Structure and applicable working conditions of electric butterfly valve

Electric butterfly valve is one of electric valve and electric regulating valve. There are mainly flange type electric butterfly valve and wafer type electric butterfly valve, which are classified according to the connection method of electric butterfly valve. The electric butterfly valve is usually composed of a quarter-stroke electric actuator and a butterfly valve through a mechanical connection, after installation and debugging.

According to the action mode, electric butterfly valves are classified into on-off type and regulating type. The switch type is to directly switch on the power supply to complete the switching action by switching the positive and negative directions. Regulating type uses AC220V power supply as power and receives 4-20mA signal preset by the industrial automation control system to complete the adjustment action. In various industrial automation production pipeline flow, pressure, temperature control, such as electric power, metallurgy, petrochemical, environmental protection, energy management, fire protection systems, etc., there are electric butterfly valves. Below we are going to take a look at the different working conditions applicable to different types of electric butterfly valves:
1. Wafer type electric butterfly valve, suitable for medium temperature ≤80~120℃, such as food, chemical, petroleum, electric power, textile, paper and other water supply and drainage, gas pipelines, used as flow adjustment and interception medium.
2. The soft-sealed electric butterfly valve has very good sealing performance. It can be made as a sanitary valve to achieve the effect of not polluting the medium.
3. The hard-sealed electric butterfly valve is made of hard alloy or stainless steel, which makes the sealing surface high in strength, hardness and wear resistance. Tanghai’s hard-sealed electric butterfly valve can be opened and closed continuously for more than 10,000 times without damage.
4. Flange electric butterfly valve, tightness, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance and wear resistance have been firmly ensured, and it is suitable for high temperature and high pressure working conditions.
5. The rubber-lined electric butterfly valve is suitable for use in fresh water, sea water, salt, weak alkali, weak acid, natural gas, air, steam, oil, food and other media because of its good sealing performance.
6. The ventilation electric butterfly valve is made of the same material as the valve body and processed into a sealing ring. Its applicable temperature depends on the material selection of the valve body. The nominal pressure is ≤ 0.6MPa. It is usually used in industrial, metallurgical, environmental protection and other pipelines for ventilation and adjustment of medium flow.
There are still many uses for electric butterfly valves. For the selection of electric butterfly valves, you can also listen to the manufacturer’s suggestions.
