electric fluorine-lined butterfly valve vs electric metal seated butterfly valve

The difference between electric fluorine-lined butterfly valve and electric hard seal butterfly valve
Electric butterfly valve is one of the most commonly used valves in industrial pipelines in recent years. In addition to ordinary opening and closing, it can also be used to adjust and control the pressure, flow, temperature and other parameters of various water, liquid, gas and other fluids. An important execution unit in the field of automation control, is widely used in chemical, electric power, petroleum, metallurgy, steam, environmental protection, fire-fighting systems and other occasions! In addition, there are many types of electric butterfly valves and various control modes, which can meet the requirements of various working conditions!

Electric fluorine-lined butterfly valves and electric hard-sealed butterfly valves are the two most commonly used types of butterfly valves. The applicable medium and pressure temperature are completely different! But many people’s choice between the two often seems a bit uncertain! In the simplest terms, the two control modes are the same, the difference is the sealed structure. The electric fluorine-lined butterfly valve is suitable for corrosive media, but it can only be used at room temperature and pressure. The electric hard seal butterfly valve can be used for various pressures. temperature range! The detailed differences are as follows:
Electric fluorine-lined butterfly valve Electric hard-sealed butterfly valve
1. From the structure:
The hard sealing butterfly valve refers to that both sides of the sealing pair are made of metal materials or other harder materials. For soft sealing butterfly valves, the two contacting sealing surfaces can be separate or all of soft materials. For example, fluorine-lined butterfly valve means that the butterfly plate and valve seat are both wrapped in PTFE;

D943H-16C-metal seated stainless steel electric triple offset butterfly valve

2. From the sealing performance:
The advantage of soft-sealed fluorine-lined butterfly valve is good sealing performance, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to age, wear, and has a short service life. The hard seal butterfly valve has a long service life, but the sealing performance is relatively worse than that of the soft seal.
3. From the conditions of use:
The soft-sealed fluorine-lined butterfly valve is used in normal temperature and pressure environment, and the hard-sealed butterfly valve can be used in low temperature, normal temperature, high temperature and other environments. Generally, it can be used for higher pressure, but the soft seal is not. However, the fluorine-lined butterfly valve has super corrosion resistance!
4. From the manufacturing point of view:
As for manufacturing, from a principle point of view, there is little difference between the two, mainly the difference in valve seats. The soft-seal fluorine-lined butterfly valve is a non-metallic structure, and the hard-seal butterfly valve is a metal structure. The hardness relationship between metals and the workmanship must be considered. Situation, what medium to go and so on.

The evolution of butterfly valve sealing structure: single eccentric butterfly valve, double eccentric butterfly valve and triple eccentric butterfly valve

Butterfly valves have been widely used due to their low cost, small size, light weight and long life. With the development of my country’s industry, various industries have more and more stringent requirements for the performance of equipment, especially in some gas pipelines or other hazardous material pipelines, the butterfly valve must achieve zero leakage, so the sealing structure design of the butterfly valve has always been important Research topics.

With the rapid development of modern industrial technology, butterfly valves are widely used in pipeline control systems, especially large-diameter pipeline control systems where other control valves are difficult to apply. Generally, the valve seat of the butterfly valve is a fixed type, and its materials are polymer and metal. The polymer valve seat is mainly suitable for working conditions with lower temperature. Although the metal seat butterfly valve can meet the higher temperature and pressure However, the elasticity of the metal valve seat is lower than that of the polymer valve seat, and the sealing performance is poor. The improvement of various performances of butterfly valves is closely related to its continuous improvement. For example, the development of butterfly valve sealing structure technology has successively experienced the evolution process of ordinary butterfly valve, single eccentric butterfly valve, double eccentric butterfly valve and triple eccentric butterfly valve.

