A sizing tool developed specifically for GF Piping Systems’ pressure-control valve family can help users determine the proper valve size to ensure optimum valve performance and prevent valve damage.

“Selecting the proper PRV size is critical to optimal valve performance,” says Jeff Sixsmith, product manager for valves and actuation for GF Piping Systems. “Correct valve size also prevents potential valve damage.  Because the ideal PRV size can be different from the piping system size segment it is installed in, size selection may not be obvious.”

The user enters the valve type desired (pressure retaining or pressure reducing) and the process parameters. The program calculates the optimum valve size to select. Customers can access the tool at www.gfps.com.
