About Cv to Gpm Calculator (Formula)
The Cv to GPM Calculator is a tool used to convert a valve’s flow coefficient (Cv) and pressure differential (PSI) into gallons per minute (GPM).
The formula used in the calculation is as follows:
GPM = Cv * √(Pressure Differential)
In this formula, the Cv represents the valve flow coefficient, which is a measure of the flow capacity of the valve. The Pressure Differential refers to the difference in pressure across the valve.
By entering the Cv and the Pressure Differential values into the calculator, it can quickly determine the corresponding flow rate in gallons per minute (GPM).
This calculator is commonly used in various fields, including engineering, fluid dynamics, and HVAC systems, to estimate the flow rate through valves and understand their performance characteristics.