Since the rotation center of the butterfly plate (that is, the center of the valve shaft) and the sealing section of the butterfly plate are set eccentrically according to a, the butterfly plate sealing surface gradually separates from the valve seat sealing surface during the opening process of the butterfly valve, and the butterfly plate rotates to 20°~25° , The sealing surface of the butterfly plate is completely separated from the sealing surface of the valve seat. When the valve is fully opened, a gap x is formed between the two sealing surfaces, so that the relative mechanical wear and extrusion between the two sealing surfaces of the butterfly valve is greatly reduced during the opening and closing process. Ensure the sealing of the butterfly valve.

Since the rotation center of the butterfly plate (that is, the center of the valve shaft) and the center line of the valve body are offset by size b on the basis of the single eccentric butterfly valve, the sealing surface of the butterfly plate will be faster than the single eccentric sealing butterfly valve during the opening process of the butterfly valve. When the butterfly plate rotates to 8°~12°, the butterfly plate sealing surface is completely separated from the valve seat sealing. When it is fully opened, a larger gap y is formed between the two sealing surfaces. This type of butterfly valve is designed , Which greatly reduces the mechanical wear and extrusion deformation between the two sealing surfaces, and improves the sealing performance of the butterfly valve.

There are different types of eccentric sealing butterfly valves, and the fields of application and their respective characteristics are naturally different. But fundamentally speaking, the basic principles of eccentric sealing butterfly valves are similar.

Structural characteristics of single eccentric butterfly valve:

single eccentric butterfly valve structure diagram

single eccentric butterfly valve structure diagram

1. The center of rotation of the disc plate (that is, the center of the valve shaft) is located on the center line of the valve body, and an A-size offset is formed on the sealing section of the valve plate. The single eccentric butterfly valve is that the rotation center of the disc plate is on the center line of the valve body, and the valve plate deviates a distance from the sealing surface, which is suitable for soft sealing.
2. When the valve is closed, the valve seat and the sealing surface of the valve plate are in a relatively interference contact state. To achieve the seal, it is mainly by pressing the sealing ring to expand in the peripheral direction to produce the sealing specific pressure and the pipeline pressure against the valve plate. It can only be sealed in one direction because of the strong force.
3. When the valve is opened, the contact side of the valve plate and the valve seat is separated from the valve seat, and the other side is always two-point contact along the axial direction of the half circumference. Repeated opening and closing of the sealing ring is easy to be damaged, which affects the sealing performance. It is impossible to achieve a metal seal.
4. From a geometric point of view, it is obvious that X does not exist in the above figure, and in turn there is a certain amount of interference.
Structural features of double eccentric butterfly valve:

double eccentric butterfly valve structure diagram

double eccentric butterfly valve structure diagram

The center of rotation of the valve plate (that is, the center of the valve shaft) forms an offset of dimension A on the sealing section of the valve plate, and forms an offset of dimension B with the center of the valve body.
Since the center line of the valve seat and the center line of the valve body form a β angle offset on the basis of the double eccentric butterfly valve, the sealing surface of the butterfly plate immediately leaves the sealing surface of the valve seat at the moment of opening during the valve opening process of the butterfly valve. Only at the moment of closing does it contact and compress the seat sealing surface. When fully opened, a gap y is formed between the two sealing surfaces, which is the same as that of the double eccentric sealing butterfly valve. The design of this type of butterfly valve completely eliminates the mechanical wear and abrasion between the two sealing surfaces, making the butterfly valve more effective in its sealing performance and use. The life span has been greatly improved.

Structural features of triple eccentric butterfly valve:

triple eccentric butterfly valve structure diagram

triple eccentric butterfly valve structure diagram

The center of rotation of the valve plate (that is, the center of the valve shaft) forms an offset A on the sealing section of the valve plate, and an offset b from the center of the valve body; the centerline of the valve body sealing surface and the centerline of the valve seat (ie the centerline of the valve body) An angular offset of β is formed.
The uniqueness of the triple eccentric butterfly valve is that the stem shaft on which the butterfly plate is installed is a three-segment shaft structure. This three-segment shaft type valve stem has two shaft sections concentric, and the center line of the central shaft is deviated from the two ends of the axis by a center distance. , The butterfly plate is installed on the intermediate shaft section. Such an eccentric structure makes the butterfly plate a double eccentric shape when in the fully open position, and a single eccentric shape when the butterfly plate rotates to the closed position. Due to the effect of the eccentric shaft, when it is close to closing, the butterfly plate moves a distance into the sealing cone surface of the valve seat, and the butterfly plate matches the sealing surface of the valve seat to achieve reliable sealing performance.

