Introduction to the Features of Lever Wafer Butterfly Valve

Lever or Handle wafer butterfly valve is a kind of butterfly valve, usually with soft seal, which consists of a sealing surface made of rubber or fluoroplastic as a sealing material and a valve plate and stem made of carbon steel or



stainless steel. Due to the limitation of the sealing surface material, the handle wafer butterfly valve is only suitable for water, gas, oil and other fluid media with a temperature of ≤80~120℃. The application fields include chemical industry, petroleum, electric power, textile, papermaking, construction water supply and drainage, etc. It is used for on-off control of normal temperature and pressure pipeline media on pipelines that transport various corrosive and non-corrosive fluid media in the engineering system, and can also be used for flow adjustment.
Handle wafer butterfly valves are generally only suitable for small-diameter valves, that is, valves with a diameter less than or equal to DN200mm. Because the small-diameter torque is relatively small, the opening and closing of the valve can be directly controlled by hand. The caliber is greater than 200mm, and according to the specific size of the caliber, it needs to be equipped with a turbine head, a pneumatic device or an electric device.
Because the handle wafer butterfly valve is a soft sealing butterfly valve, when the valve is installed and used, the valve must be opened at an angle, which is generally between 5°-10°. Do not allow the sealing surface rubber to be squeezed for a long time. state.
The main features of the handle wafer butterfly valve are:
1. The design structure is simple and unique, small in size, light in weight, and easy to operate.
2. Small-caliber operating torque is small, labor-saving and dexterous, opening and closing quickly.
3. It can be installed at any position of the pipeline, which is very convenient for installation and maintenance.
4. Handle wafer butterfly valves are usually soft-sealed, with reliable sealing performance, and can achieve two-way sealing with zero leakage.
5. The sealing surface material is easy to replace, resistant to aging, weak corrosion, and has a long service life.
