INTRODUCTION

'--"

Valtek uses a systematic method for selecting bodytypes, sizes, materials, pressure ratings and trim sizesbasad on flow characteristics.

Valtek control valva flow capacity (C) is basad upon theindustry standard, ANSI/ISA S75.01. This standardand the corresponding measuring standards containEquations usad to predict the flow of compressible andincompressible fluids in control valves. Slightly differ-ent forms of the basic Equation are usad for liquids andgases.

Basic steps for sizing and selecting the correGí valvainclude calculating the required Cv' Equations for calcu-lating Cvfor both gases and liquids are found in ibissection.

Valtek has programmed the ANSI/ISA sizing Equationsand procedures, making computer-aided sizing avail-able on 18M-PC or compatible computers. Theseprograms permit rapidcontrol valva flow capacity calcu-lations and valva selection with minimal effort. Theprograms also include exit velocity, noise predictionand actuator sizing calculations. Sea Section 22 formore details on computer-aided valva selection.

These instructions are designad to expose the usar tothe different aspects of valva sizing. The step-by-stepmethod outlined in ibis section is the most commonmethod of sizing.

NOMENCLATURE

When selecting a control valva for an application, thecalculated C is usad to determine the valva size and thev

trim size that will allow the valva to pass the desired flowrata and provide stable control of the process fluido

Pressure Profile

C = flowv

Fluid flowing through a control valva obeys the basiclaws of conservation of mass and energy, anct ;i/:1écontinuity Equation. The control valva acts as a resure-tion in the flow stream. As the fluid stream approachesibis restriction, its velocity increases in arder for thefull fJow to pass through the restriction. Energy foribis increase in velocity comes from a correspondingdecrease in pressure.

Maximum velocity and mínimum pressure occur imme-diately downstream from the throttling point at thenarrowest constriction of the fluid stream, known as thevena contracta. Downstream from the vena contracta,the fluid slows and part of the energy (in the form ofvelocity) is converted back to pressure. A simplifiedprefije of the fluid pressure is shown in Figure 3-1. Theslight pressure losses in the inlet and outlet passagesare due to frictional effects. The majar excursions ofpressure are due to the velocity changas in the regionof the vena contracta.

Figure 3-2: Choked Pressure Drop

Allowable Pressure DropThe capacity curva shown in Figure 3-2 shows that, withconstant upstream pressure, flow rata, q, is relatad tothe square root of pressure drop through the proportion-ality constant Cv' The curva departs from a linearrelationship at the onset of "choking" described usingthe F¡factor. Th~flow rata reaches a maximum, qmax'atthe fully choked condition due to effects of cavitation forliquids or sonic velocity for compressible fluids. Thetransition to choked flow may be gradual or abrupt,depending on valva designo ANSI/ISA liquid sizingEquations use a pressure recovery factor, FL'to calcu-late the L1PChat which choked flow is assumed for sizingpurposes. For compressible fluids, a terminal pressuredrop ralla, xT' similarly describes the choked pressuredrop for a specific valva.When sizing a control valva, the smaller of the actualpressure drop or the choked pressure drop is alwaysusad to determine the correGíCv. This pressure drop isknown as the allowable pressure drop, L1Pa'

Cavitation

In liquids, when the pressure anywhere in the liquiddrops below the vapor pressure of the fluid, vaporbubblesbégin tóform in the fluid stream. As the fluid

,decelerafestpere is a resultant increase in pressure. Ifthis pressÜreis higher than the vapor pressure, thebubblescollapse (or implode) as the vapor returns to the

, liqUid phase. This two-stepmechanism - callad:cavifation - procjuces noise, vibration, and causes

"'erosion damage to the valva and downstream piping.

, .,Theonset of cavitation - known as rncipient cavitation<"~ is the point when the bubblesfirst begin to form and

Liquid Pressure Recovery Factor, FLThe liquid pressure recovery factor, FL' predictstheamount of pressurerecoverythat will occur betweenthe vena contracta and the valva outlel. FL is anexperimentally determinad coefficient that accounts forthe influence of the valve's infernal geometry on themaximum capacity of the valva. It is determinad fromcapacity test data like that shown in Figure 3-2.

FLalso varias according to the valva type. High recov-ery valves - such as butterfly and ball valves - havesignificantly lower pressures atthe vena contracta andhence recover much farther forthe sama pressure dropthan a gleba valva. Thus theytend to choke (orcavitate)at smaller pressure drops than gleba valves.

~

Liquid Critical Pressure Ratio Factor, FF

The liquid critical pressure rallo factor, FF'multiplied bythe vapor pressure, predicts the theoretical vena con-tracta pressure at the maximum effective (choked)pressure drop across the valva.

