A Brief Introduction of Butterfly ValvePublish:prwiremesh | Time: Tuesday, November 29, 2011
Butterfly valve refers to a valve whose closure element is a disc which rounds with its shaft to control the valve's on and off to play a role of cutting and throttling on the pipeline, and it is also called flap valve which is simple structured regulating valve, and also be used as the on-off control of low pressure pipeling amboceptor.
The full open or full close of the butterfly valve is smaller than 90°. There has no self-locking capacity of the disc and pole, so it is necessary to add a worm reducer on the pole for the disc's orientation. Adding a worm reducer is not only can enable the self-locking capacity of the disc, but also improve the operating performance of the disc for which can stop at any location.
The industry dedicated butterfly valve possesses the properties of resistance to high temperature, suitable for wide pressure, large nominal diameter. And it is made of carbon steel and the seal ring is apply metal ring to instead rubber ring. The heavy high temperature butterfly is produced by steel plate welding to be used as the high temperatured smoke flue of gas conduit.
Generally speaking, butterfly valve is suitable to control and cutting fluid to used in the piping system of producer, coal gas, natual gas, liquefied petroleum gas, city gas, cold and hot air, chemical and smelting and power generation thoes engineering system transporting various corrosive and non-corrosive fluid medium.
