Early Butterfly Valve Testing with Incompressible Flow

Kalsi Engineering (KEI) conducted a water flow test program for butterfly valves for the nuclear industry as part of the EPRI Performance Prediction Methodology (PPM) between 1993 and 1994. The EPRI PPM program included model development for gate, globe, and butterfly valves. The water flow loop test program included scaling validation by comparing the predictions based upon KEI flow loop testing of a precisely scaled 6-inch model to  a 42-inch single offset design. The 42-inch valve was tested at the Utah Water Research Laboratory (UWRL) at Utah State University. The early technology developed by KEI was used in the ERPI PPM software (read more about EPRI PPM here).

KEI started a self-funded water flow loop test program to expand the library of hydrodynamic torque coefficients for butterfly valves in 1999. The
