Application: What Makes Calculation of Full Port Ball Valve Flow Coefficient Challenging?
Posted Tue July 07, 2020 @12:13PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Often valve manufacturers face the challenge that their valve's flow coefficient, Cv, is less than those of competing manufacturers.

Many resources are spent on valve design only to end up with an under performing valve during experimental testing.
