What is a triple eccentric metal seated butterfly valve

The triple eccentric metal seated butterfly valve is classified from the multi-level metal seated butterfly valve. Named because of the triple eccentricity structure. Its sealing performance is as good as the soft sealing butterfly valve, and it can maintain a good seal even in a high-pressure and high-temperature environment. It is often used for heating, gas, and gas, oil, acid and alkali environments, and appears in industrial pipelines such as petrochemical, food, medicine, textile, paper, electricity, sewage treatment, water supply and drainage, and smelting. A variety of gas, liquid, semi-fluid and micro-particle powder transportation pipelines or containers also play an important role. In more and more sites, it has gradually begun to replace electric gate valves and stop valves. And the installation position of the triple eccentric metal seated butterfly valve can be arbitrary, which is very convenient.

Let’s take a look at its structural characteristics and principle of action:
1. The difference between the triple eccentric metal seated butterfly valve and the ordinary butterfly valve is the triple eccentric design structure. The advantage of this structure is that there is less friction and no wear during the opening and closing process, which greatly extends the service life of the valve. The disc installation center and the rotation center are designed with a strict eccentricity.
2. The valve seat of this product is embedded with O-shaped rubber ring or fluorine plastic as the sealing gasket. This greatly compensates for the lack of tight sealing of the hard seal butterfly valve, while retaining the advantage of strong applicability of the hard seal. When the medium pressure is introduced into the sealing groove, the product seal squeezes the valve seat sealing surface to the butterfly plate under pressure to seal the valve. This unique sealing structure makes the greater the pressure, the stronger the sealing force.
3. The advantage of the triple eccentric metal seated butterfly valve is also reflected in the later maintenance. Once the sealing ring leaks, the valve can be fine-tuned to the required size by the adjusting screw to the direction of the butterfly plate without disassembling the valve, and the sealing performance of the new valve can be regained, which is a very valuable advantage.
4. In addition to the manual type, the product also has three categories and six series of products such as pneumatic and electric, which fully meets the needs of the site.
On the occasion of use, the triple eccentric metal seated butterfly valve is very suitable for working conditions where the temperature is high and leakage is not allowed, and the medium is impure and impurity, such as cement plants and power plants. And the sealing can be improved by surfacing the sealing surface and improving the strength of the valve seat. If the working conditions allow certain leakage, the ventilation butterfly valve is better to use.

How to prevent the motor of electric flange butterfly valve from overloading

The torque and axial force of the valve electric actuator are limited, so usually the valve electric device uses a torque-limiting coupling. Most of the torque type is three-jaw connection or key connection, and the valve electric device does not bear the axial thrust. Most of the thrust type is threaded connection, which can bear larger axial thrust. What determines the execution torque of an electric actuator? It is mainly determined by the specifications of the electric device. The overload operation of the electric flange butterfly valve motor is actually a manifestation of the working torque of the motor being higher than the control torque. The following several situations may cause the motor to run at an overload, which needs our attention.

Double flange butterfly valve (16)

1. When the power supply voltage is low and the required torque cannot be obtained, stop the motor;
2. Wrongly adjust the torque limit mechanism to make it larger than the stopping torque, causing continuous excessive torque and stopping the motor;
3. Using intermittently, the heat accumulation generated exceeds the allowable temperature rise value of the motor;
4. For some reason, the torque limit mechanism circuit breaks down, the torque is too large and the ambient temperature is too high, and the thermal capacity of the motor is relatively reduced, which may cause the motor to overload.
5. The motor model does not match the requirements of the electrical equipment, and the actual output torque does not have enough corresponding margin, which may cause damage to the motor during overload operation.
Generally speaking, there are two ways to protect the motor: one is to judge the increase or decrease of the input current of the motor; the other is to judge the heating of the motor itself. The basic protection method to prevent the motor from overloading is: using a thermostat to protect the motor from continuous operation or jog operation; using a thermal relay to protect the motor from stalling; using a fuse or overcurrent relay for short-circuit accidents. Most electrical equipment manufacturers connect the stroke and torque protection in series. When over-travel or over-torque, the micro switch cuts off the AC contactor coil control power in time, thereby cutting off the main circuit of the motor. Or there is a temperature control switch in the motor. When the valve motor is over-torque or running for a long time, the temperature of the motor rises. When the temperature exceeds the set temperature value, the temperature control switch immediately cuts off the control circuit to protect the motor.
During operation, the rotation direction of the handwheel of the electric device is always the same as the rotation direction of the output shaft, clockwise is to close the valve, and counterclockwise is to open the valve. If the actual rotation direction of the motor does not conform to the regulations, any two phases of the three-phase power supply need to be replaced. Otherwise, the protection measures will be ineffective and the motor will be damaged due to reverse phase.

