### Pressure and Flow rate

Flow rate and Pressure Flow rate In the nozzle business we are concerned with flow rate through a nozzle or sometimes flow rate through a pipe. What causes a liquid or gas a fluid to flow With nozzle applications it’s almost always a pressure difference that causes flow. A fluid will try to flow from high pressure to low pressure.

• ### The relation between Valve Size and Medium Flow Velocity

1. The flow rate and flow velocity of the valve mainly depend on the diameter of the valve and the resistance of the structure of the valve to the medium. At the same time they are intrinsically related to the pressure temperature and concentration of the medium in the valve.. 2.
