View Full Version : CFM = 1TON ?

How many CFM's of air equal one ton of refrigeration?

That all depends on how the system is engineered. Engineers normally figure 350 - 400 cfm per ton.

The answer will vary depending on application. Rule of thumb is 400 CFM/Ton for a residential unit or unti with very little outdoor air.
Rule of thumb for 100% outdoor air is 250 CFM/Ton.

250-400-600 cfm- different variables require different cfms

what is the basis of your question? all posters are correct, but it depends on type of system, static pressure, etc.

Liebert CRAC systems go about 700 cfm's per ton......it depends on the application and the Manfacturer's engineering of the system.

Yeah, there is no real "direct" answer for this question. There are only rules of thumb for estimations.

1 ton=1.08x desired airflowx desired delta t
This is for illustration only, and does not reflect actual calculations since it does not compensate for both latent and sensible loads.
