The sealing characteristics and principle of eccentric butterfly valve

Basic knowledge of eccentric butterfly valve: eccentric butterfly valve, also called offset butterfly valve; Eccentric butterfly valves can be divided into various types, generally single eccentric sealing butterfly valves, double eccentric sealing butterfly valves, and triple eccentric sealing butterfly valves. 
Features of single eccentric sealing butterfly valve:
In order to solve the problem of squeezing between the butterfly plate and the valve seat of the concentric butterfly valve, a single eccentric butterfly valve was produced. Disperse and reduce the excessive squeezing between the upper and lower ends of the butterfly plate and the valve seat. However, because the single eccentric structure does not disappear during the entire opening and closing process of the valve, the scratching phenomenon between the butterfly plate and the valve seat has not disappeared, and the application range is similar to that of the concentric butterfly valve, so it is not used much.

The single eccentric sealing butterfly valve has the following characteristics:
1. It has a sealing structure with reliable performance and long service life.
2. It has a truss structure with small flow resistance, good rigidity and small pressure loss.
3. The valve plate sealing ring is easy to replace and easy to maintain.
4. The valve plate sealing ring adopts a “T”-shaped structure, and the sealing pair is linearly sealed.
5. The bottom end of the valve adopts bimetal thrust washer, which has excellent thrust performance.
6. The valve can be installed vertically or horizontally, with good applicability.
7. This type of valve is recommended to be used in one direction, and it can be used in two directions when the reverse sealing requirements are not strict.
8. When the valve is completely closed, the leakage of the seal test is zero.
9. Replace the valve plate sealing ring, O-ring, valve body, valve plate, shaft and other materials, which can be applied to a variety of media and different temperatures.
Features of double eccentric sealing butterfly valve:
On the basis of the single eccentric butterfly valve, the double eccentric butterfly valve is the most widely used double eccentric butterfly valve. Its structural feature is that the axis of the valve stem deviates from the center of the butterfly plate and the center of the body. The double eccentric effect enables the butterfly plate to be released from the valve seat immediately after the valve is opened, which greatly eliminates unnecessary excessive extrusion and scratching of the butterfly plate and the valve seat, reduces the opening resistance, reduces wear and improves The life of the valve seat is improved. The scraping is greatly reduced, and at the same time, the double eccentric butterfly valve can also use a metal seat, which improves the application of the butterfly valve in the high temperature field. But because its sealing principle is a positional sealing structure, that is, the sealing surface of the butterfly plate and the valve seat is in line contact, and the elastic deformation caused by the butterfly plate squeezing the valve seat produces a sealing effect, so the closed position is very demanding (especially metal Valve seat), low pressure bearing capacity, which is why traditionally people think that butterfly valves are not resistant to high pressure and have large leakage.
The main features of the double eccentric butterfly valve are as follows:

1. Adopting full flow design, not affected by impurity jamming. The conjoined “O”-shaped sealing line at both ends makes the pipeline installation without gaskets and maintains a reliable seal. Different materials can be selected according to different usage requirements.
2. The butterfly plate material adopts streamlined design, which can be used in two directions, with low flow resistance and excellent flow characteristics.
3. The shaft pin adopts the unpinning structure, which can tightly combine the butterfly valve stems without weakening the strength of the shaft and has good interchangeability.
4. The valve body connection can be applied to ANSI125/150, DIN2501 PN10/16, JISB2210 10K, JIS G5527 7.5K standards.
Features of triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve:

1. API specifications
2. Double safety structure
3. No dead zone design
4. Body valve seat structure
5. Thin layer valve seat structure
6. Replaceable seal pair
7. Balanced fixed structure
8. Intrinsic refractory structure
9. High sealing packing structure
The structural feature of the triple eccentric butterfly valve is that while the double eccentric valve stem axis position is eccentric, the conical axis of the butterfly plate sealing surface is skewed to the cylinder axis of the body, that is to say, after the third eccentricity, the butterfly plate seals The cross-section is no longer a true circle, but an ellipse, and the shape of the sealing surface is therefore asymmetrical. One side is inclined to the center line of the body, and the other side is parallel to the center line of the body. The biggest feature of this third eccentricity is that the sealing structure is fundamentally changed. It is no longer a positional seal, but a torsion seal, that is, it does not rely on the elastic deformation of the valve seat, but completely relies on the contact surface pressure of the valve seat to achieve the seal. Therefore, the problem of zero leakage of the metal valve seat is solved in one fell swoop, and because the contact surface pressure is proportional to the medium pressure, the high pressure and high temperature resistance is also solved. Since its inception, the triple eccentric butterfly valve itself has undergone a process of self-improvement and continuous development in order to meet the increasingly severe requirements of working conditions. Even if the highest zero leakage is required, the triple eccentric butterfly valve can theoretically be achieved, but in fact it still relies on careful design and precision manufacturing.

