Unformatted text preview: ere is a factor of 2 spread among the various manufacturers. Note that K in Fig. 6.19b is, as usual, based on the average pipe velocity V Q/A, not on the increased velocity of the flow as it passes through the narrow valve passage.

The loss coefficients K in Fig. 6.20 are for this additional bend loss. The Moody loss due to the axial length of the bend must be com...
