Doesn't a ml translate to 1 cubic centimeter?
I figured the current setup with glass ball is good for like 35 cc per minute? But the steel ball is good for 105 cc per minute right? Hence my desire for the steel ball.
I "lost" which exact tube you had and it's max output.
Posed the above just to get some point of reference for large tanks w/ sumps and a flow rate number..
If the above is "your" numbers than yea you won't have enough max flow...
Oh yea, forgot b-125-6 w/ Air rate 34mL/minute..STP.
35 x 1.2 = 42 mL/minute CO2 max...STP
Still lower than "what others use"
I think "we" need a few more estimates on "normal" actual flow rates..
Besides you might find a float by the time of the new tank..
OK it's not really easy in finding examples that one can trust 100% (mine included btw)
Throwing my numbers for comparison.
according to my flow meter im at 80ish cc/min. 134 Gall w/ 55 gallon sump, I have a power head on it if it matters. about 20 PSI working pressure. modified cerges reactor.
if i run a co2 line straight from my flow meter to the sump im at 95~100 cc/min, inverted cup method matches this number.
At least it's sort of calibrated..
In light of how things are shaking out it's almost better to just get a new flowmeter when the time comes.
I'm not a fan of bleeding edge CO2 delivery but that is just me..
One pound (454 grams) of carbon dioxide CO2 gas occupies 0.2426 m3, or 8.566 ft3, or 64 US gallons, or 243 liters – your choice of units!
242000 cc's/ lb..
1lb lasts 40 hours at 100cc/min...5 days,,