D673H-16C-stainless steel pneumatic triple eccentric butterfly valve

1. Before installation, check that all parts of the pneumatic butterfly valve are not missing, the model is correct, there is no debris in the valve body, and there is no blockage in the solenoid valve and muffler;
2. Put the valve and cylinder in the closed state.
3. Hit the cylinder against the valve (the installation direction is either parallel or perpendicular to the valve body), and then check whether the screw holes are aligned, there will be no too much deviation, if there is a little deviation, just rotate the cylinder body a little. , And then tighten the screws.
4. After installation, debug the pneumatic butterfly valve (the air supply pressure is 0.4~0.6MPa under normal circumstances), and the solenoid valve must be opened and closed manually during the debugging operation (the solenoid valve coil can only be operated manually after the solenoid valve coil is de-energized). Observe the opening and closing of the pneumatic butterfly valve. If the valve is found to be a bit difficult at the beginning of the opening and closing process during the debugging operation, and then it is normal, you need to reduce the stroke of the cylinder (the stroke adjustment screws at both ends of the cylinder should be adjusted inward at the same time, and the valve should be moved to the open position during adjustment. , Then turn off the air source and adjust again) until the valve opens and closes smoothly and closes without leakage. It should also be noted that the adjustable silencer can adjust the opening and closing speed of the valve, but it should not be adjusted too small, otherwise the valve may not operate.
5. Defa should be kept dry before installation, and should not be stored in the open air;
6. Check the pipeline before installing the butterfly valve to ensure that there is no foreign matter such as welding slag in the pipeline;
7. The manual opening and closing resistance of the butterfly valve body is moderate, and the torque of the butterfly valve matches the torque of the selected actuator.
8. The flange specification for butterfly valve connection is correct, and the pipe clamp flange conforms to the

ductile iron, DI, butterfly valve, manufacturer, center line, TH valve

ductile iron, DI, butterfly valve, manufacturer, center line, TH valve

butterfly valve flange standard. It is recommended to use special flanges for butterfly valves instead of flat welding flanges.
9. Confirm that the flange welding is correct. After the butterfly valve is installed, the flange must not be welded to avoid scalding the rubber parts.
10. The installed pipe flange should be centered and centered with the inserted butterfly valve.
11. Install all the flange bolts and tighten them by hand. It will be confirmed that the butterfly valve and the flange have been aligned, and then the butterfly valve will be opened and closed carefully to ensure flexible opening and closing.
12. Fully open the valve. Use a wrench to tighten the bolts in diagonal order. No washers are needed. Do not overtighten the bolts to prevent serious deformation of the valve ring and excessive opening and closing torque.

Structural features of metal sealing butterfly valve:
①The unique design of three-way eccentricity enables frictionless transmission between the sealing surfaces and prolongs the service life of the valve.
②The elastic seal is produced by the torque.
③The ingenious wedge-shaped design makes the valve have the function of automatic sealing as the valve closes tighter and tighter, and the sealing surface has compensation and zero leakage.
④Small size, light weight, light operation, easy to install.
⑤Pneumatic and electric devices can be configured according to user requirements to meet the needs of remote control and program control.
⑥The material of replacement parts can be applied to various media, and can be lining anti-corrosion (lining F46, GXPP, PO, etc.).
⑦The sealing ring is made of stainless steel, which has the dual advantages of metal hard seal and elastic seal. It has excellent sealing performance regardless of low temperature and high temperature.
The difference between metal hard seal butterfly valve and rubber seal butterfly valve:
The disadvantage of the rubber seal butterfly valve is that when it is used for throttling, cavitation will occur due to improper use, causing the rubber seat to peel off and damage. For this reason, the metal sealing butterfly valve has been developed internationally. The metal hard sealing butterfly valve is an eccentric metal sealing structure, and the sealing form is metal to metal sealing. The metal sealing ring can be exchanged for metal sealing, and the stainless steel plate and graphite composite plate sealing ring is sealing to metal. .

