To determine how long it will take to evacuate a given volume to a specific vacuum level t = V/S ln(P1 / P2)

unknown 16 50 14.92 5

t = time in minutes V = volume of chamber (cubic feet) S = average pumping speed of the pump in ACFM P1 = beginning pressure (in absolute) P2 = ending (desired) pressure in absolute


equals time in minutes (multiply by 60 to get seconds)
