The engineers and developers at Georg Fischer Piping Systems work every day on technologically advanced product solutions to enable and improve the applications of our customers. Important factors hereby are the optimal design, installation, and application afterwards, and we are here to support every single step with competent guidance and practical advice wherever needed.
One of the most popular tools used by planners is the ever-growing selection of free online calculators provided by Georg Fischer under www.gfps.com/tools. Our newest addition supports you in calculating the optimal valve dimension for your project – fast and easy. This service eliminates extensive manual calculations which had to be performed and compared until now separately for each combination of relevant factors like pressures and flows.
Many planners still pick the same dimension for both valve and pipe automatically even though a smaller valve dimension is often beneficial. Proper sizing ensures the optimal working range for the valve, thereby preventing the system from consuming unnecessary energy or unnecessary shortening of the lifespan of the components. If correctly dimensioned, the valve can be one or even two dimensions smaller in many cases.
