SCFM is also better known as Standard Cubic Feet per Minute, is basically a volumetric flow rate, which is corrected to typical circumstances of gas compactness, thus in lieu of an accurate mass flow rate. It is a volumetric flow rate, which is at a "standardized" pressure, temperature, and comparative humidity.

The temperature difference is the mainly significant. In Europe, SCFM is usually defined as "Standard Temperature and Pressure" (STP) that is 0°C, 32°F. In the USA, on the other hand, ambient circumstances are used as a foundation, and diverse groups use 60°F, 68°F (20°C), 70°F and 77°F (25°C). SCFM different in this way can be approximately 10% enhanced than the European standards. For instance, a mass flow of 1000 kg/hr is 455 SCFM definite at 0°C, 32°F but 489 SCFM defined at 68°F, 20°C, which is the majority ordinary US basis.
