Question
`how to calibrate a control valve?`
Question Submitted By :: Instrumentation
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By

# 1
calibration instrument required.
1.portable pneumatic calibrator
INPUT signal OUTPUT
Generate 0.2 kg/cm 0% of v/v travel
0.4 25%
0.6 50%

0.8 75%
1.0 100%

If you observe any deviation adjust accordingly.

BY using DRUG calibrater we can easily calibrate just we
need a air line having pressure of 6kg as input of CV.
by giving 4-20mA signal through DRUG.
for example
4mA CV in close position
8mA 25%
12mA 50%
16mA 75%
20mA 100%

To calibrate a valve first check the input signal range if
it is 0.2 to 1.0 Kg/cm2 or different.
Calculate the span ( Difference between higher limit to
lower limit=1.0-0.2=.8 ) Now divide it in four equal parts
that is 0.2 Kg/cm2 this is 25% of the span.
Now check the valve travel like 2 inches, 3 inches or any
other value Divide it in four equal parts 25% of the travel.
Apply 25% of the span value+ 0.2= 0.4 Kg/cm2 it is 25% of
travel and apply full span value and see you get the
complete travel if you find difference adjust the spring
accordingly.

before do the stroke checking we have make sure the bench
calibration after that we should check 0-100% stroke

If the valve is SMART now we can use a HART communicator to calibrate the control valve.Give the supply pressure according to the valve name plate then use HART communicator and give 0% 25% 50% 75% & 100% check the travelling of valve

first you have to now your limits if its pneumatic work
from 20 to 100kpa if current i 4 to 20ma
supply pressure,
1.bench set
2.beam alignments
3.calibration