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)

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;

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.

Butterfly valve use principle and installation instructions
The relationship between the opening of the butterfly valve and the flow rate basically changes linearly. If it is used to control flow, its flow characteristics are also closely related to the flow resistance of the piping. For example, two pipelines are installed with the same valve diameter and form, but the pipeline loss coefficient is different, and the flow rate of the valve will also be very different.

If the valve is in a state with a large throttle range, the back of the valve plate is prone to cavitation, which may damage the valve. Generally, it is used outside 15°. When the butterfly valve is in the middle opening degree, the opening shape formed by the valve body and the front end of the butterfly plate is centered on the valve shaft, and the two sides form different states. Therefore, one side of the valve body and the valve plate form a nozzle-like opening, and the other side is similar to a throttle opening. The nozzle side has a much faster flow rate than the throttle side, and negative pressure will be generated under the throttle side valve. The rubber seal may fall off.

The operating torque of the butterfly valve has different values ​​due to the different opening and closing directions of the valve. The horizontal butterfly valve, especially the large-diameter valve, due to the depth of water, the torque produced by the difference between the upper and lower water heads of the valve shaft cannot be ignored. In addition, when an elbow is installed on the inlet side of the valve, a bias flow is formed and the torque will increase. When the valve is in the middle opening, the operating mechanism needs to be self-locking due to the action of the water flow torque.

Butterfly valve structure principle and application analysis

Butterfly valve (also called flap valve) is a kind of regulating valve whose closing part is circular disc or disc, mainly composed of valve body, valve stem, disc and sealing ring. The valve body is cylindrical with short axial length and built-in butterfly plate. The butterfly plate of the butterfly valve is installed in the diameter direction of the pipeline. In the cylindrical passage of the butterfly valve body, the disc-shaped butterfly plate rotates around the axis, and the rotation angle is between 0° and 90°. When the rotation reaches 90°, the valve is fully opened.

Double offset-flanged butterfly valve-D42F-150lbC (1)

The butterfly valve is simple in structure, small in size and light in weight, and consists of only a few parts. Moreover, it can be opened and closed quickly by rotating 90°, and the operation is simple. At the same time, the valve has good fluid control characteristics. When the butterfly valve is in the fully open position, the thickness of the butterfly plate is the only resistance when the medium flows through the valve body, so the pressure drop generated by the valve is small, so it has better flow control characteristics. The butterfly valve has two sealing types: elastic seal and metal seal. Elastic sealing valve, the sealing ring can be inlaid on the valve body or attached to the periphery of the butterfly plate.
Butterfly valves with metal seals generally have a longer life than those with elastic seals, but it is difficult to achieve a complete seal. The metal sealing butterfly valve can adapt to higher working temperature, while the elastic sealing butterfly valve has the defect of being limited by temperature.
If the butterfly valve is required to be used as a flow control, the main thing is to correctly select the size and type of the valve. The structure principle of butterfly valve is especially suitable for making large-diameter valves. Butterfly valves are not only widely used in general industries such as petroleum, gas, chemical, and water treatment, but also used in cooling water systems of thermal power stations.

Structural characteristics & features of flanged butterfly valves

The basic knowledge and structural characteristics of flange butterfly valves:
The flanged butterfly valve has introduced a self-sealing design concept, in which the connection between the disc and the valve shaft adopts a patented pull-out pin structure. The main features of the valve are reliable sealing, bi-directional sealing, and tight connection without loosening, so that the valve can be used for a long time. Its characteristics are as follows:

Double flange butterfly valve (16)

Double flange butterfly valve (16)

