What is an .CFX file?

.CFX is Flow-Cal Data File

A CFX file is a data file used by FLOWCAL, a gas and liquid measurement application. It contains gas and liquid electronic flow measurement (EFM) data for importing into the FLOWCAL system. CFX files are used for generating flow information, meter configuration, and analysis by the FLOWCAL software.

The CFX format is encrypted to maintain data integrity, not allowing any changes or manipulation to occur. CFX files are created by remote operations controllers like the ROC800L that are programmed to measure and control the flow of liquid hydrocarbons, which is necessary for oil well testing. FLOWCAL Enterprise is an application utilized to validate, store, balance, and report the gas and liquid data.