The high-performance elastic metal sealing butterfly valve adopts a double eccentric and a special oblique cone oval sealing structure. It solves the shortcoming of the traditional eccentric butterfly valve that the sealing surface is still in sliding contact friction at the moment of opening and closing 0°~10°, and the sealing surface of the butterfly plate is separated at the moment of opening, and the effect of closing the contact is sealing, so as to extend the service life and maximize the sealing performance.

Pneumatic butterfly valve working principle diagram
Pneumatic butterfly valve is a kind of general-purpose valve that is particularly widely used. Nowadays, many chemical industry, paper industry, coal industry, petroleum, medical, etc. will use valves, especially pneumatic valves, and if the use is relatively large, it must be Pneumatic butterfly valves are extremely common on many pneumatic pipelines! Especially in low-pressure large and medium-caliber pipelines, it is used more and more. The larger the diameter, the more economical and economical than other valves.

Pneumatic butterfly valves are so widely used because of their simple structure, easy maintenance, and rapid switching, which can not only improve work efficiency, but also reduce maintenance time. According to customer requirements, seal rings of different materials and parts of different materials can be selected to be suitable for different media and working conditions, so that the pneumatic butterfly valve can achieve great results.
Working principle of pneumatic butterfly valve:
The pneumatic butterfly valve uses compressed air as the power source, and drives the valve stem to control the disc-shaped butterfly plate to rotate around the axis. The initial position of the valve is determined according to actual needs. When the valve rotates 90° from the initial position, an action ends (by opening To off, or from off to on), otherwise, another action (from off to on, or from on to off) ends.
The execution speed of the pneumatic butterfly valve is relatively fast, it is not easy to be damaged due to jamming during the movement process, and does not require the hands of workers. It can not only be used as a cut-off valve, but also can be equipped with a valve positioner to achieve the function of regulating and controlling the pipeline medium. Pneumatic butterfly valve actuators are divided into single-acting and double-acting forms. The double-acting is vent opening and vent closing! Among them, the single-acting actuator has a spring return function, which can be

electric wafer butterfly valve vs electric flange butterfly valve

The difference and selection of electric wafer butterfly valve and electric flange butterfly valve
As one of the most common valves in pipelines, electric butterfly valves are used to realize the on-off and flow control of various media in the pipeline system. They have been widely used in many fields such as petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, and hydropower. application. Then in the commonly used electric butterfly valve, it can be

D673H-16C-stainless steel pneumatic triple eccentric butterfly valve

D673H-16C-stainless steel pneumatic triple eccentric butterfly valve

divided into two kinds, electric wafer butterfly valve and electric flange butterfly valve, and these two kinds of valves have their own characteristics, and they are not the same in performance. They can be used in Different industries.

For these two kinds of valves, in addition to the different structural forms, if they are under the same parameters, the biggest difference is that the connection method is different, that is, the installation form is different, which depends on the site working conditions!

The difference between electric wafer butterfly valve and electric flange butterfly valve:
The thickness of the electric wafer butterfly valve is relatively thin compared to the flanged butterfly valve. There are no flanges at both ends of the valve body, but only a few guide bolt holes. The valve uses a set of bolts/nuts to connect with the flange of the pipe end, which is generally applicable. It is used in places where the space is relatively narrow or the pipeline is restricted. The advantage is that it is more convenient to disassemble, the valve cost is lower, and the space is small, but the disadvantage is that one sealing surface has a problem, and both sealing surfaces have to be disassembled!
Electric flange butterfly valve has flanges at both ends of the valve body, which are connected with pipeline flanges. Compared with wafer butterfly valves, the sealing performance is more reliable. It is generally used in places with larger diameters or higher pressures, but the cost is relatively good.