Two-way sealing
Generally, traditional butterfly valves cannot be sealed well under the working pressure in the opposite direction (not conducive to the sealing direction) due to their structural reasons. At present, the relevant national standards do not have mandatory regulations for two-way sealing. This is because:
1. Adopting the self-sealing design concept. The disc sealing ring is directly embedded in the disc in a zigzag shape with rubber, and there is no need to use pressure rings or bolts to fix, thus avoiding the uneven force of the sealing ring caused by the traditional bolt pressure plate type seal, which makes the bolts The problem of falling off and premature damage to the sealing ring. Under the action of the working pressure in the opposite direction, the sealing ring generates self-sealing force, which increases the specific pressure of the seal. The sealing ring compresses the valve seat. The greater the working pressure in the opposite direction, the greater the self-sealing force, so that the sealing ring and the valve seat The combination is tight to achieve the effect of two-way sealing.

triple offset butterfly valve-double flange- (4)

2. The disc has good rigidity and is not easy to deform. The disc of butterfly valve above DN300 is a double-plate truss flow-through structure, with small flow resistance and good rigidity. Under the working pressure in the opposite direction, it is not easy to deform, so that the sealing ring will not follow the disc Deformed and separated from the best sealing point of the valve seat, thus ensuring the sealing effect of the sealing ring.
3. Long life of rubber sealing ring
(1) Due to the self-sealing design concept, the small interference between the rubber ring and the stainless steel valve seat only maintains the initial seal, so the specific pressure required for the seal increases with the increase of the system pressure.
(2) In addition, there is a so-called “breathing” groove for rubber elastic retreat in the zigzag groove, so that the rubber has a certain expansion space when it is under pressure, so that it will not produce elastic fatigue during long-term work, so it is sealed The life of the ring is greatly increased compared with the traditional type.
Patent design withdrawal pin structure
Usually in the process of using the butterfly valve, due to the traditional pin connection, the pin passes through the center of the valve shaft, which not only reduces the strength of the valve shaft, but also creates a gap between the valve shaft and the valve shaft during long-term use, which will cause an impact when the valve is opened and closed. Load, this load is much greater than the load generated by the extrusion stress and shear stress under normal conditions. Often the pin is severely deformed or broken during use, which makes the valve closed or fails, and greatly reduces the valve Service life. If the newly produced valve adopts the US patent design withdrawing pin structure to replace the pin connection structure between the shaft and the valve disc, the withdrawal pin does not pass through the center of the valve shaft, not only does not weaken the strength of the shaft, but also connects with the valve shaft. The fitting surface is greatly increased. By tightening the withdrawal pin nut, a pre-tightening force is generated between the withdrawal pin and the valve shaft joint surface, so that the disc valve shaft is tightly combined without gaps, and it will not be used when opening and closing the valve. The impact load is generated, so that the valve flap rotates smoothly, thereby realizing reliable sealing.
Unique design of the bottom axial adjustment and locking device
In butterfly valves above DN300, considering the reliability of the self-weight seal of the butterfly plate, the position of the disc on the valve seat is in the best sealing state through precise adjustment and fixation of the axial position during manufacturing. For the sagging of the valve clack that may be caused during long-term use, it is also convenient to further adjust the lock to achieve zero leakage in long-term use.
Easy to replace the sealing ring
When the sealing ring needs to be replaced, there is no need to remove the disc, just open the valve fully, and then take out the key from the operating device, after the operating device is adjusted to the closed state, it still maintains the key connection with the main valve, and then continues in the opening direction Turn the hand wheel until the sealing ring is on the side of the valve body sealing surface to replace the sealing ring.

Ventilation butterfly valve installation instructions

Ventilation butterfly valve installation | instructions for use
Instructions for use of the ventilation butterfly valve:
The structural design of the ventilation butterfly valve should be combined with the operating conditions of the valve.

ventilation butterfly valve (2)

ventilation butterfly valve (2)

