Use Cla-Val Pacific’s Cavitation Guide as a quick overview of determining cavitation in modulating service valves. For on/off valves, please consult the factory.

More specific cavitation conditions can be determined from the Cla-CAV analysis program including static and dynamic inlet and outlet pressures, flow range, elevation, water temperature, and service conditions.  Please contact our factory at to request assistance.

The best defense against cavitation is to specify your Cla-Val Pacific’s KO Anti-Cavitation Trim in your new valve or order a KO retrofit kit for valves already installed in your distribution system.
