Understanding Cavitation and the Affects on Control Valve Performance
Cavitation can occur in control valves handling fluids, causing loud noise as well as damaging valve components and ultimately leading to additional costs in process plants. A standardized procedure to evaluate the destructiveness of cavitation-induced still does not exist whereas noise emission can reliably be predicted with the international EN 60534-8-4 standard. This article describes a method to solve this problem by evaluating structure-borne noise in the ultrasonic range.
