To share with you as a Butterfly Valve Supplier. Butterfly valve is a valve that uses a disc-shaped opening and closing piece to revolve around 90 ° to open, close or adjust the medium flow. The butterfly valve is not only simple in structure, small in size, light in weight, low in material consumption, small in installation size, small in driving torque, easy to operate, and fast, but also has good flow regulating function and closed sealing characteristics. It has been developed in recent decades. One of the fastest valve varieties. Butterfly Valve is very widely used. The variety and quantity of its use continue to expand, and it has developed to high temperature, high pressure, large caliber, high sealing, long life, excellent regulating characteristics, and multi-function of a valve. Its reliability and other performance indicators have reached a high level.

With the application of chemically resistant synthetic rubber to butterfly valves, the performance of butterfly valves has improved. Synthetic rubber has the characteristics of corrosion resistance, erosion resistance, stable size, good resilience, easy forming, and low cost. It can also choose synthetic rubber with different properties according to different application requirements to meet the working conditions of butterfly valves.

Because polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) has strong corrosion resistance, stable performance, not easy to age, low coefficient of friction, easy to form, and stable in size, and can improve its comprehensive performance by filling and adding appropriate materials to obtain better strength and friction. The sealing material of butterfly valve with lower coefficient overcomes the limitation of synthetic rubber. Therefore, the polymer materials represented by polytetrafluoroethylene and its filling and modification materials have been widely used in butterfly valves, thus making the performance of butterfly valves It has been further improved, and a butterfly valve with a wider temperature and pressure range, reliable sealing performance and longer service life has been manufactured.

In order to meet the requirements of industrial applications such as high and low temperature, strong erosion, and long life, metal sealed butterfly valves have been greatly developed. With the application of high temperature resistance, low temperature resistance, strong corrosion resistance, strong erosion resistance, high strength alloy materials in butterfly valves, metal-sealed butterfly valves have been widely used in industrial fields such as high and low temperature, strong erosion, and long life. Butterfly valves with large diameter (9 ~ 750mm), high pressure (42.0MPa), and wide temperature range (-196 ~ 606 ℃) have appeared, thus bringing the butterfly valve technology to a whole new level.

The butterfly valve has a smaller flow resistance when fully opened. When the opening is between about 15 ° ~ 70 °, sensitive flow control can be performed. Therefore, in the field of large-caliber adjustment, butterfly valves are very common.

Due to the wiping action of the butterfly valve butterfly plate, most butterfly valves can be used for media with suspended solid particles. Depending on the strength of the seal, it can also be used for powdery and granular media.

Butterfly valves are suitable for flow regulation. The pressure loss of the butterfly valve in the pipe is relatively large, about three times that of the gate valve. Therefore, when selecting a butterfly valve, the piping system should be fully considered by the pressure loss, and the strength of the butterfly plate to withstand the pressure of the pipeline medium when closing . In addition, the limit of the operating temperature to which the elastic seat material is subjected at high temperatures must also be considered.
