* For All Non-Venting Back Pressure and Non-Venting Pressure Reducing Regulators, small pressure drops reduce the Cv of the valve:
  • Pressure drops of 3 psi or less, multiply valve Cv by 0.5
  • Pressure drops from 3.01 to 6 psi, multiply valve Cv by 0.8
  • Pressure drops from 6.01 to 12 psi, multiply valve Cv by 0.9
