factors affecting the sealing performance of resilient butterfly valve seat

Rubber butterfly valve is an important part of regulating flow medium, and tight sealing is the most important quality of the product. The sealing performance of rubber butterfly valves is affected by many factors, and the most important influence is still closely related to the sealing surface. Today we will focus on three factors. Let’s take a

Wafer type butterfly valve with worm gear

Wafer type butterfly valve with worm gear

look at the main factors that affect the sealing performance of rubber butterfly valves:

1. Quality of the sealing surface/valve seat
First of all, we must make it clear that the sealing surface refers to the part where the valve seat and the disc are in contact with each other for medium opening and closing control, and only which part of the valve seat and the disc are in contact instead of the entire sealing pair. The quality of the sealing surface is mainly related to the quality of the sealing material. The quality of the sealing material should be produced by the brand manufacturer and qualified in process. In addition, the choice of sealing material should be in line with the medium. For example, rubber butterfly valves cannot be used for highly corrosive media.

2. Width of sealing surface/valve seat
The width of the sealing surface mainly affects the movement resistance of the fluid. The larger the sealing surface, the lower the resistance, and the narrower the resistance is relatively large. Therefore, the increase in the width of the sealing surface can reduce the erosion and wear of the sealing surface by the fluid. At the same time, because the increase in the width of the sealing surface increases the length of the leakage stroke proportionally, the leakage can be reduced proportionally. However, the width of the sealing surface must not be excessively increased, because an increase in the width of the sealing surface, under the same sealing force, the reduction of the specific pressure of the seal will increase the possibility of leakage.

3. The pressure difference between before and after the valve
The specific pressure on the sealing surface is caused by the pressure difference between the front and rear of the valve and the applied sealing force, which refers to the pressure acting on a unit area of ​​the sealing surface. The specific pressure directly affects the sealing performance, reliability and service life of the rubber butterfly valve. When the specific pressure on the sealing surface is small and the surface roughness is low, the leakage increases rapidly. When the specific pressure on the sealing surface is large, the effect of surface roughness on the leakage is significantly reduced.

In addition, the sealing performance of the rubber butterfly valve is related to the sealing surface material of the butterfly valve and its processing state, the nature of the medium, the existence of the sealing oil film, the rigidity and structural characteristics of the closing part, and so on. For more information, please call Tanghai for inquiries, and we will have professionals to answer your questions about butterfly valves.

Excellent environmental protection characteristics of soft sealing gate valve

In many working conditions, gate valves are more used to cut off water bodies such as pure water and tap water. Among them, the soft seal gate valve is an updated product of the ordinary gate valve. Generally speaking, as long as one side between the gate and the valve seat is made of soft material instead of metal, it can be called a soft seal. The

more common one is fluorine or rubber lining. The rubber-lined soft-seal gate valve we mentioned today mainly uses the overall nitrile rubber encapsulation outside the gate, and uses the softness of the rubber to seal the valve to achieve zero leakage in the valve. In addition to the advantages of sealing, the environmental protection characteristics of soft-seal gate valves are also excellent.
The gate plate of the soft-seal gate valve is made of pollution-free rubber material, and the inside and outside of the valve are sprayed with non-toxic epoxy resin electrostatically. This spraying process is advanced and environmentally friendly. It not only makes the appearance of the product smoother and more beautiful, but also does not produce rust water, which can meet the requirements of direct drinking water. Tanghai Valve has invested a huge amount of money to introduce an electrostatic spraying automatic assembly line, which has faster work efficiency. The soft sealing gate valve of Tanghai Valve is also widely used in fluid pipelines such as tap water, sewage, construction, fire fighting, HVAC, metallurgy, energy systems, etc., as a shut-off device. Under the country’s strong environmental protection call, some small factories with unsound qualifications but not enough to shut down have been forced to close under pressure. However, Tanghai Valve has steadily increased its sales due to the green and environmental characteristics of its products.
The soft sealing gate valve produced by Tanghai has extremely low resistance and light switch. At the same time, the “O” type sealing ring is adopted, which is reliable in sealing. The unique design structure enables the “O” type ring to be replaced under pressure, without pressing the packing, and free of maintenance. If you need gate valve products with high environmental performance, you will come to Tanghai Valve. After-sales quality is guaranteed, environmental protection quality is passed.

