Application of metal seated butterfly valve in metallurgical field

In the initial use of metallurgical blast furnaces, gate valves occupies half of the country. However, as the government has increased its efforts in environmental protection construction, and the pipe diameter of the blast

furnace system has gradually increased, the metal seated butterfly valve, which is light in weight, good in sealing performance, small in torque, and more suitable for making large-diameter valves, has gradually replaced gate valves. It is widely used in the field of metallurgy.
The metal hard seal butterfly valve has two driving methods: hydraulic drive and electric drive. In the ironmaking blast furnace, it is mainly installed in the waste heat utilization system, the dry dust removal system and the gas pipe network. It is used under the high temperature conditions of large nominal diameter, low working pressure and opening and closing pressure difference, and temperature of 200-350℃ . Because most of the metallurgical system pipelines are high-temperature gas media, the metal hard seal eccentric butterfly valve has been developed.
The metal hard sealing butterfly valve adopts surface-to-surface contact, and the sealing material is metal, so it is more resistant to high temperatures, even up to 400°C. However, correspondingly, the selection of metal seals has become very important. We must choose old brands and professional brands. Because brand manufacturers pay attention to reputation and their qualifications are relatively sound, we can check whether the metal seal is of high quality when purchasing, which can ensure that it maintains flexibility under high temperature conditions. This is also the possibility to ensure that the metal eccentric butterfly valve will not deform and leak after a period of use.
Now Tanghai also has a triple-eccentric butterfly valve whose sealing pair is a multi-layer composite material, which is a composite of metal and non-metal materials. This further makes up for the slight inferiority of metal sealing performance to fluorine lining, especially the non-metal interlayer in the middle can make the sealing of the sealing pair produce a stepped sealing form. After long-term use, it can still maintain good and reliable high-temperature use effects. The disadvantage is that the valve can maintain good sealing performance while maintaining high temperature and aging resistance. Various systems in metallurgical blast furnaces have been widely used, especially high-temperature systems.
Metal hard seal butterfly valves are suitable for high temperature gas pipeline systems in metallurgy, mining, cement, chemical, power generation and urban heating industries, as opening and closing equipment. In addition, Tanghai’s metal eccentric hard seal butterfly valve has compact structure, few parts, small size, light weight, high temperature resistance, flexible opening and closing, and can achieve zero leakage under long-term working conditions, long service life, and low power required. , The future will also usher in a wider range of applications.
