Pressure may be estimated.    
               
               
    Known Inlet Pressure:          
    Enter Inlet Pressure (in H20)      
    Estimated Flow Rate = (SCFM)      
               
               
    Known Flow Rate:          
    Enter Flow Rate (SCFM)      
    Estimated Inlet Pressure = (in H20)      
                 
           
 

 

* Flow greater than 130 scfm is beyond the normal operating range.

 
  ** FALCO 100 is normally operated with heat exchanger bypass closed at concentrations < 1000 ppmv.
 
*** FALCO 100 may be operated with the heat exchanger bypass open at high concentrations. 
 
  Inlet pressure assumes a clean flame arrestor.  
           
  The FALCO 100 has a high efficiency heat exchanger.  
  High efficiency is accompanied by increased pressure drop.  
  Heat recovery is adjustable with a heat exchanger bypass valve.  
  Lowering heat recovery reduces pressure drop.
