Kalsi Valve and Actuator Calculating Program
KVAP and CVAP Software
KVAP, the Kalsi Valve & Actuator Program, is state-of-the-art software developed by Kalsi Engineering, Inc. (KEI) for performing reliable design basis calculations for all common types of valves and actuators used in air operated valves (AOVs) and motor operated valves (MOVs).
The KVAP software incorporates validated models that the industry was lacking for many different types of valves commonly used in AOV/MOV applications, this enable reliable design basis calculations for accurately quantifying AOV/MOV margins. KVAP will provide justification for design basis verification testing requirements of ASME O&M Code Mandatory Appendices III & IV.
