looking at datasheet of this link

http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/File:G34_Flow_rate_to_frequency.jpg

if i get 11 hz as result i have 11,2 lt per minute

so in case i have 3320 rpm it means that i have a flow rate of 602 L/hour?

am i right?

You wouldn't know what the rpm is, and don't need to know either.  All you need to know is the pulses per litre, in this case 60, and any calc can be taken from there.

i would like to understand better this forumla not to make further mistakes with other calculations

 Calc = (NbTopsFan * 60 / 5.5); //(Pulse frequency x 60) / 5.5Q, = flow rate

NbTopsFan is number of turns arduino detects in determined time if i make delay of interrupt of 1 second it will calculate turns douring 1 second

60 is minute? 1 hour

and what is 5.5  i still don't understand and from where it comes from

 Calc = (NbTopsFan * 60 / 5.5);           <<<<<<<<< THIS is the formula                    

pulses per second * 60 = pulses per minute. Divide by pulses per litre to get litres per minute.

No. NbTopsFan is the number of pulses. - the "Pulse frequency" as clearly stated.
The 5.5 is the calibration (pulse/litre)

Either, neither, or both. You asked for pulses per litre. The time is irrelevant. I think you should ignore this anyway. It doesn't match with the formula.  I don't think the seed crowd know what they are doing. I have already posted Oxer's programme, he does know what he is doing, and properly explains it.

So in case i use oxer programe should i change the value of calibration for 5.5 instead of 6.82?

Yes. The 6.82 is the factor I use for a turbine with 1/2" fittings.