1. Under the smelting conditions with high temperature and high dust content, the design of the ventilation butterfly valve can adopt a flat inclined plate structure. There is a gap between the butterfly plate and the valve body of this structure. The gap value is based on the valve diameter and workmanship. The operating conditions are determined, and generally controlled within 0.5% of the channel area, which can meet the requirements of the ventilation butterfly valve installation, temperature changes in working conditions, and melting process requirements. To
2. Under the condition of high temperature and low dust content, the design of the ventilation butterfly valve can adopt the vertical plate structure. The sealing surface of the structure is easy to process, and the gap value of the sealing surface is controlled within 0.2% of the channel area. The dimensional accuracy of the valve body and butterfly plate sealing pair can meet the design requirements through mechanical processing.
3. For working conditions with high temperature, low pressure and strict sealing requirements, the design of the ventilation butterfly valve adopts a lever-type plane structure. The sealing pair preparation and butterfly plate running track can meet the technological requirements of high sealing performance pipe network equipment.
The main body seal of the ventilation butterfly valve selects different structures according to different working conditions, which is conducive to the production and use of the valve. The shaft end structure design of the ventilating butterfly valve adopts an external support structure with excellent heat insulation and sealing effects, which can realize the function of sealing the second shaft end of the valve and then supporting it, which is convenient for adjustment, and will not cause shaft end jam. When the direct connection or the crank connecting rod mechanism is connected with the transmission mechanism, the installation of the heat insulation sleeve can effectively keep away the influence of the high temperature environment on the transmission device and ensure the normal operation of the valve. The valve body and butterfly plate of the large-diameter ventilating butterfly valve should be cast or welded according to the requirements of the working conditions, and ribs should be configured, and reasonable process plans and materials should be selected to improve the rigidity of the product and prevent product deformation.
Precautions for installation of ventilation butterfly valve:
The installation position of the ventilation butterfly valve in the pipe network and the pipe network layout also affect the use of the valve. The closed funnel is designed at the opening end of the valve or the corner of the valve connection for the pipe with large smoke and dust. Regular dust removal can prevent excessive dust accumulation, which is beneficial The rotation of the butterfly board. There are several issues that should be paid attention to when installing the ventilation butterfly valve.
1. The use of metal gaskets must ensure that the load is uniform, and avoid the additional pressure of the valve due to the influence of temperature and self-weight or the stress caused by welding, and the deformation of the valve flange and pipeline.
2. When the valve is installed in a place with a long pipeline, a support frame should be installed.
3. The valve installation should pay attention to the medium flow direction, so that the opening direction of the butterfly plate is consistent with the pipeline medium flow direction, which is beneficial to the self-cleaning effect of the medium flow rate.
4. Strengthen the protection of the overall insulation layer of the pipe network so that the pipe wall temperature is above the dew point, which can reduce the low-temperature cohesive dust accumulation. If the pipe wall temperature is higher than the acid dew point of the flue gas, the condensation of acid vapor on the heated pipe wall can be avoided, and the generation rate of sulfur trioxide can be controlled, and the valve will be more effective. To
The installation position of the ventilation butterfly valve varies according to the design of the pipeline, such as horizontal, vertical and angled. Generally, vertical pipe installation of the ventilation butterfly valve has a better effect and is not easy to accumulate dust, followed by horizontal pipes, and has the worst effect at angles. The turning points on both sides of the valve inlet and outlet are most likely to form drift and ash blockage, and the valve operating torque will increase.

Selection and application of eccentric butterfly valve
The advantages of eccentric butterfly valves and other butterfly valves are very prominent, so they are widely used in all aspects of life and work to meet various requirements. Moreover, with the continuous development of eccentric sealing butterfly valve technology, the space for its use becomes more and more extensive. TH valve company can produce double eccentric butterfly valve and triple eccentric butterfly valves, with good quality and reasonable prices.

Double eccentric-wafer butterfly valve-D372F-150lbP-stainless steel (1)

Application of double eccentric sealing butterfly valve
The double eccentric sealing butterfly valve adopts an eccentric structure design. The main structure of the valve is composed of valve body, butterfly plate, valve seat, valve stem and transmission mechanism. The valve seat adopts a detachable structure and can be based on the physical and chemical properties of different media. Corresponding corrosion-resistant, light-resistant, and aging-resistant materials are selected, which can be widely used in fluid pipelines such as water supply and drainage, sewage, construction, air conditioning, petroleum, chemical, food, medicine, textile, papermaking, hydropower, shipbuilding, metallurgy, energy systems, etc. Used as a regulating and intercepting device. The double eccentric butterfly valve usually uses tetrafluoroethylene material as its sealing seat, and can also use metal sealing seat to expand its application in the high temperature field. However, the seal of the double eccentric butterfly valve with metal sealing seat is still a positional sealing structure, that is, the sealing surface of the butterfly plate and the seat is in line contact, so it cannot withstand high pressure, and it will inevitably lead to greater leakage when used in a high pressure system. Therefore, double eccentric butterfly valves with metal seal seats should be avoided as far as possible in high-pressure or tight shut-off systems.

