Cv Flow Coefficient Table

cv-e1449301943676Data for Calculation of Flow and / or Pressure Drop 

Kv = Cv x 0.85

A Valve coefficient Cis used to calculate pressure drop through a particular Valve for a given flow rate. The coefficient of flow Cv expresses the rate of flow in gallons per minute at 60o F water with a pressure drop of 1 psig across the valve. The Cv coefficients for the various types of size, shown in the tables, have been determined form calculations and actual flow tests.

Note: Kv is the metric equivalent of Cv

 For Liquids:

Where             QL=Flow in U.S. Gallons per minute.
ΔP  = (P1 – P2) Pressure drop in psl.
GL = Specific gravity of liquid ( Water = 1 at 60o F )

 For Gas:

Where           Qg = Volumetric flow of gas (SCFH)
Gg= Specific gravity of gas standard conditions (air at atmosphere and  60o F = 1)                            T =  Absolute temperature of gas ( o F + 460 )

 For Steam:

 Note    :  For saturated steam TS = 0
W W = Pounds per hour of steam
ΔP     = (P1 – P2) Pressure drop in psl
TS     =  Degree of superhear ( o F )

Note ; For gas and steam, max. ΔP = 1/2 P1 and min. P2 = 1/2 P1 and P1, P2 are absolute    pressure (psia)   P1 = inlet pressure, P2 = outlet pressure