How to select electric actuator of the electric regulating butterfly valve

The valve electric actuator is an important driving force of the electric regulating butterfly valve, and its selection determines the actual on-site operation of the product. At the same time, the selection of electric actuators has some own selection criteria. Mainly from the operating torque, host structure, output shaft rotation, output speed, etc. to consider, more detailed principles will be shared below:
1. The operating torque is an important parameter for selecting the valve electric device. The output torque of the electric actuator should be 1.2 to 1.5 times the larger operating torque of the valve.

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

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

2. The main structure of the valve electric device is divided into two types: without thrust plate and with thrust plate. The main difference between the two is whether the torque is directly output or converted by the stem nut in the thrust plate.
3. The number of rotations of the output shaft is related to the nominal diameter of the valve, the pitch of the stem, and the number of thread heads. The total number of rotations that the electric device should meet = valve opening height/stem thread head number X valve Rod drive thread pitch.
4. The diameter of the optional valve stem must be allowed to pass by the electric device. That is to say, the inner diameter of the hollow output shaft of the electric device must be larger than the outer diameter of the stem of the rising stem valve. At the same time, in order to ensure that the electric regulating butterfly valve can work normally after assembly, the diameter of the valve stem and the size of the keyway need to be selected appropriately.
5. The output speed needs to be appropriate. If the opening and closing speed of the valve is too fast, water hammer is likely to occur. So choose according to the usage.
The above are the problems that need to be paid attention to in the selection of the electric valve electric actuator of the electric regulating butterfly valve. In terms of packaging and transportation, there are also some points to pay attention to regarding valve electrical equipment. First of all, the packaging of electrical equipment such as valve electric actuators should be protected from rain, moisture, and dust, and the packaging should be firm and reliable. After receiving the goods, they should be installed immediately. If it needs to be placed for a period of time, the storage environment should be kept ventilated and dry, and it should not be stored in the open air. At the same time, it is forbidden to carry out debugging and maintenance on cloudy and rainy days. After the pressure test is completed, re-tighten all the firmware to ensure that the electrical part is tightly sealed to prevent corrosion loss and affect later use.
The valve electric actuator of the electric regulating butterfly valve is an indispensable device for the realization of valve program control, automatic control and remote control. Its movement process is controlled by the stroke, torque or axial thrust. The correct selection of valve electric devices is essential to prevent overload.

Field Application of Electric resilient seated Wafer Butterfly Valve

The electric resilient seated butterfly valve is actually a kind of electric control valve system. It is a high-performance valve upgraded from the ordinary butterfly valve category. It also uses electrical operation during operation. Therefore, the most obvious advantage of the electric resilient seated butterfly valve is that it is quite simple and easy to control.

In today’s society, various electrified operating systems have replaced old equipment, electrification and intelligence are no longer unfamiliar words to us. To keep up with the rapid development of the valve industry, constant humane upgrades are essential. In the past, companies had to set up manpower specifically for valve operation and management, but now the birth of electric resilient seated butterfly valves allows companies to no longer consume this cost. It has unique structure, flexible operation, labor saving and convenient. If the sealing material is matched with stainless steel and nitrile oil-resistant rubber, the service life can be effectively extended.
In terms of composition, the electric resilient seated wafer butterfly valve is composed of wafer butterfly valve and small electric actuator. Its structure is compact, and it is easy to switch by 90°. Its valve body material is usually cast iron, ductile iron, stainless steel, copper alloy, aluminum alloy. Disc materials are usually: ductile iron, stainless steel, corrosion-resistant steel, titanium steel, copper alloy. The valve seat material is usually nitrile nitrile, ethylene propylene, neoprene, Hypolon, polytetrafluoroethylene, natural rubber, etc. The choice of material makes the valve more sealed and reliable, and it is widely used in water supply and drainage systems such as water plants, power plants, steel plants, papermaking, chemical industries, and catering, as adjustment and cut-off use. While saving manpower, it greatly reduces the damage to working conditions and personnel. For example, in some special toxic or polluting working conditions, the electric resilient seated wafer butterfly valve does not require long-term contact by personnel, but only a light switch. , So the humanized management is a great improvement.
The reason why the electric resilient seated wafer butterfly valve can have such a good development in modern times is due to the increase of valve export products, so the market also puts forward higher requirements for valve standards. Valve quality and sales channels have become key competitive factors. Therefore, while competing for channels, manufacturers pay more attention to product technology research and development, quality, packaging, and delivery period will have higher requirements. In the future, the production process and R&D process of electric resilient seated wafer butterfly valve products will be more closely integrated with environmental protection and energy.

