Liquid Flow in Control Valves

This one hour webinar discusses the nature of the flow of liquids through control valves. The mechanisms of choked flow, cavitation and flashing are discussed along with the resulting potential for valve damage and excessive noise. Methods of eliminating cavitation damage, both through valve style selection, and process modifications are discussed. A method of predicting the potential for cavitation damage through noise level analysis is presented. Each participant will receive a certificate of completion in the mail.

Who should attend?

Technicians and engineers who want to know how to properly apply control valves in liquid service, or those who need to
solve problems that are caused by improperly selected control valves.


  • Choked flow and cavitation
  • Hydrodynamic noise
  • Valve damage
  • Prevention of cavitation through special valve design
  • Changing the process to eliminate cavitation
  • Noise as a predictor of cavitation damage

The speaker, Dr. Jon F. Monsen, PE, is a Control Valve Technology Specialist at Valin Corporation where he specializes in training, control valve applications, and smart digital pro ducts. Prior to joining Valin, he was a technology specialist at Metso Automation (parent company of Neles and Jamesbury) for 25 years.
