IGLESIAS-REY, Pedro L.; FUERTES-MIQUEL, Vicente S.; GARCIA-MARES, Francisco J.  and  MARTINEZ-SOLANO, F. Javier. Characterization of Commercial Air Intake and Exhaust Valves. Tecnol. cienc. agua [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.1, pp.57-69. ISSN 2007-2422.

The objective of this work was to performed a detailed study of the actual behavior of different valves (air intake and exhaust). The first part of the work describes the different experimental techniques used to characterize the valves. The second part uses an air valve bench test developed by Bermad CS at its Evron factory, Israel, to perform statistical studies with different commercial valves. Lastly, a comparative analysis is described of the behavior of the different models analyzed, including an analysis of the best coefficients for the mathematical characterization of these devices.

Keywords : Air valves; test bench entrapped air; air flaw curves; laboratory.
