# Compressed Air - Laboratory Consumption

## Compressed air supply to laboratories.

The typical total demand for compressed air in laboratories due to diversity and simultaneous use are indicated in the diagrams below. All outlets for compressed air are newer used at the same time.

### Compressed Air - cfm

• 1 scfm per outlet used

### Compressed Air - l/s

• 0.5 nl/s per outlet used

### Example - Compressed Air Supply to a Laboratory

For a laboratory with 10 outlets the compressed air supply should be sized for a capacity of 3 nl/s.
