Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

what is "kgm/h"? Aso "Nm3/h"? I think thet are related with flow. If Nm3/h is multiple of m3/h, how can I convert it to m3/h?

kgm might be an improper abbreviation for kilogram. Kilogram per hour would make sense for flow.

If symbols are being used properly, it would be kilogram meters per hour, but that makes little sense. I'd go with the first.

Nm^3 is another common improper abbreviation. The N is not Newtons, it's "normal." Gases are compressible, so their volume depends on temperature and pressure which have to be specified to underatnand how much gas a given volume represents. Normal is usually 1 atm, 0 degrees C.. "Standard" is often used for 1 atm. and either 15 or 20 degrees C, so you have to be careful to determine the reference conditions actually being used.
