    I was asked this question today, and figured i’d be better served reaching out to our audience for a more technically accurate answer?

    Hello,
    I do not think there is any special reference to “throttling” valves as with other valves. The common issue many industries have, including oil and gas, is using valves that are designed not to be throttled (gate, ball, etc) and are causing serious damage by excessive flows from the bernoulli’s equation. Globe valves are the best valves to throttle of course.
    A good reference I found on valves in Oil and Gas is listed here.
