Specify the latent heat of vaporization and unit of measure. 51. Specify the operating temperature and unit of measure. 52. Specify the actual temperature at relieving conditions and unit of measure. 53. Specify the increase in pressure in the discharge header as a result of ßow. 54. Specify the amount of superimposed back pressure that normally exists on the valve outlet and unit of measure. If back
pressure is variable, specify the minimum and maximum. 55. Specify the set pressure at which the valve is adjusted to open on the test stand. The cold differential test pressure
includes corrections to the set pressure for the service conditions of back pressure or temperature or both. 56. Specify the overpressure allowed, as a percent of set pressure or as a unit of measure. 57. Specify the compressibility factor, if used. 58. Give the speciÞc heat ratio as kp = Cp/Cv. 59. Specify the calculated oriÞce area, in square in. 60. Specify the selected effective oriÞce area in square in. 61. Specify the letter designation of the selected oriÞce. 62. Fill in the name of the manufacturer, if desired. 63. Fill in the manufacturerÕs model or type numbers, if desired. 64. Fill in the manufacturerÕs oriÞce area (in square in.), if desired. 65. Fill in the manufacturerÕs coefÞcient of discharge, if desired. 66. --``,,,`,``,,`````,,,,,`,,,``-`-`,,`,,`,`,,`--- 34. ConÞrmation of oriÞce sizing calculations required from vendor.