Application of triple eccentric sealing butterfly valve
The triple eccentric butterfly valve, as the crystallization of the latest technology of valves, takes advantage of the advantages of various valves and avoids the shortcomings of various valves, and has attracted more and more

attention from users and designers. The maximum pressure level can reach 2500 pounds, the standard caliber can reach 48 inches, and the clamp, lug, flange, ring connection, butt welding, jacket, various structural lengths, etc. can be corresponded, due to the room for material selection Very large, high and low temperature, various acids, alkalis and other corrosive media can also respond freely. Especially in the aspect of large diameter, with its zero leakage advantage, it is constantly replacing the thick gate valve and ball valve in the shut-off valve. Similarly, with its excellent control function, it is also constantly replacing the bulky control valve. Shut-off valve. So far, triple eccentric sealing butterfly valves have been used in various important pipelines including China’s oil and gas exploration, offshore platforms, petroleum refining, petrochemicals, inorganic chemicals, energy power generation and other major industrial fields such as process control. In actual engineering, if the working pressure of the system is not less than 1.0 MPa or in important parts that need to be opened frequently, triple eccentric butterfly valves can be used.

Application of low temperature butterfly valve

Article title: Application of low temperature triple eccentric butterfly valve
With the rapid development of industrial technology, more stringent requirements have been put forward for valves, especially for butterfly valves used in low temperature media. In addition to meeting the performance of general valves, it is more important that butterfly valves seal under low temperature conditions. Reliability, flexibility of action and some other special requirements for cryogenic valves. Now combined with its structural characteristics, a brief introduction to the performance of the cryogenic butterfly valve is given. Remarks: The cryogenic butterfly valve we are talking about here specifically refers to the low temperature triple eccentric butterfly valve.

triple offset valve parts-after-cryogenic process

Requirements for sealing performance of low temperature triple eccentric butterfly valve:
There are two main reasons for the leakage of the low temperature triple eccentric butterfly valve, one is internal leakage; the other is external leakage.
1. Internal leakage of butterfly valve:
The main reason for the internal leakage of the valve is the deformation of the sealing pair in the low temperature state. When the temperature of the medium drops to a phase change of the material, the volume changes, which causes the sealing surface with high grinding accuracy to warp and deform, resulting in poor low-temperature sealing. We conducted a low temperature test on the DN250 valve. The medium was liquid nitrogen (-196 ℃) and the butterfly plate material was 1Cr18Ni9Ti (without low temperature treatment). It was found that the sealing surface warped and deformed up to about

