This calculator provides an estimate of flow through a FALCO 600 at a catalyst temperature of 330°C with the heat exchanger bypass valve closed**.

Inlet pressure assumes a clean flame arrestor.

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)
   
             
    Note: On units manufactured before 2013, opening the heat exhanger bypass valve will reduce pressure drop by approximately 4-6 in H2O.***  
               
   
   
   
  * Flow greater than 700 scfm or less than 300 scfm is beyond the normal operating range.
  ** FALCO 600 is normally operated with heat exchanger bypass closed at concentrations < 900 ppmv.
  *** FALCO 600 may be operated with the heat exchanger bypass open at high concentrations.
