The flow coefficient is defined as the quantity of water in gallons per minute that a flow restriction
will pass when the pressure drop through the restriction is 1 psi.
Values for Cv for fully opened valves were extrapolated from test results for representative sizes of
ball valves
This data is for general information only. Design changes do become nesessary from time to time and
these could result in variations of the existing data. We therefore recommend that you check with your
local Cooper Cameron Valves sales office for any details which are critical to your operations.
