Quick Opening Characteristic

Quick opening is an inherent flow characteristic of which valve flow coefficient (Cv) is significantly increased during valve traveling on minimum opening region and slightly increased during valve traveling on maximum opening region.

Below picture shows relationship between travel against valve flow coefficient (Cv):


Quick opening valve is mostly used in application where valve is intended for on-off operation.