D943H-16C-metal seated stainless steel electric triple offset butterfly valve

D943H-16C-metal seated stainless steel electric triple offset butterfly valve

Choice between the two:
However, there are still some things to pay attention to in the design. For example, wafer type valve bolts are generally relatively long. Under high temperature conditions, the expansion of the bolts may cause leakage, so it is not suitable for large pipe diameters under high temperature conditions. . Another example is the wafer butterfly valve generally cannot be used in the end of the pipeline and downstream needs to be disassembled, because when the downstream flange is removed, the wafer valve will fall off, in this case, it must be shortened separately. The flange type butterfly valve does not have the above problems, but the cost will be higher.

Advantages and disadvantages of butterfly valve and structure diagram
The butterfly valve opening and closing part is a disc-shaped butterfly plate, which rotates around its own axis in the valve body to achieve opening and closing or adjustment. The butterfly valve is usually less than 900 from fully open to fully closed. The butterfly valve and the butterfly rod themselves are not self-locking. For the positioning of the butterfly plate, a worm gear reducer must be installed on the valve rod. The use of worm gear reducer can not only make the disc plate have self-locking ability, make the disc plate stop at any position, but also improve the operation performance of the valve.

Fluorine-lined butterfly valve vs metal seated butterfly valve

The difference and selection of fluorine-lined butterfly valve and metal seated butterfly valve
As one of the most commonly used valves in process pipelines, butterfly valves are not only simple in structure, easy to operate, and equipped with different driving devices, but also can form a variety of control methods, such as electric butterfly valves, hydraulic butterfly valves, pneumatic butterfly valves, etc.! Moreover, butterfly valves are often used in occasions with large caliber and flow. Compared with other valves of the same caliber, the cost can be reduced by 1.5 to 2 times, which is economical and practical!

Fluorine lined butterfly valve-PTFE-DOUBLE FLANGE (2)

Fluorine lined butterfly valve-PTFE-DOUBLE FLANGE (2)

According to the different sealing forms of butterfly valves, they can be divided into two categories, one is soft seal and the other is metal seated! The two butterfly valves with different sealing forms play different roles in the relatively used pipelines. In a sense, there are still big differences! When choosing, users should have a detailed understanding and awareness of the difference between the two!

Take the most common soft-sealed fluorine-lined butterfly valves and metal hard-sealed butterfly valves, fluorine-lined butterfly valves are generally used for pipelines containing corrosive media, and the sealing effect can reach zero leakage, but it is only suitable for normal temperature and pressure! The hard-sealed butterfly valve is relatively high in temperature and pressure, but the sealing and corrosion resistance are not as good as the soft-sealed butterfly valve!
1. From the structure: The metal seated butterfly valve refers to the metal material or other harder materials on both sides of the sealing pair. For soft sealing butterfly valves, the two contacting sealing surfaces can be separate or all of soft materials. For example, fluorine-lined butterfly valve means that the butterfly plate and valve seat are both wrapped in PTFE;

triple offset butterfly valve-double flange- (5)

2. In terms of sealing performance: The advantage of the soft-sealed fluorine-lined butterfly valve is that it has good sealing performance, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to age, wear, and has a short service life. The metal seated butterfly valve has a long service life, but the sealing performance is relatively worse than that of the soft seal.
3. From the conditions of use: The soft-sealed fluorine-lined butterfly valve is used in normal temperature and pressure environments, while the hard-sealed butterfly valve can be used in low temperature, normal temperature, high temperature and other environments. Generally, it can be used for higher pressure, but the soft seal is not. However, the fluorine-lined butterfly valve has Super corrosion resistance!
4. From the manufacturing aspect: As for the manufacturing, from the principle point of view, the difference between the two is not big, mainly the difference in the valve seat. The soft-sealed fluorine-lined butterfly valve is a non-metallic structure, and the hard-sealed butterfly valve is a metal structure. It is necessary to consider the metal structure. The relationship between the hardness, the working conditions, what medium is used, and so on.

