The below video shows how to calculate the air consumption when operating at any pressure.

If you need to operate at a different pressure because you require less or more force or simply operate at a different line pressure, this formula will allow you to determine the volume of air being consumed by any device.

Lets first consider the volume of the 1100 Super Air Nozzle at a higher than published pressure. As shown in the formula and calculations it is simply the ratio of gauge pressure + atmospheric divided by the published pressure + atmospheric and then multiply the dividend by the published volume. So as we do the math we solve for 17.69 SCFM @ 105 PSIG from a device that was shown consume 14 SCFM @ 80 PSIG.

Now lets consider the volume at a lower than published pressure. As shown it is simply the ratio of gauge pressure + atmospheric divided by the published pressure + atmospheric and then multiply the dividend by the published volume. So as we do the math we solve for 11.04 SCFM @ 60 PSIG from a device that was shown to consume 14 SCFM @ 80 PSIG.
