What is the meaning of SCFM

SCFM stands for "Standard Cubic Feet per Minute." It is a measurement of the flow rate of a gas, typically air, under standard conditions.

Standard conditions are defined as a specific temperature, pressure, and relative humidity, and they are used as a reference point to compare and standardize gas flow rates.

SCFM is often used in applications where the characteristics of the gas, such as air, need to be consistent for accurate measurements.

SCFM is important in industries like manufacturing, where it is used to specify the flow rates of compressed air in pneumatic systems, as well as in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems to determine the airflow rates through vents and ducts.

It ensures that measurements are consistent regardless of variations in temperature, pressure, or humidity.
