Does anyone know a good source on the web for accurate equivalent lengths of pipe fittings. I have searched & located several sites, but they all seem to vary significantly & especially compared to sample values in my mechanical engineering reference manual. I especially want to know the equivalent length for 4" & 6" ball valves.
p.s. I do not have name plate data to contact the manufacturer for the Cv values either.
