Oil Field Conversion Part 1 – Area, Circulation Rate, Impact Force

Working in the oil filed, you may need to convert some unit values to another unit valves.  I have some conversion unit specially used in the drilling and working over industry.  I have 3 parts of the oil field conversion unit. This is the first part which is the conversion of Area, Circulation Rate, Impact Force.

The RED number is the conversion unit.


Square inches x 6.45 = Square centimeters

Square inches x 645 = Square millimeters

Square centimeters x 0.155 = Square inches

Square millimeters x 0.00155 = Square inches

Circulation Rate

Barrels/min x 42 = Gallons/min

Cubic feet/min x 0.000472 = Cubic meters/sec

Cubic feet/min x 7.48 = Gallons/min

Cubic feel/mm x 28.32 = Liters/min

Cubic meters/sec x 15850 = Gallons/min

Cubic meters/sec x 2118 = Cubic feet/min

Cubic meters/sec x 60000 = Litres/min

Gallons/min x 0.0238 = Barrels/ruin

Gallons/min x 0.134 = Cubic feet/min

Gallons/min x 3.79 = Litres/min

Gallons/min x 0.00006309 = Cubic meters/sec

Litres/min x 0.00001667 = Cubic meters/sec

Litres/min x 0.0353 = Cubic feet/min

Litres/min x 0.264 = Gallons/min

Impact Force

Pounds x 0.0000445 = Dynes

Pounds x 0.454 = Kilograms

Pounds x 4.448 = Newtons

Dynes x0.00000225 = Pounds

Kilograms x 2.2 = Pounds

Newtons x 0.2248 = Pounds

I hope this conversion unit will be advantageous for you.
