LEV calculations

Useful calculator for LEV assessors

Conversions

Inches =
In w.g. = kPa = ft/min =
In w.g. = Pa = cu.ft =
In w.g. = cfm =

Convert between Pa, ppm and mg/m3
Enter the molecular weight and the working temperature, and one only of vapour pressure (Pa) or airborne concentration in ppm or mg/m3

°C

Averages


Enter a value, click on the button or hit [Enter] and repeat.

This calculator is optimised for face velocity readings in m/s to 2 decimal places so there is no need to enter a decimal point.

e.g. A value of 145 will be transposed to 1.45; 26 will become 0.26 etc
