either sizing
calculations
or dimensional
drawings. Rest
is for spec

4. Fill in Remaining
Spaces **
5. Click on
Valve Sizing

1. Select your
fluid type *

changed
between
conditions.

view the

in PDF or

been filtered
using information
provided to help
reduce selection

the filters gives
more options,
but may result in
incorrect sizing.

1. Select a Valve type *


* Clicking on the
attribute name
selects the valve.

is to only pick

are less than or
equal to the line

greater than
the line size.
In this case, we
have decided to
look at a 2
valve (which is
our line size).
