### Discharge Coefficient

In Equation 14.18 the discharge coefficient C d = 2 / 3 2 g / 3 = 1.705 in metric units and in Equation 14.19 C ′ d = 2 / 3 2 / 3 = 0.544 in non dimensional units. If the flow passes through critical depth over a weir crest then it might appear that C d would always take that value. However it is important to appreciate the inherent assumptions lying behind the theory that led

### What is Flow Coefficient Cv and Why You Should Care

What is Flow Coefficient Cv The Cv tells you how to properly size your valve so it has minimal effect on the hydraulic efficiency you’ve engineered into your system. It is a number published by the valve manufacturer that describes the number of U.S. gallons that can pass through a valve in a fully open position at a pressure drop of 1 PSI.

### Why we Measure Control Valve flow coefficient Cv

Control valve Cv is determined by the manufacturer of the valve and can be found on the valve manufacturer’s related valve data and specification sheets.. Valves are tested by running water through it before publishing the Cv value. It can be assumed that the tests are done with water unless otherwise noted using a specific gravity of 1.0 1.2 centistoke viscosity and a

Valve requirements A valve is not needed for applications but the most common valve used with a rotameter is a needle valve. Media Type. Rotameters can be configured to either measure liquid or gas flow. Measuring the flow of liquids and gases is a

### Head Loss

For all minor losses in turbulent flow the head loss varies as the square of the velocity. Thus a convenient method of expressing the minor losses in flow is by means of a loss coefficient k . Values of the loss coefficient k for typical situations and fittings is found in standard handbooks. The form of Darcy s equation used to calculate

The lab manual provides students with an overview of ten different fluid mechanics laboratory experiments and their practical applications.

### How to Use Flow Coefficients Cv for Hydraulic Fluids

The valve manufacturer must determine the Cv coefficients experimentally by actual test. These tests are usually conducted with water. The published Cv coefficient should then be corrected by the user for specific gravity and viscosity of his fluid. Table 1PSI Pressure Drops for Cv Flow Coefficients for a Flow of 1 GPM

### How to Select Valves for Industrial Fluid Systems

Flow coefficient or C v is the amount of water in U.S. gallons per minute that will flow through a valve with a 1 psi pressure drop across the valve and at a temperature of 60 F. With compressible fluids like gases calculating and using the C v parameter to predict flow is more complex but still provides an effective means to size valves

### Know Your Pump and System Curves

Dec 05 2016 However this is NOT the case for a control valve. As the flow rate through the control valve changes during the system curve generation process the pressure loss across the control valve will change to continue meeting set point. As the set point is met the pressure loss and flow rates are known and the Cv can be calculated.
