Flow data of isolating valves is normally used within the calculations for pipework sizing and system pressure losses when the valve is in the fully open position. Many on/off isolating valves spend most of the time in the fully open position and therefore these valves should have high KV figures to reduce pressure drops, increase plant efficiency and contribute to reducing energy costs.
The sizing of regulating valves requires detailed calculations for each case, taking into account e.g. noise and cavitation.
