When both pinch valves and knife gate valves use hydraulic actuators, the closing time calculation becomes a bit more standardized due to the similar nature of the actuation mechanism. Hydraulic actuators can provide quick and powerful movements, which is beneficial for both types of valves, especially in applications requiring rapid shut-off. Here’s how you can approach estimating the closing times for both valves with hydraulic actuators:
This post cover a wide range of topics about steam valves, their applications, design considerations, and specific uses in steam systems.
Dive into our professional tips of selection valve accessories to ensure your valve system is operating at its best, adhering to the highest performance and safety standards.
In the rapidly evolving industrial landscape, the demand for efficient and reliable axial flow control valves has surged, underscoring the critical role these components play in operational integrity and system performance. For entities involved in engineering procurement and construction (EPC), along with valve wholesalers, importers, trading companies, engineering companies, brands, distributors, and agents, identifying the […]

Converts a valve’s CV (Flow Coefficient) to GPM (Gallons Per Minute), you would need to provide inputs for the CV value and the pressure drop across the valve (ΔP) in PSI (pounds per square inch), as the basic formula to convert CV to GPM under specific conditions is: where: CV is the valve’s flow coefficient,ΔP […]
To convert a valve’s CV (flow coefficient) to SCFM (Standard Cubic Feet per Minute), you need to consider the specific application conditions, including the type of fluid (gas), its pressure, and temperature. The CV value represents the flow rate of water in gallons per minute (GPM) through a valve with a pressure drop of 1 […]
The CV value in the context of a valve refers to the valve’s flow coefficient. It is a measure of the capacity of the valve to flow a fluid under specific conditions. The CV value is used to quantify the flow rate of fluids (liquids and gases) through a valve at a given pressure drop […]

Set pressure is the predetermined pressure at which the safety valve starts to open under operational conditions, measured as gauge pressure at the valve inlet. At this pressure, under specified operational conditions, the force generated by the medium pressure to open the valve is balanced with the force keeping the valve disc on the valve. In this post, we will let you know different set pressure of safety valves for different applications.
air valves automatically release entrapped air, preventing issues like headloss, flow reduction, and structural damage
