Enter the total container volume (ft^3) and the total air compressor flow rate (CFM) into the Air Compressor Fill Time Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Air Compressor Fill Time. 

Air Compressor Fill Time Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Air Compressor Fill Time.

FT = CV / FR

Variables:

  • FT is the Air Compressor Fill Time (minutes)
  • CV is the total container volume (ft^3) 
  • FR is the total air compressor flow rate (CFM) 

How to Calculate Air Compressor Fill Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Air Compressor Fill Time.


  1. First, determine the total container volume (ft^3). 
  2. Next, determine the total air compressor flow rate (CFM). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = FT = CV / FR.
  4. Finally, calculate the Air Compressor Fill Time.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total container volume (ft^3) = 300

total air compressor flow rate (CFM) = 20

FT = CV / FR = ?