How to replace valve packing for triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve

Although we are not focusing on valve packing during the procurement and use of triple eccentric butterfly valves, in fact packing has a great influence on the service life of the valve. If we find that the upper cavity is leaking during the pressure test, it is likely to be caused by the leakage of the packing. Wrong type of packing, packing leakage will cause internal leakage and greatly affect the service life.

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

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

There are many reasons for packing leakage. For example, the packing is the sealing effect of the pressure of the gland in the valve. After operation, the packing will age and become hard, especially the frequently used triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve, the friction between the valve stem and the packing is reduced, and it is easy to leak water and steam. At this time, the valve packing needs to be replaced. In normal times, we also need to regularly replace the valve packing through the investigation. Let’s take a look at how to replace the valve packing.
When replacing the packing for the triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve, for small valves with gland nuts, you can use a wire hook to clean the packing, put the asbestos rope clockwise around the valve stem and re-install the packing surface, and then tighten the gland nut. . Do not use excessive force when installing the nut to prevent tripping or breakage. If it still leaks after replacement, tighten it again until it does not leak. For large valves with flange glands, square or round asbestos ropes braided into strands can be cut into small sections according to the required length and laminated, and the joints of each layer should be staggered by 180°. When tightening the gland, the bolts on both sides should be compressed alternately to prevent the gland from breaking due to uneven force, and the rotation of the valve skewer should be checked to ensure the flexible rotation of the valve stem.
It is important to mention here that many developed countries do not allow the use of asbestos-containing valves. This is because asbestos has slight carcinogens, so triple-eccentric sealing butterfly valves with asbestos plates on the sealing surface are firmly not allowed to be used in drinking water. It can be considered to use full graphite or 314 or tetrafluoroethylene instead.
The triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve is widely applicable and easy to use. It has the advantage that it can be applied to a variety of working conditions by replacing the sealing pair, which is very popular. Need triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve, welcome to consult the brand manufacturer Tanghai Valve, who has rich experience in the production and processing of butterfly valve products, and there are many cases. I believe you will find your favorite products here.

Precautions for the use of triple eccentric metal seated butterfly valve

Triple eccentric hard-sealed butterfly valves are generally metal seated butterfly valves, which have an eccentric metal sealing structure. Sealing forms include metal-to-metal sealing, stainless steel plate and graphite composite plate sealing ring to metal sealing, etc. The driving methods are mainly electric, manual, turbo rod transmission,

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

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

pneumatic and so on. The triple eccentric hard-seal butterfly valve is very popular in the market. It maintains the advantages of the centerline butterfly valve and discards the disadvantage of the poor sealing performance of the metal seal. It is a more promising product in the market. Let’s take a look at the problems we need to pay attention to in use:
1. The triple eccentric hard sealing butterfly valve is a multi-layer soft and hard stacked sealing ring, which is also a very significant feature of the triple eccentric hard sealing butterfly valve. The seat sealing ring is composed of multiple layers of stainless steel sheets on both sides of the soft T-shaped sealing ring. When the valve plate is in the normally open state, the medium will form a positive scouring on its sealing surface, and the soft sealing tape in the metal sheet sandwich will directly affect the sealing performance after being scoured.
2. The valve will be restricted by the structural conditions, so the structure is not suitable for valves with a diameter below DN200, because the overall structure of the valve plate will be too thick and the flow resistance will be large.
3. The principle of the valve’s triple eccentric structure. The sealing between the sealing surface of the valve plate and the valve seat is to press the valve plate against the valve seat by the torque of the transmission device. It is a self-sealing property. That is, when the medium is flowing in the forward direction, the higher the medium pressure, the tighter the sealing and squeezing. However, in general, when the flow channel medium flows back, as the medium pressure increases, the unit positive pressure between the valve plate and the valve seat is less than the medium pressure, the seal will begin to leak.
Is there a solution to the inability to achieve two-way sealing? Butterfly valve manufacturers add an adjustment ring between the pressure plate and the valve seat to achieve a very ideal two-way hard seal. The sealing surface of the valve plate and the valve seat of the triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve is an oblique cone structure, and temperature-resistant and corrosion-resistant alloy materials are surfacing welded on the oblique cone surface of the valve plate. A structure in which the spring fixed between the pressure plate of the adjusting ring and the adjusting bolt of the pressure plate are assembled together. This structure effectively compensates for the tolerance zone between the shaft sleeve and the valve body and the elastic deformation of the valve stem under the medium pressure, and solves the sealing problem of the valve in the two-way interchangeable medium conveying process.
When the medium flows backward, the seal between the valve plate and the valve seat depends on the torque of the driving device to press the valve plate against the valve seat. With the increase of the reverse medium pressure, when the unit positive pressure between the valve plate and the valve seat is less than the medium pressure, the deformation energy stored by the spring of the adjusting ring after being loaded compensates for the tight pressure of the sealing surface of the valve plate and the valve seat Play the role of automatic compensation.
The triple eccentric hard seal butterfly valve adopts a soft T-shaped multi-layer stainless steel sheet on both sides to form a sealing ring. It has the dual advantages of metal hard and soft sealing, and has zero leakage sealing performance regardless of low temperature and high temperature. In the future, it may also replace gate valves and ball valves.

