1. To select the correct valve size, calculate Kv value

**Input data:**

inlet pressure

required volumetric flow

allowed pressure drop (DP)

**Result :** Kv value

2. To determine the volumetric flow passing the valve

**Input data:**

inlet pressure

Kv value of the valve

allowed pressure drop (DP)

**Result:** Actual volumetric flow

3. To determine the required pressure drop across the valve to reach the desirable volumetric flow

**Input data:**

inlet pressure

Kv value of the valve

desirable volumetric flow

**Result:** Required pressure drop (DP)

### How to use this Kv sizing Calculator

1. Select the correct sheet according to the medium. (air or water or steam)

2. Select either the medium or the specific gravity (except for steam).

3. Select the unit of inlet pressure

4. Select the unit of flow coefficient

5. Select the unit of volumetric flow

6. Select the unit of pressure drop (DP)

7. Use temperature correction if necessary (available option only at Air & Gases sheet).

8. Enter the input data, BLUE colored numbers

9. The results are marked with RED colored numbers.

**Other options, table and conversion tables.**

1. Estimated orifice size of the Kv values.

2. Conversion table of different flow coefficients.

3. Assistance to determine saturated steam pressure relating to temperature.

4. Print sheet: you can print out of the results. (do not forget to select the right medium sheet)

5. Conversion table for different units of measure of pressure.
