The triple eccentric butterfly valve is a new type of butterfly valve product. Before the advent of the triple eccentric butterfly valve, the soft sealing butterfly valve and the single eccentric double eccentric metal hard sealing butterfly
valve were the most used in industrial pipelines. These two types of butterfly valves have their own advantages, but also have obvious disadvantages. The advantage of soft sealing butterfly valve is that it has good sealing performance and can achieve zero leakage; the disadvantage is that it is not suitable for high temperature and high pressure environment and is not resistant to wear. The advantage of hard sealing butterfly valve is that it can adapt to high temperature and high pressure working conditions, but the sealing performance is very poor. In order to solve the shortcomings of the two types of butterfly valves and better serve our production work, the triple eccentric butterfly valve came into being and has been widely used.
Advantages of triple eccentric butterfly valve
The triple eccentric butterfly valve also belongs to the metal hard sealing butterfly valve. The technology makes the triple eccentric butterfly valve more resistant to high temperature and high pressure environment and more corrosion resistant than traditional butterfly valve products. At the same time, due to the unique design of the triple eccentricity, the valve is very easy to operate. When opening and closing, the disc and the valve body have no friction. When the valve is closed, the torque of the transmission mechanism increases to provide a compensation seal, which greatly improves the triple eccentricity. The sealing performance of the butterfly valve also prolongs the service life of the butterfly valve. So what do the three eccentricities of the triple eccentricity mean?
1st eccentric: The valve shaft is located behind the valve plate shaft, allowing the seal to have a complete tight encircling contact with the entire valve seat.
The second eccentricity: the centerline of the valve shaft is offset from the centerline of the pipe and valve, which is free from the interference of valve opening and closing.
3rd eccentricity: The valve seat cone shaft is offset from the centerline of the valve shaft, which eliminates friction during closing and opening and achieves a uniform compression seal around the entire valve seat.
Disadvantages of triple eccentric butterfly valve
No matter how perfect things are, there will be more or less defects and imperfections, and the triple eccentric butterfly valve is no exception. Its shortcomings have the following two points:
1. Due to the special process of the triple eccentric butterfly valve, the structure of the butterfly plate will be relatively thick, so if a butterfly valve with a triple eccentric structure is used on a small-diameter pipeline, the resistance of the butterfly plate to the circulating medium in the pipeline will be very large in the open state, and the flow of The resistance is large, so generally speaking, the triple eccentric butterfly valve is not suitable for small diameter pipelines below DN200.
2. In the normally open pipeline, the sealing surface of the valve seat of the triple eccentric butterfly valve and all layers of the sealing ring on the butterfly plate will be washed by the front, which will affect the sealing performance of the valve for a long time.
The above is the introduction of Tanghai valve for the advantages and disadvantages of triple eccentric butterfly valve. If you have purchase requirements for triple eccentric butterfly valves, you are welcome to inquire.
