Question
```what is the diffrence between mmwc and kg/cm2 for pressure
measurment when we are using mmwc and when kg/cm2 and why?????
?? what is the reason
```

I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By

# 1
when we r measuring very low pressure :: mmWC
and measuring high pr. :: kg/cm2/bar/psi... ok
for example we r measuring like boiler furnaces
pressure(draft) i.e very low pr.(250mmWC) so we r measuring
in mmWC, and when we r calibrating the transmitters (flow
and level) that time also we r calling transmitters range
also mmWC ok

here note the point is 10,000 mmWC = 1 Kg/cm2 then
1mmwc=0.0001kg/cm2 ok

10000 mmwc equals to 1 kg/cm2.
For low ranges pressure is mentioned in MMWC otherwise in
any other pressure units.

Mostly both are units of pressure. when we measure the very
low pressure than it is expressed in mmwc else higher
pressures are measured in kg/cm2. low pressure can also be
used for but the error in values will be more.
Basically 10000 mmwc is 1 kg/cm2 a.

N/m2 is SI Unit and Kg(f)/cm2 is MKS Unit.

1 Kg/cm2 is 1.033 bar or 1.033x10^5 N/m2
10000 mmwc= 1 kg/cm2

Basically 10000 mmwc is 1 kg/cm2 a.In thermal power plant mmwc is most useful in boiler side.

both r units for pressure,.but,mmwc(millimeter water column)is
very low pressure means less than zero.here, 10000mmwc=1kg/cm2.we may consider the mmwc as vaccum.

both r units of pressure itself..but when the system is in
vacuum then the pressure measured in mmwc and the positive
pressure measured by kg/cm2.so for low pressure mmwc used
and for high pressure kg/cm2 is used..

We are using the mmWC for very low or lower than 0 and more than 0 we are using Kg/cm2.

when we r measuring very low pressure :: mmWC and general terms is Draft pressure and measuring high pr. :: kg/cm2/bar/psi...for example we r measuring like boiler furnaces pressure and flue gas path (draft) i.e very low pr.(250mmWC) so we r measuring in mmWC, and when we are calibrating the flow, draft and level transmitters we will indicate the range in mmWC. The error value for FSD will be higher side for the transmitters which are calibrated in mmWC.
