Spanish term or phrase: c.a.
Las bombas “CAT“ del sistema de pistón hueco (UNIFLOW) y algunos del sistema del pistón cerámico, son autocebantes en algunos casos hasta 6 mts. c.a. no obstante, es aconsejable para evitar problemas de cavitación, trabajar en carga sin sobrepasar nunca las presiones máximas indicadas para la aspiración, en cada modelo.

I dont know what c.a. means. I think this may be latin American, but am not sure. It may be something to do with "about" - circa?

Explanation:
En este contexto, c. a. significa "columna de agua", y es una forma de medir presión: 10,33 metros de columna de agua = 1 atmósfera = 760 mm de columna de mercurio

También se expresa como "mcda" (es decir, metros de columna de agua), o "cda" (columna de agua), cuando -como es lo más usual- se trata de valores menores de 1 metro.

En general, se suele expresar presión en "c.a." cuando se trata de presiones o sobrepresiones pequeñas.
