This calculator provides an estimate of flow through a FALCO 300 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 H2O)
   
    Estimated Flow Rate =
(SCFM)
   
             
             
    Known Flow Rate:        
    Enter Flow Rate
(SCFM)
   
    Estimated Inlet Pressure =
(in H2O)
   
             
    Opening the heat exhanger bypass valve will reduce pressure drop by    
    approximately 3-6 in H2O.***          
   
   
   
  * Flow greater than 360 scfm is beyond the normal operating range.
  ** FALCO 300 is normally operated with heat exchanger bypass closed at concentrations < 800 ppmv
  *** FALCO 300 may be operated with the heat exchanger bypass open at high concentrations
  Inlet pressure assumes a clean flame arrestor.
   
  The FALCO 300 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.
