CAVITATION IN BUTTERFLY VALVES

Tests made at Colorado State University have resulted in a generalization of cavitation data making them useful in developing pipeline designs utilizing butterfly valves as controls. Related cavitation design criteria evolved from the tests and the cavitation parameters considered in developing designs for water systems in which butterfly valves are used, are presented. The importance of scale effects related to system pressure and size of valve is stressed and procedures for adjusting for these scale effects are outlined.
