I have a very early Croix HVLP gun that runs off a "turbine" which is essentially a vacuum cleaner. It puts out 52 CFM at 28 PSI.

Reading this thread got me wondering....If a compressor is putting out 15 CFM @ 90 PSI, how many CFM is that at 25 PSI? I'm trying to remember back to chemistry class on how to calculate that. I think it's Boyle's law...
