It’s a whole lot more than just choosing a valve that’s between 60-80% open! When control valve professionals talk about "control valve sizing," they really mean the entire process of selecting the valve that will do the best job of controlling the process. Selecting the right size valve is an important part of the process, but there are other equally important considerations as well.
Includes insights on how to properly size and select a control valve, selecting the right valve flow characteristic to match the process, control valve installed characteristics and installed gain, how analysis of installed gain can aid in proper control valve selection, behavior of both gas flow and liquid flow in control valves, including noise reduction methods, prediction and reduction of cavitation damage in liquid applications, impact of the control valve on undesired process variability, and valve performance recommendations.
In addition to his book, Jon conducts a series of webinars on the following topics:
- Control Valve Overview
- Effect of Control Valve Sizing and Flow Characteristic on Controllability
- Liquid Flow in Control Valves
- Gas Flow and Aerodynamic Noise in Control Valves
- Control Valves and Process Variability
- Installed Gain as a Control Valve Selection Criterion
