How to define the size of control valve?..

Answer /

#"Cv" for valve is known as: valve sizing coefficient or
valve flow coefficient

#It refers to " how many gallons per minute can pass
through a fully open valve under diffrential pressure of 1

#Cv is a unitless value and by getting it's value we can
get the valve size in inch from tables.

#Cv is got from calculations using s/w provided by
manufacturer as we have many parameters affect its value,
and Cv value is critical as it affects valve size which
leads us - if wrong - to oversized valve or undersized
valve, which harm the process.

#Cv - as mentioned - is got from calculations using s/w,
but it has a basic formula for gas service and liquid

#For liquid service:


#For gas service:

Q = 963 Cv (DP(P1+P2)/ROH*T)^.5, T is gas temperature in
