A butterfly valve is a quarter-turn rotary through valve with a simple structure and light weight. It can be used for on/off control, or proportional control flow. The working principle of butterfly valves is to use an actuator to rotate the disc plate to 90°, thus closing the flow path. After rotating 180° in the opposite direction to open it completely, it becomes a full-open type of valve. Due to its unique structure and wide range of designs, butterfly valves are widely applied in many industries such as power supply, chemical industry and water treatment etc., especially for heavy duty equipment and high pressure liquid pipeline projects.
A butterfly valve consists of a valve body, a disc and two cylindrical seats. The disc is the butterfly valve. It has two circular plates arranged in an overlapping manner so that they can rotate around each other through their own axis when the handle is turned. Two seats are the two cylindrical seats. They are fixed on both sides of the valve body by means of bolts or screws, and they form an annular space between them when fully opened or closed; this forms an opening between them through which fluid passes when they are closed, but no passage exists when they are open
The disc rotates around the shaft to open, close or regulate the flow through the passage in the center of the valve body.
A butterfly valve is a type of valve used to control the flow of a fluid through a piping system. In the simplest case, it consists of a disc mounted on a shaft which is rotated by an actuator between two extreme positions: fully open and fully closed. The disc can also be moved to intermediate positions, as required.
In fact, there are many types and designs for butterfly valves that include different components such as:
When the butterfly valve is fully opened, the disc is completely removed from the flow passage so that there is no throttling loss when passing through the valve. The passage is fully open so there is no throttling loss.
A Butterfly Valve is a type of valve that uses a disc to control fluid flow. The disc is moved by a handle directly linked to it and controlled by rotating the handle. The disc seals tightly against the seat when fully seated, preventing any leakage of fluid through it.
When fully closed, this butterfly valve has sealed tightly against its seat to prevent any leakage of fluid through it.
Butterfly valves are widely used in many fields because of their compact structure, light weight and convenient operation.
There are many applications for butterfly valves. One example is the water and wastewater industry where butterfly valves are used to control flow and pressure of fluids. They are also commonly found in gas, oil and petrochemical industries as well as many other industrial processes such as food processing plants or chemical manufacturing facilities. Butterfly valves can be used to control the direction of travel or stop flow completely by closing off one side of a pipe or tube while allowing fluid to pass through on the other side when open.
Butterfly Valves have a compact design which makes them relatively easy to handle when compared with other types of valve types such as ball valves or gates which might require more space but still serve similar purposes as far as stopping flow goes however these two types may not offer any control over direction since they only allow one way while butterfly valves can also allow two way depending on how they’re configured!
