Technical Workshop

“To Cv or Not to Cv”

Monday, March 11, 2018

Presented by Jon Jensen, CFPAI, SMC Corporation of America and Thomas Blansett, CFPAI, IFPS Technical Director

8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Registration: $150.00 (lunch included)

The focus of this workshop will be sizing pneumatic valves using ISO 6538:1989 - rating valve performance.  Exploration of sizing with ANSI standards using Cv versus sizing using sonic conductance and b-values following ISO standards (widely adopted throughout the world, except the US,) since it is a more accurate predictor of valve performance, and looking at high-speed operations and the effects of moisture in the lines. Risk management for high-speed pneumatic systems along with ISO 6538:1989 Machinery Safety, with discussion of the Machinery Directive as per ISO-12100, and Safety Related Parts of Control Systems as per ISO-13849 will be addressed.
