## 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)

To calculate the air compressor fill time, divide the total container volume by the compressor flow rate.

## How to Calculate Air Compressor Fill Time?

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

- First, determine the total container volume (ft^3).
- Next, determine the total air compressor flow rate (CFM).
- Next, gather the formula from above = FT = CV / FR.
- Finally, calculate the Air Compressor Fill Time.
- 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** **= ?
