Diaphragm valve hydraulic behavior depending on operating pressure
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, a hydraulically operated and diaphragm-actuated type of diaphragm valve using an elastic diaphragm was tested. With this type of valve, the opening fraction depends on the pipeline pressure; thus, it is important to determine the minimum operating pressure. The outlet pressure was revealed as the critical pressure ensuring the full opening. The valve flow coefficient was found to be a good indicator of the valve opening fraction. A test procedure was presented to determine the minimum outlet pressure. The pressure had to be continuously increased during testing to avoid hysteresis. An unsteady valve behavior was observed after a sudden intense pressure drop.

Data on section's discharge depending on scheduling of pressurized irrigation networks [Research data] Monserrat Viscarri, Joaquín (Universitat de Lleida, 2012-07)Data of three real networks are presented. The objective is to assess the cost reduction achieved when rotation scheduling is applied instead of on-demand scheduling. Demand discharges were calculated using Clement's ...
Monserrat Viscarri, Joaquín; Alduán, Andres (Springer Nature, 2020-07-10)Rotation scheduling implies a reduction in pipe flows and, consequently, in network cost. This kind of scheduling is considered rigid, but the recent development of new technologies, such as Supervisory Control And Data ...
