The final round of lab testing wrapped up this week. Flow test data gathered at the Radford Company valve test facility confirmed predictions of CFD simulations made prior to the launch of VSI. Maximum Flow Coefficient was measured to be 75 in turbulent flow. The HBGV1 was confirmed to have negligible pressure recovery in the valve and an effective CsubV of nearly 60 in full choked flow as pressure recovered far downstream.
