for this purpose, you might have a look at the Sensor Factory Sensor. It can be used to do calculations based on sensor values.

Ok, thanks. And in this case, can I hide sensors used for calculation and keep only final factory sensor?

No, I'm afraid the sensors on which the calculation is based cannot be hidden. Sorry.
