Calculations are based on the following standards

»  ANSI / ISA-75.01.01 (IEC 60534-2-1 Mod) -2007

»  ASME B36.10M-2004

»  IEC-Aerodynamic 60534-8-3 (for gases 2010-11), IEC-Hydrodynamic 60534-8-4 (for liquids 2005-08)

CALCULATIONS

DETAIL OVERVIEW

»  KV, KVS und CVS Values (KVS = KV plus 30% security)

»  Valve inflow and outflow velocity

»  Connection size (flange/thread size)

»  Noise emission

»  Flow velocity upstream and downstream of the valve

»  Saturated steam temperature

»  Display of material properties (database with more than 50 media and their properties (can be customized in the "Expert Plus Mode"))

»  Possibility to change the measurement units, the programme will automatically convert the values

»  Reduction ratio

Warnings, recommendations, notices

»  Phase changeover

»  Cavitation

»  Noise pressure level (seperate noise pressure level rating for liquids and gases according to IEC-Aerodynamic 60534-8-3 (for Gases 2010-11),
    IEC-Hydrodynamic 60534-8-4 (for liquids 2005-08))

»  Recommended pipe extension

»  Hard-facing of cone / seat (recommendation as per internal guideline by Mankenberg GmbH)

»  Pressure loss calculation after selection of the valve (for an idealised 10 m long pipeline section downstream of the valve)

»  Flow velocity exceeding velocity limits

DATA STORAGE (ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE DOWNLOAD-VERSION)

INTEGRATED HELPER FUNCTIONS

»  Flange helper, depending on temperature, pressure, nominal diameter and material (as per DIN, JIS, ASME)

»  PED categorisation incl. article description

»  Selection of the optimal safety valve size (response pressure, KV value)

»  Valve is ranged into its operating characteristic diagram (graph)

EXPORT

All rights reserved, all indications without engagement, subject to modifications.

No liability is assumed for the correctness or completeness of the calculated design data.

In addition to the easy and comfortable determination of the KV, KVS and CVS values,
ValvePilot also calculates further useful values such as:

»  Noise pressure level

»  Nominal diameter

»  Inflow and outflow velocity

»  Reduction ratio

 

Moreover, ValvePilot provides warnings or recommendations for problematic
designs and offers helper functions that simplify the way to find the suitable valve.