The difference between globe valve and gate valve

The difference between globe valve and gate valve, The difference between gate valve and globe valve

From the structure:
The length of the gate valve is shorter than that of the stop valve, and the height is higher than that of the stop valve. The installation of the rising stem gate valve should pay attention to the height. This should be paid attention to when the installation space is limited. The gate valve can be tightly closed with the sealing surface depending on the medium pressure, so as to achieve the effect of no leakage. When opening and closing, the valve core and the valve seat sealing surface are always in contact and rub against each other, so the sealing surface is easy to wear. When the gate valve is close to closing, the pressure difference between the front and rear of the pipeline is large, which makes the sealing surface wear more serious.

globe valve structure diagram

gate valve structure diagram

gate valve structure diagram

In principle:
The difference between the globe valve and the gate valve in principle is that the globe valve is a rising stem type, and the hand wheel rotates and rises together with the stem. In the gate valve, the hand wheel rotates and the valve stem moves upward. The flow rate is different, the gate valve is required to be fully open or fully closed, but the stop valve is not required. The shut-off valve has specified inlet and outlet directions; the gate valve has no inlet and outlet direction requirements.
Schematic diagram of gate valve Schematic diagram of globe valve
Explanation: The flow part of the gate valve is also the same as the straight pipe, but a gate is set in the pipe. If the gate is lifted up, the door will be fully opened, and the fluid of the stop valve will turn inside the valve. A 180-degree bend, usually the fluid enters from one side of the valve and after entering the valve, the fluid flows upward at a 90-degree angle, and then flows through the upper part of the valve body and then turns a 90-degree flow out, just as the fluid flows inside the valve. A cover is added to the upper outlet, the cover is closed and the door is closed, and the valve is opened when the cover is opened.

From the flow up:
The shut-off valve is low in and high out. From the outside, it is obvious that the pipeline is not on the horizontal line of one phase. The gate valve flow path is on a horizontal line. The stroke of the gate valve is larger than that of the stop valve.

globe cut-off valve working diagram-3D GIF animated presentation

globe cut-off valve working diagram-3D GIF animated presentation-flow direction

Explanation: From the perspective of flow resistance, the flow resistance of the gate valve is small when it is fully opened, and the flow resistance of the load stop valve is large. The flow resistance coefficient of ordinary gate valve is about 0.08~0.12, the opening and closing force is small, and the medium can flow in two directions. The flow resistance of ordinary globe valves is 3-5 times that of gate valves. When opening and closing, it needs to be forced to close to achieve the seal. The valve core of the stop valve does not contact the sealing surface when it is completely closed, so the wear of the sealing surface is very small. The stop valve that needs to add an actuator due to the main flow force should pay attention to the torque control mechanism Adjustment.

From the installation:
1. The flow direction of the gate valve is the same when entering from both sides.
2. There are two ways to install the shut-off valve. One is that the medium can enter from below the valve core. The advantage is that the packing is not stressed when the valve is closed, which can prolong the service life of the packing and can be piped in front of the valve. Under pressure, the packing should be replaced; the disadvantage is that the driving torque of the valve is relatively large, which is about 1 times that of the upper flow, and the axial force on the valve stem is large, and the valve stem is easy to bend. Therefore, this method is generally only suitable for small-diameter stop valves (below DN50). For stop valves above DN200, the medium flows in from above. (The electric shut-off valve generally adopts the way that the medium enters from above.) The shortcoming of the medium entering method from above is just the opposite of that of the downward entering method.

From the sealing surface:
The sealing surface of the globe valve is a small trapezoidal side of the valve core (see the shape of the valve core for details). Once the valve core falls off, it is equivalent to closing the valve (if the pressure difference is large, of course the closing is not tight, but the anti-reverse effect is not bad). The gate valve is sealed by the side of the valve core gate plate, the sealing effect is not as good as the stop valve, and the valve core will not be closed like the stop valve when the valve core falls off.

