 Need Help??

I have been hand a number of txt files from a datalogger, (which was logging water flow) like this

A continuous repetitive pattern of 6 lines. IS there a way of parsing the 6 line pattern into 1 csv file ... or just data field format ... which could be parsed or handed to a dat daemon. I.e. point the script at a folder with say 20 files like this in it, and have it process each file into usable field like data, which could be loaded into a database. Clearly some of the 6 lines have propriety numbers perhaps in scientific format in them, but at the moment I would love to get a dump into some sort of usable data field format.
