Control Valve Sizing
May 7, 2021
Selecting the Best Control Valve for Existing Service Conditions
Users often cite oversizing as a significant control valve problem. Unfortunately, an oversized valve can incur a sizable economic penalty and cause significant operating problems. To make ordering easy, Emerson provides several easy to use tools to ensure you are getting the correct size for your liquid or gas services.
When using the Globe Valve Sizing Tool, simply use the drop down specifications and you will be provided with the correct product for your service condition. The Fisher Specification Manager software offers a powerful set of tools for producing an ISA specification sheet faster, improving noise prediction calculations and exporting dimensional data for Fisher and Baumann control valves. The software is easy to learn and helps take the worry out of control valve specification. Contact a PCE Pacific Representative for assistance or to learn more about control valve sizing.