Flashing

If the downstream pressure is equal to or less than thevapor pressure, the vapor bubbles created at the venacontracta do not collapse, resulting in a liquid-gasmixtura downstream of the valva. This is commonlycallad flashjng. When flashing of a liquid occurs, theinlet fluidis 100 percent liquid which experiences pres-sures in and downstream of the control valve which areat or below vapor pressure. The result is a two phasemixtura (vaporand liquid) at the valva outlet and in thedownstream piping. Velocity of this two phase flow isusually very high and results in the possibility for erosionof the valva and piping components.

....

Choked Flow

Choked flow occurs in gases and vapors when the fluidvelocity reaches sonic values at any point in the valvabody, trim, or pipa. As the pressure in the valva or pipais lowered, the specific volume increases to the pointwhere sonic velocity is reached. In liquids, vaporformad as the result of cavitation or flashing increasesthe specific volume of the fluid at a tastar rata than theincrease in flow due to pressure differential. Loweringthe downstream pressure beyond this point in eithercase will not increase the flow rata for a constantupstream pressure. The velocity at any point in thevalva or downstream piping is limitad to sonic(Mach = 1). As a result, the flow rata will be limitad toan amount which yields a sonic velocity in the valva trimor the pipa under the specified pressure conditions.

Reynolds Number Factor, FR

The Reynolds Number Factor, FR'is usad to correGíthecalculated C for non-turbulent flow conditions due tov

high viscosity fluids, very low velocities, or very smallvalva C .v

~.~

I

Piping Geometry Factor, Fp

Valva sizing coefficients are determinad from tests runwith the valva mounted in a straight run of pipa whiéh isthe sama diameter as the valva body. If the processpiping configurations are different from the standard testmanifold, the apparent valva capacity is changed. Theeffect of reducers and increasers can be approximatedbythe use of the piping geometry factor, FP'

Velocity

As a general ruja, valva outlet velocities should belimitad to the following maximum values:

.-."The above figures are guidelines for typical applica-tions. In general,smaller sized valves handle slightlyhigher velocities and larga valves handle lower veloci-tieso Special applications have particular velocity re-quirements; a few of which are provided below.

Liquid applications - where the fluid temperatura isclase to the saturation point - should be limitad to 30feet par second to avoid reducing the fluid pressurebelow the vapor pressure. This is also an appropriatelimit for applications designad to pass the full flow ratawith a mínimum pressure drop across the valva.

Valves in cavitating service should also be limitad to 30feet par second to minimiza damage to the downstreampiping. This will also localiza the pressure recoverywhich causes cavitation immediately downstream fromthe vena contracta.

In flashing services, velocities become much higherdueto the increase in volume resulting from vapor forma-tion. For most applications, it is important to keepvelocities below 500 feet par secando Expanded outletstyle valves - such as the Mark One-X - help to controloutlet velocities on such applications. Erosion damagecan be limitad by using chrome-moly body material andhardened trim. On smaller valva applications whichremain closed for mostofthe time - such as heater drainvalves - higher velocities of 800 to 1500 feet par secondmay be acceptable with appropriate mataríais.

'-'

Gas applications where special noise attenuation trimare usad should be limitad to approximately 0.33.Mach.In adclition, pipa velocities downstream fromthe valvaare critical to the overall noise level. Experimentationhas shown that velocities around 0.5 Mach can createsubstantial noise even in a straight pipa. The additionof a control valva to the line will increase the turbulencedownstream, resulting in even higher noise levels.

Expansion Factor, Y

The expansion factor, Y, accounts for the variation ofspecific weight as the gas passes from the valva inlet tothe vena contracta. It also accounts for the c~ange incross-sectional area of the vena contracta as the pres-sure drop is variad.

Ratio of Specific Heats Factor, Fk

The ratio of specific heats factor, Fk,adjusts the Equa-tion to account for different behavior of gasesother thanair.

Terminal Pressure Drop Rallo, XT

The terminal pressure drop ratio for gases, xT' isused topredict the choking point where additional pressuredrop (by lowering the downstream pressure) will notproduce additional flow due to the sonic velocity limita-tion across the vena contracta. This factor is a function

of the valva geometry and varias similarly to FL' depend-ing on the valva type.

Compressibility Factor, Z

The compressibility factor, Z, is a function of the tem-perature and the pressure of a gas. It is usad todetermine the density of a gas in relationship to itsactual temperatureand pressure conditions.

