Difference Reduced Bore and Full Bore

Difference Reduced Bore and Full Bore

dear all,
I kindly request to all the specialyst, which are the process requirement in order to choose a REDUCING BORE or FULL BORE.
When I choose one respect the other.
Thanks and best Regards

RE: Difference Reduced Bore and Full Bore

Sounds like you are asking about a valve, or possibly a flow meter. You might want to post this question in the piping forum https://www.eng-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=378 or the valve forum https://www.eng-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=408

Even so, more detail in your question will give you better answers. In basic terms, a reduced bore valve or flow meter will have better control or metering response at low flow rates, but limits the maximum flow rate.

RE: Difference Reduced Bore and Full Bore

Reduced bore is common where you don't have to pig through the valve.

The is an increased pressure drop compared to full bore but this is usually negligible.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.
