Glossary - Cv
The flow coefficient - Cv - required for a specific application can be estimated by using specific formulas for the different fluids or gases. With the estimated Cv value - the correct valve can be selected from the manufacturers catalogues.
In North America the flow is usually described in imperial units - GPM (gallons per minute) of water that a valve will pass for a pressure drop of 1 lb/in2 (psi).
Conversion between Flow Coefficient Cv and Flow Factor Kv can be expressed as:
Cv = 1.16 Kv (1)