How to extend the service life of stainless steel metal seated butterfly valve

In general, we are most worried about the problem of stainless steel metal seated butterfly valves is rust. This is the common concern of the majority of users for metal products. In fact, stainless steel material itself is not easy to rust, but stainless steel materials are also divided into five categories, such as ferritic stainless steel, martensitic stainless steel, austenitic stainless steel, austenitic-ferritic stainless steel and precipitated carbide stainless steel. The

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

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

austenitic stainless steel has good corrosion resistance after normal heat treatment and will not rust easily. If the stainless steel butterfly valve rusts in normal use, it is mostly due to the precipitation of carbides along the grain boundary in the material to form a chromium-depleted zone, which causes the stainless steel hard-seal butterfly valve to rust.
Let’s take a look at what specific maintenance methods we should maintain during use in order to effectively avoid corrosion of the stainless steel metal seated butterfly valve and prolong its service life:
1. The stainless steel metal seated butterfly valve should be cleaned frequently during use, and the transmission device should be maintained and lubricated. Frequently troubleshoot faults in order to find faults and clear them in time.
2. The packing should be evenly packed and the cover should be tightened to prevent the medium from leaking from the packing for a long time and rust.
3. Pay attention to the connection method and direction of the valve to prevent leakage and erosion caused by misalignment.
4. The stainless steel metal seated butterfly valve is only used for adjustment, not fully open or fully closed, because the structural characteristics of the butterfly valve are not suitable for truncation, which will cause accelerated wear of the sealing surface.
5. Valves that have not been put into use for a long time should also be checked regularly to clean up dirt in time. Both ends of the butterfly valve channel should be closed to prevent long-term air oxidation. The product should be placed in a ventilated and dry place, not stacked or stored in the open air.
6. Eliminate the dirt on the valve parts before installation, carefully check the pressure of the valve mark to see if the diameter meets the requirements for use, and eliminate the defects caused by the transportation process.
7. The product switch must use the equipped hand wheel or electric or pneumatic device. Do not use external tools to cause damage to the valve. The handwheel butterfly valve is turned clockwise to close, otherwise it is open.
For stainless steel metal seated butterfly valves to be used for a long time, it is important from product selection to post-maintenance. Choosing a trustworthy brand is the first step, and maintenance is the continuation of quality. Of course, good manufacturers will also have more guarantees after sales. If users do not understand maintenance or have any questions or questions, they can directly contact the manufacturer for professional assistance. Tanghai Valve solemnly promises to pay two for each failure within two years. Is your trustworthy butterfly valve manufacturer.

Why is austenitic stainless steel magnetic

In the procurement case of austenitic stainless steel butterfly valves or gate valves, we can often find an interesting phenomenon. Customers carry magnets with them to check whether the material of the product is genuine. I think it is really “stainless steel” if it can’t be absorbed, and it’s faked with “stainless iron” if it sucks. This is really an “unjust case”. Today this article will share the unscientific aspects of this method.

high performance-double eccentric-butterlfy valve-wafer-lug-flanged (5)

high performance-double eccentric-butterlfy valve-wafer-lug-flanged (5)

The main reason for the emergence of the magnet inspection method is the recognition of a characteristic of austenitic stainless steel, that is, everyone must know that austenite is non-magnetic or weakly magnetic, while martensite or ferrite is magnetic. . Stainless steel is classified according to its organizational structure at room temperature: 1. Austenite type: such as 304, 321, 316, 310, etc.; 2. Martensite or ferrite type: such as 430, 420, 410, etc.; however, everyone ignores the change in ferrite content caused by the difference in forging and casting processes. This kind of magnetism, which is caused by chemical composition fluctuations or different processing conditions caused by smelting, cannot be regarded as counterfeit or substandard. Let’s see why?
1. During smelting, if composition segregation or improper heat treatment, a small amount of martensite or ferrite structure will appear in austenitic stainless steel. In this way, the austenitic stainless steel gate valve will have weak magnetism.
2. After austenitic stainless steel is cold-worked, the structure will also be transformed into magnetic martensite. The greater the degree of cold-working deformation, the more martensite transformation and the greater the magnetic properties of the steel.