It may also be useful to determine the point at whichsubstantial cavitation begins. The following Equationdefines the pressure drop at which substantial cavita-tion begins:

~P (cavitation) = F¡2 (P1 - Py) (3.5)

In high pressure applications, alternate analysis may berequired; verify analysis with factory if~P ~ ~P (cavita-tion) ~ 300 psi (globe valves) or 100 psi (rotary valves).

Where:F¡ =Liquidcavitation factor

(Typical values for F¡are given in Table 3-1)

P1 = Upstream pressure, psia

Py = Vaporpressureof the liquid,psia

The required Cvfor flashing applications is determinadby using the appropriate ~P allowable [~PChcalculatedfrom Equation 3.3].

Step 3: Determine Specific Gravity

Specific gravity is generally available for the flowingfluid at the operating temperatura. The appendix pro-vides fluid property data for 268 chemical com"pounds,from which the specific;gravity, Gf can be calculated.

Step 4: Calculate Approximate Cy

Generally the effects of nonturbulent flow can be ig-nored, provided the valva is not operatjng in a laminarortransitional flowregion due to high viscosity, very lowvelocity, orsmall Cv.lnthe eventthere is some question,calculate the Cy,from Equation 3.1, a9suming Fp=1,andthen proceed to steps 5-7.

The trim number and flowcharacteristic (Section 9) may be affected by how thevalva will be throttled. When cavitaiton is indicated,retar to Section 14 to evaluate special trims for cavita-tion protection.

Flow Characteristic Equal Percentage.

Step 1: Calculate actual pressure drop using Equation(3.2).

~

AP = 314.7 psia - 104.7 psia = 210 psi

Step 2: Check for choked flow. Find FLusing Table 3-1. Looking under "globe, flow-under," find FLas 0.90.Next,estímateFF usingEquation3.4:

~ oFF = 0.96 - 0.28 = 0.93

3206.2

Insert FL and FF into Equation 3.3:

APch = (0.90)2 [314.7 - (0.93)(30)] = 232.3 psi

SinGathe actual AP is less than APch' the flow is notchoked; therefore, use the smaller (or actual AP) to sizethe valva.

At this point, also check for incipient cavitation usingEquation 3.5 and Table 3-1: "

AP (cavitation) = (0.81)2(314.7-30)= 187 psi

SinGaAP (actual) exceeds AP (cavitation), substantialcavitation is occurring, but flow is not choked. Specialattention should be paid to material and trini sel~ction.

Step 3: The specific gravity for water is given as 0.94

Step 4: CalculatetheapproximateCvFp usingEquation3.1 and assumingFp is 1.0:

Step 10: Using Equation 3.7, the velocity for a 2-inchbody is found to be nearly 51 ft(sec.Since this applica-tion is cavitating, damage may result in a 2-inch valva.A 3-inch body reduces velocity to about 23 ft/sec which

NOTE: In this example, a 2 x 4-inch Mark One -X mightalso be chÓsen. It is less costly than a 3-inch valve andtl)e larger outlets willlower the velocities. It will also beless costly fo install in a 4-inch line.

Step 3: The specific gravity for ammonia is given as0.65

Step 4: Calculate the approximate Cy using Equation3.1 :

~

Cy = 850 J 0.6578.2= 77.5

Step 5: From the Cytablas (Mark One, flow-over, linear,Class 600) select the smallest body Bize for a Cyof 77 .5,which is a 3-inch body.

Steps 6 and 7: Turbulent flow is assumed, so ReynoldsNumberFactoris ignorad,FR = 1.0.

Step 8: With the 3-inch body and 3-inch line, Fp = 1.

Step 9: SinGaFp = 1, the final Cyremains as 77.5.

Step 10: Using Equation 3.7, the velocity for a 3-inchbody is found to be ovar 38 ft/sec. SinGathis applicationis cavitating, this velocity may damage a 3-inch valva.However, sinGathe Bize is restricted to a 3-inch line, alargar valva size cannot be chosen to lower the velocity.Damage problems may result from such a system. Acavitation control style trim should be suggested; seaSection 14.

Step 11: If cavitation control trim is not selected, Cyrecalculation is not necessary sinGathe body size ortrill1 style did not changa.

Step 12: Heferring to the Cytablas, a Cy77.5, 3-inchvalva would use atrim numberof2.000rthefull sizetrimn!1mber 2.62. Use of this trim, however, could result incavitationdamage to body and trim; sea Section 14.

Flashing Liquids Velocity CalculationsWhen the valva outlet pressure is lower than or aquel toth,~saturation pressure for the fluid temperatura, part ofthe fluid flashes into vapor. When flashing exists, thefollowing calculations must be usad to determine veloc-ity. Flashing requires special trim designs and/orhardened materials. Flashingvelocity greater than 500ftlsec requires special body designs. If flow rafe is in lb/hr:

if the flow rata is given in gpm, the following Equationcan be usad:

Av = Valva outlet flow area, in2,sea Table 3-VIII.

