Re: box filter air volume
Set your desired flow, and then invert a measuring cup, filled with water,
over the standpipe. Measure about how long the cup takes to fill with air.
A cup is 250 cc, so divide by 250 to get the cc/min.

By moderate, I mean not an excessive turbulence in a std. 10 gal tank such as one might use for killies.. I'm trying to get a handle on how many such filters I could run off of the various size linear piston pumps. I think they are probably rated very conservatively.