How many types of gate valves?

Types and classifications method of gate valves
Gate valve, also called slab valve, is mainly composed of valve body, bonnet, gate, valve stem, valve seat and sealing packing. It is one of the most common valve types in isolation valves. The main purpose of the gate valve is to cut off the fluid. For this reason, it is usually called a “cut off” valve or a “blocking” valve. There are many different structural forms of gate valves, and the types of sealing elements used in them are different. According to the

structure of the sealing element, it can be divided into several different types.
Classified by valve stem:
According to the stem type, it can be divided into bright stem gate valve and dark stem gate valve. The valve stem is the operating part of the gate valve, and its function is to transmit the opening and closing force to the opening and closing parts.
1. The trapezoidal thread of the stem of the rising stem gate valve is placed outside the valve body and located on the upper part of the valve stem. By rotating the stem nut, the valve stem drives the gate plate to rise and fall synchronously to realize the opening and closing of the valve, so it is easy to identify the valve. Open and close state to avoid misoperation. Since the stem nut is outside the body cavity, it is conducive to lubrication, and the opening and closing state is intuitive and obvious, so it is widely used. However, in harsh environments, the exposed threads of the valve stem are susceptible to damage and corrosion, even affecting operation. Its disadvantage is that the height of the valve after opening is large, and a stroke is usually added to the original height of the valve, which requires a lot of operating space.
2. Dark stem gate valve is also called rotating stem gate valve (also called dark stem wedge gate valve). The stem nut is placed inside the valve body and is in direct contact with the medium. It is often fixed on the gate. Through the rotation of the valve stem, the valve stem nut drives the gate to move up and down to complete the opening and closing. Usually there is a trapezoidal thread at the bottom end of the valve stem. Through the thread at the bottom end of the valve and the guide groove on the valve disc, the rotary motion is changed into linear motion, that is, the operating torque is turned into operating thrust. Since the trapezoidal thread used for transmission is located inside the valve body, it is easily corroded by the medium and cannot be lubricated. The opening degree cannot be directly observed, and an indicating device is required. However, its valve stem does not move up and down, and requires a small operating space, so it is suitable for occasions with limited locations and dense pipelines.

Classified by structure:
According to the structure type, it can be divided into two types: wedge gate valve and parallel gate valve. That is, a wedge-type gate valve is called a wedge gate valve, and a parallel gate valve is a flat gate valve.
1. The flat gate valve means that the sealing surface is parallel to the vertical centerline, so the sealing surface of the valve body and the gate plate are also parallel to each other. The most common type of this kind of gate valve is the double gate type. In order to make the valve body and the two sealing surfaces of the gate closely contact when closed, a double-sided thrust wedge is often used between the two gates. Most of them are used on low-pressure pipelines such as small pipelines. Parallel gate valves using single gates are also rare but rare.
2. Wedge gate valve means that the sealing surface is at a certain angle to the vertical centerline, that is, the two sealing surfaces are wedge-shaped gate valves. The wedge gate valve has single and double gate plates. The advantage of the double gate type is that the accuracy of the sealing and the angle is lower, the temperature change is not easy to make the gate wedged, and the sealing surface wear can be compensated with gaskets. The disadvantage is that the structure is complex, and it is easy to stick in dry media, and the main reason is that the upper and lower baffles are easy to fall off after years of corrosion.
Classification by other methods:
According to different standards: national standard gate valve, American standard gate valve, German standard gate valve, Japanese standard gate valve
According to the connection method: flanged gate valve, welded gate valve, threaded gate valve (divided into internal thread and external thread)
According to pressure level: high pressure gate valve, low (medium) pressure gate valve According to driving mode: electric gate valve, pneumatic gate valve, manual gate valve
Classified by material: stainless steel gate valve, forged steel gate valve, cast steel gate valve, carbon steel gate valve, cast iron gate valve, copper gate valve (also divided into bronze gate valve, brass gate valve), ceramic gate valve, plastic gate valve
