### Technical Specifications Rev

Flow Coefficient C V The use of the flow coefficient CV first introduced by Masoneilan in 1944 quickly became accepted as the universal yardstick of valve capacity. So useful has C V become that practically all discussions of valve design and characteristics or flow behavior now employ this coefficient. By definition the valve flow

### Control Valve Sizing For Steam Systems

A control valve is supplied with dry saturated steam from a separator at 12 bar g and used to drop steam pressure to 4 bar g at full load. The full load flowrate is 1300 kg/h requiring a Kvr of 8.3. A DN25 1 valve is initially considered for selection which has a Kvs of 10 and a valve outlet area of 0.000 49 m2.