0.12mm, which is the main cause of internal leakage. And if the plane seal of the butterfly valve is changed to a cone seal. The valve seat is an oblique cone ellipse sealing surface, which forms a sealing pair with a round elastic sealing ring embedded on the butterfly plate. The sealing ring can float radially in the butterfly plate groove. When the valve is closed, the elastic sealing ring first contacts the short axis of the elliptical sealing surface. As the valve stem rotates, the sealing ring is gradually pushed inward, forcing the elastic ring to contact the long axis of the oblique cone surface, and finally the elastic sealing ring All contact with the oval sealing surface. Its sealing is achieved by the deformation of the elastic ring. Therefore, when the valve body or butterfly plate is deformed at low temperature, it will be absorbed and compensated by the elastic sealing ring, and leakage and jamming will not occur. When the valve is opened, this elastic deformation disappears immediately, and there is basically no relative friction during the opening and closing process, so the service life is long.
2. Leakage of butterfly valve:
One is that when the valve and the pipeline are connected by flanges, leakage occurs due to the unsynchronized contraction and relaxation of the connecting gasket, connecting bolts, and connecting materials at low temperatures. Therefore, we changed the connection between the valve body and the pipeline from a flange connection to a welded structure to avoid low temperature leakage. The second is leakage at the valve stem and packing. Generally, most valve packing adopts F4 because of its good self-sliding performance, low friction coefficient (friction coefficient for steel f=0.05 ~ 0.1), and unique chemical stability, so it is widely used. However, F4 also has shortcomings. First, the tendency of cold flow is large; second, the linear expansion coefficient is large, and the cold shrinkage at low temperature causes leakage, which causes a large amount of ice at the valve stem, so that the valve fails to open. The low-temperature triple-eccentric butterfly valve developed for this purpose adopts a self-shrinking sealing structure, that is, taking advantage of the large expansion coefficient of F4, and achieves the purpose of sealing at room temperature and low temperature through the reserved gap.
Design requirements for low temperature triple eccentric butterfly valve body and stem bushing:
1. The structure and shape of the cryogenic valve shell. The correct selection of materials is of great significance to the normal and reliable operation of the valve. Compared with the stop valve and gate valve, the structural characteristics of the butterfly valve not only avoid the irregular shape and uneven shell wall thickness, which can cause problems at low temperatures. Due to the small size of the butterfly valve, the shape of the valve body is basically symmetrical, so the heat capacity is small; the pre-cooling consumption is also small; the shape is regular and it is convenient to take measures to keep the valve cold. ,
2. Selection of stem bushing: Some low-temperature triple-eccentric butterfly valves are in operation, the rotating parts of the valve are sticky, and seizure occurs from time to time. The main reason is: unreasonable selection of matching materials, too small pre-cooling clearance, and processing Causes such as low accuracy. In the development of cryogenic valves, a series of measures have been taken to prevent the occurrence of the above phenomena. For the upper and lower bushings of the valve stem, SF-1 type composite bearings with low friction coefficient and self-lubricating properties are selected, which can be suitable for some special needs of cryogenic valves. The metal-sealed butterfly valve has the characteristics that some ordinary valves do not have, especially the small flow resistance, reliable sealing, rapid opening and closing, and long service life. The triple eccentric metal sealing butterfly valve is sealed by the deformation of the elastic ring, so it does not need to rely on the force of the medium, so it can be used for two-way sealing.

electric hard seal butterfly valve vs electric soft seal butterfly valve

The difference between electric hard seal butterfly valve and electric soft seal butterfly valve
With the rapid development of many industrial fields in our country, industrial automation has gradually replaced the manual operating system, especially the use of various automatic control valves. With its unique structural

characteristics, electric butterfly valves have become one of the most used valve types. First, the scope of application is also the most extensive. However, in different working conditions, it is particularly important to choose different electric butterfly valves, not to waste costs, and to save resources. From the valve sealing structure, electric butterfly valves can be divided into two categories: soft seal and hard seal. What is the difference between them? Which one has more advantages? How should we distinguish between them?

The difference between the electric hard-sealed butterfly valve and the electric soft-sealed butterfly valve is mainly reflected in the performance and structure. The two seals can complement each other. Both have advantages and disadvantages. The advantage of one side may be the disadvantage of the other. When choosing, you should analyze your own needs, working conditions, etc., and choose the right product.
The main differences are as follows:
1. From the structure: the electric soft sealing butterfly valve is mostly in the middle line structure, and the sealing material is generally fluorine plastic, rubber, resin, etc., which has good corrosion resistance and sealing. Choose different parts and materials, which can be suitable for use. In a variety of media. Electric hard-sealed butterfly valves are mostly single-eccentric, double-eccentric and triple-eccentric butterfly valves. The seals are mostly stainless steel + cemented carbide. Among them, the three-eccentric butterfly valve has no friction transmission between the sealing surfaces, and has the characteristics of high temperature resistance, wear resistance, and good mechanical properties.

2. Temperature resistance: soft seal is used in normal temperature environment, hard seal can be used in low temperature, normal temperature, high temperature and other environments;
3. In terms of pressure: soft seal low pressure-normal pressure, hard seal can also be used in working conditions such as medium and high pressure;
4. Sealing performance: The soft sealing butterfly valve has better sealing performance and can reach zero leakage. The disadvantage is that it is easy to age, wear, and has a short service life. The hard-sealed butterfly valve can maintain good operation under high pressure and high temperature, is relatively resistant to wear, has good mechanical properties, and has a long service life, but the sealing performance is poor!
When the electric butterfly valve is opened and closed, it not only saves effort, but also has low flow resistance. It is convenient and quick to operate, light in weight, small in size, and has a relatively simple structure. Customers can choose a soft-seal or hard-seal butterfly valve reasonably according to economic conditions, the conditions of the medium used, and the on-site environment.
