Disclaimer:        Take these air flow readings with a grain of salt.
                   The ratings may not be comparable to flow ratings from another flow bench.
                   Calibrations,set-up,etc. may be different than other flow benches also.
                   I think the main purpose would be the air flow comparison between the different heads.
                   Thanks-John