V'2 = Saturated liquid specific volume (fP/lb atoutlet pressure)

Vg2= Saturated vapor specific volume (fP/lb atoutlet pressure)

x = % of liquid mass flashed to vapor

v. +10;% vj(3.9)

Calculating Percentage Flash

The % flash (x) can be calculated as follows:

(h -h

)x = f1 f2 X 100%

h'92

(3.10)

Where:

x = % of liquid mass flashed to vapor

h'1= Enthalpy of saturated liquid at inlettemperatura

h'2= Enthalpy of saturated liquid at outletpressure

hfg2= Enthalpy of evaporation at outlet:pressure

For water, the enthalpies (hf1' hf2and hfg2)and specificvolumes (Vf2and Vg2)can be found in the saturationtemperatura and pressure tablas of any set of steamtablas.

Flashing Liquid Example

Assume the sama conditions exigí as in Example OIl.É3,

except that the temperatura is 3500 F rather than 2500F. By referring to the saturated steam temperaturatablas, you find that the saturation pressure of wateí tlt3500 F is 134.5 psia, which is greater than the outletpressure of 105 psia (90 psia). Therefore, the fluid isflashing. SinGa a portion- of the liquid is flashing,Equations 3.9 and 3.1Omustbe usad. x (%flashed) canbe determinad by using Equation 3.10:

h'1 = 321.8 Btu/lb at 3500 F(from saturation temperatura tablas)

h'2 = 302.3 Btu/lb at 105 psia(from saturatioh pressure tablas)

hfg2= 886.4 Btu/lb ~t 105 psia(from saturatlon pressure tablas)

(321.8 -302;3

) x 1909/0= 2.2%x = 886.4

Therefore, the velocity in a 3-inch valva can be deter-minad by using Equation 3.9:

Vf2 = 0.0178 fP/lb at 105 psia(from saturation pressure tablas)

Vg2 = 4.234 fP/lb at 105 psia(from saturation pressure tablas)

FkxTshould be used in place of x (whenever it applies)in the gas sizing Equations.

Introduction

The method of Cv calculation for two ph¡3.sefJow as-sumes that the gas and liquid passJhrough the valvaorífice at the sama velocity. The requrred Cv is deter-minad by using an equivaJentdénsity fer theHquid g'asmixtura. This method is intended for use with mixturesof a liquid and a non-condensable gas. To size valVeswith liquids and their own vapor at the valva ihlet willrequire good engineering judgement.Nomenclature:

Av= flow area of body port (Table 3-VIII)

~pa = allowablepressuredropqf= volumetric flow rafe of liquid, ff3/hr

q = volumetric flow rafe of gas, ff3/hr9

wf = liquid flow rafe, Ib/hr

w = gas flow rafe, Ib/hr9

Gf = liquid specific gravity at upstream conditions

G = gas specific gravity at upstream conditions9

T1 = upstream temperatura (O R)

'-'

Step1: Calculate theLimiting PressureDropFirst it must be determinad whether liquid or gas is thecontinuous phase at the vena contracta. This is done bycomparing the volumetric flow rafe of the liquid and gas.Whichever is greater will be the limiting factor:

If qf > qg'then ~Pa= ~Pafor liquidIf q > qf' then ~P = ~Pfor gasg. a a

The ~P afor liquid or gas is either P1- P2or the chokedpressure drop of the dominating phase if the valva ischoked. (See the gas and liquid choked pressureEquations.)

Step 2: Calculate the Equivalent SpecificVolume of the Liquid-gas Mixture

Area = applicable flow area

After calculating the exit velocity, compare that numberto the acceptable velocity for that application. Select alargar valva size if necessary. '

Recommended two phase flow velocity limits are simi-lar to those for flashing when the gaseoús phase is '

dominant. If liquid is the dominant phase, velocity of th~mixtura should be less than 50 ft/sec in the body.

Step 8: Recalculate Cy if Body Size ChangedRecalc~late Cvif Fp has been changed due to the selectionof a largar body size.

Ste~9: Select Trim Number

Identify if the valva will be usad for en/off or throttlingservice. Using the Cvtablas in Section 4, select theappropriate trim number for the calculated Cvand bodysize selected. The trim number and flow characteristic(Section 9) may be affectedby how the valva is throttled.

"Special trim and mataríais may be required if high noiselevels or cavitation are indicated.
