Valve sizing charts
Approximate pressure drops for various valve sizes and flows may be determined by using this graph.
Typically, pressure drop for fuel flows should not exceed 10% of inlet pressure.
Select valve size on basis of the lower of these parameters to avoid critical flow conditions.

Approximate pressure drops for various valve sizes and flows may be determined by using this graph.
Typicallly, pressure drop for fuel flows should not exceed 10% of inlet pressure; however, for 2” and smalller valves, the drop
should not exceed 5 psig, and for 2-1/2” and larger size valves, must not exceed 2.5 psig.
Select valve siz e on basis of the lower of these parameters to avoid critical flow conditions.