3. When polishing the product, use an iron wrist to polish it. If it is not cleaned or there are iron filings on the surface, it will show magnetism.
However, the magnetism of austenitic stainless steel caused by the above reasons is not at the same level as that of other stainless steels, such as 430 and carbon steel. That is to say, even if austenitic steel shows a certain degree of weak magnetism, it makes the magnet feel When it comes to suction, it is by no means strong magnetism, and the product itself is still qualified. In other words, if the austenitic stainless steel gate valve is weakly magnetic or non-magnetic at all, it should be judged as 304 or 316 austenitic stainless steel. If the magnetism is the same as that of carbon steel and shows strong magnetism, the product material is not austenitic steel but other materials are used indiscriminately.
If manufacturers want to completely eliminate the magnetic properties of austenitic stainless steel caused by the above reasons, they can restore and stabilize the austenitic structure through high-temperature solution treatment, thereby eliminating the magnetic properties. At the same time, select sand with high silicon content during forging and polishing treatment and then pickling passivation to remove magnetism. At the same time, as a user, when we are purchasing, we also recommend to choose products from reputable manufacturers, not to be greedy for cheap prices and avoid being deceived.

Therefore, it is unscientific to use a magnet to detect whether austenitic stainless steel contains magnetism.

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.

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

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

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. If you have the intention to purchase electric butterfly valves, you can contact us at any time. Tanghai will have professionals to give you reasonable suggestions according to your working conditions and assist you in purchasing practical electric butterfly valve products.

What kind of centerline wafer butterfly valve is a high-quality butterfly valve

There are many types of butterfly valves. Today we mainly want to discuss the centerline wafer butterfly valve, which is our more common type of butterfly valve. It has a wide range of applications, and currently there are many

Wafer type butterfly valve with worm gear

manufacturers of soft-seal wafer type butterfly valves. However, the quality and appearance of these butterfly valve products are still very different. How do we judge the quality of butterfly valves when we purchase butterfly valves? What are the characteristics and elements of a good centerline wafer butterfly valve? Tanghai Valve also summarized some of the feedback from many customers on-site and shared it with all users and friends.

1. Many of the centerline wafer butterfly valves are soft-sealed butterfly valves, lined with fluorine or rubber. Therefore, the quality of the material of the sealing pair requires high standards. Such as rubber, high-quality rubber can be long-lasting and elastic to play a good sealing role. However, the low-quality rubber hardened in a short time, and the valve naturally stuck or leaked internally. Therefore, in many cases, the final quality of the product is determined by details that are easily overlooked. For another example, the shaft hole on the valve stem and the valve body must have bushings, and the function of the bushing is to limit the bending deformation of the valve stem under pressure. The sealing ring between the valve stem and the valve stem shaft hole should be designed reasonably to ensure that the medium will not penetrate between the valve stem and the valve stem shaft hole. The bushing and sealing ring on the valve stem should not increase the torque too much.
2. Small torque, long service life, and good adjustment performance are all evaluation criteria.
3. Good airtightness and guaranteed leakage level!

To achieve good quality of the centerline wafer butterfly valve, butterfly valve manufacturers need to strictly control from several aspects. One is from the structure, such as bearings, valve stems, actuator connections, etc. are well-made. The design between the valve seat and the valve body can be more rationalized. Second, the processing technology is brave to innovate on the basis of maturity and adapt to more working conditions. Material selection should be scientifically optimized to ensure that the performance of the material meets the characteristics of the medium. In the selection, professional manufacturers should also provide customers with mature application experience to assist in purchasing. Actively collect feedback from users on product quality and respond to market demand in a timely manner.
The centerline wafer butterfly valve is very popular in the market, but any product has its own weaknesses. The weak point of the centerline pair clip-on butterfly valve is that when it is opened and closed, the unavoidable valve plate and valve wall are scratched and worn, which affects the service life. Therefore, Tanghai Valve is also actively launching a new double eccentric soft sealing butterfly valve. Due to the ingenious design of eccentricity, the valve plate can quickly leave the valve wall when it is opened, the sealing surface is protected, and the service life is longer. Coupled with a soft seal, the sealing performance is better. Tanghai’s double eccentric soft-seal butterfly valve also received very good market response soon after its launch. You are welcome to inquire.
