Convert from % Vacuum to Unit of Pressure

The % of vacuum is a relative value where pressure at normal or standard atmosphere is the base value.

pv% = 100% - (pv / patm) 100%                                       (1)

where

pv% = vacuum (%)

pv = absolute pressure (psia, kPa, bar ..)

patm = absolute presure at normal or standard conditions (psia, kPa, bar ..)

Example - Pressure in kPa and % Vacuum

The vacuum with absolute pressure 4 kPa and standard pressure 101.4 kPa can be calculated as

pv% = 100% - ((4 kPa) / (101.4 kPa)) 100% 

       = 96.1 %

Example - Pressure in kPa and % Vacuum

The vacuum with absolute pressure 0.1 bar and standard pressure 1 bar can be calculated as

pv% = 100% - ((0.1 bar) / (1 bar)) 100% 

       = 90 %

Vacuum Ranges

Pressure
(Pa)
Low vacuum 1x105 to 3x103
Medium vacuum 3x103 to 1x10-1
High vacuum 1x10-1 to 1x10-7
Ultra high vacuum 1x10-7 to 1x10-10
Extremely high vacuum 1x10-10
Perfect vacuum 0
