Ball Valve Flow Coefficients - Cv

Flow coefficients - Cv - for typical ball valves - reduced and full bore

Sponsored Links

A conventional ball valve is normally not used as a throttling valve since a partial flow will create high velocity flow tear at the ball and the seal.

These values are suitable for estimates only. Since the bore in valves varies the valve manufacturer should always be consulted for the actual Cv for the valve selected.
