To calculate the element pressure drop, multiply actual flow rate times factor in table below to determine pressure drop with fluid at 32 cSt (150 SUS), 0.9 S.G. Correct for other fluids by multiplying new Viscosity in cSt/32 (SUS/150) x new S.G./0.9. Note: factors are per 1000 L/min and per 1 US gpm.
