I'm in need of some assistance in calculating some flow vs pressure specifications, in order to make some changes to the system.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a PRV valve that has a preset setting of:

PRV NO.1 & 2 SET PRESSURE = 1034 KPA (150 PSI) @ 0.63 L/S (10 USGPM)

Meanwhile the design criteria states the output to be:

PRV NO.1 & 2 OUTLET = 683 KPA (99 PSIG) @ 33 L/S (520 USGPM)

= 1034 KPA (150 PSIG) @ 0.63 L/S (10 USGPM)

I'm having difficulty determining or verifying the calculation that will prove that the flow @ 520 USGPM will yield a pressure drop to 99 PSIG, which equals 10 USGPM @ 150 PSIG.

Something just seems odd and I've tried a number of different formula's, obviously not the correct one. I'm hoping to understand what calculation was done, and conduct it again for a flow of 400 USGPM.

The valve is a FORD 4" PRV.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
