Cylinder Air Consumption

To calculate the air consumption of a cylinder, multiply align=”left”>the total inches of stroke (extend plus retract) by the cycles per minute times the SCFM factor from the chart below. To find the SCFM factor, find your gauge pressure in the left hand column. Next, find your cylinder bore size in the chart. Where the two intersect, read down to fhe SCFM factor at the bottom of the chart.
