English to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / pressure measurement units
English term or phrase:American - metric conversion (pressure)
I am translating a manual on industrial pumps from US English into Hungarian.
In many instances pressure values are given in "psig", which I already figured out as being equal to 0.06895 bar in the metric system.
Now, I have this sentence:
"Using Chiller switch, pop switch up a few times to put 3 to 4 lbs. pressure on Suction Pressure Gauge."
How would I convert pounds (which is normally a measure of mass) into metric pressure units?
Explanation: 'psi' - this is the usual measure of pressure in pumps - I'm not sure what the 'g' at the end means here.
So you should not translate it merely by using the metric system but also consider the pounds pressure involved. Hope this solves your problem.