Factors affect the sealing performance of butterfly valves

For the choice of butterfly valve, sealing is the most important attribute, because it directly affects the effect of butterfly valve throttling and is a direct manifestation of the quality of butterfly valve products. However, for most

working conditions, sealing does not mean that one drop is not allowed to leak. For the sealing performance of the butterfly valve, the accurate judgment standard should be: any sealing is allowed to have a small amount of leakage sometimes, if the leakage is not effective, it can be considered as sealed. The use experience of the valve shows that, in many cases, it is unnecessary to put high requirements on the sealing performance of the valve, because some working conditions completely allow a small amount of leakage of the medium, because this leakage is not enough to affect the use of the valve.
Of course, there are also more demanding working conditions in terms of sealing, usually for high pressure or corrosive media, and pipelines that transport flammable, explosive and toxic media. The leakage of the medium between the valve sealing surfaces may cause personal hazards, economic losses, and even In the event of an accident, etc., the tightness requirements should be reasonably put forward according to the danger level of the medium.
For example, for a hard-sealed butterfly valve, a certain amount of leakage is allowed when the sealing performance test is performed in the closed state in accordance with the technical standards for valve manufacturing. However, in order to ensure the high sealing performance of the hard-sealed butterfly valve, Tanghai Valve still carefully grinds the sealing surface, increasing the specific pressure on the sealing surface within the allowable specific pressure range of the sealing surface material, and improving the rigidity of the structure at the same time. At the same time, Tanghai Valve has stricter requirements on design, manufacturing and processing, such as:
(1) The quality of the valve body and bonnet, especially during forging or casting, should avoid defects and uneven composition such as folding, slag inclusion, pores, organization evacuation, and hidden cracks.
(2) The processing quality of the connecting parts of the valve stem and the valve body is improved, especially the roughness of the valve stem and the stuffing box, the straightness of the valve stem, the verticality of the stuffing box hole of the bonnet, and the processing accuracy are increased.
(3) The structure selection of the valve stuffing box. Since the seal at the valve stem is a dynamic seal, the packing is easy to wear during the rotation or sliding process of the valve stem. It is necessary to select a special low-leakage packing seal and packing seal combination, and strictly control the packing and packing. The gap between the valve stem, the gap between the packing and the stuffing box.
In summary, in addition to meeting the process conditions and standard specifications, the sealing performance of the control butterfly valve should also be fully considered for various operating conditions. In the engineering design, the sealing level of the butterfly valve should be selected to meet the principles of safety, reasonableness and economy.

Flange butterfly valve is more suitable for large and medium diameter pipelines

Commonly used butterfly valves include wafer butterfly valves, flanged butterfly valves and welded butterfly valves. Wafer type butterfly valve uses double-head bolts to connect the valve between two pipe flanges. Flange type

Double flange butterfly valve (16)

butterfly valve has flanges on the valve, and bolts are used to connect the flanges at both ends of the valve to the pipe flanges. The welding butterfly valve, as its name implies, is to weld the butterfly valve directly to the pipeline. The groove of the butt welding butterfly valve corresponds to the groove on the pipeline, and the welding rod is used to weld it. This type of connection is generally used in the case of high pressure media. Because welding is not easy to disassemble, the quality of the butterfly valve is required to be very high, and the price is naturally relatively high. Therefore, when DN50-300, flanged butterfly valve can be used, which is a cost-effective choice.
The flanged butterfly valve has its own flanges on both sides of the valve. Usually the flange and the valve body are cast together, so that the applicability to the pipeline is relatively strong, and it has the advantages of convenient installation and firmness. It is mainly used as a cut-off valve. Can have the function of a regulating valve. At present, flanged butterfly valves are used more and more on large and medium diameter, low pressure pipelines.
The butterfly plate of the flange butterfly valve is installed on the diameter side of the pipeline. The structural principle is very suitable for making large-diameter valves and has good fluid control characteristics. When the flange 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. The larger the diameter, the lower the pressure. Therefore, the pressure drop generated by the flange butterfly valve is very small, so the flange butterfly valve can Actively play a role in large-diameter pipelines.
Flange butterfly valves are not only widely used in general industries such as petroleum, gas, chemical, water treatment, etc., but also used in cooling water systems of thermal power stations. The future market development prospects are bright.

Characteristics of the centerline wafer butterfly valve

The centerline wafer butterfly valve is one of the commonly used butterfly valves. It is named because of the structure of the stem axis, the center of the butterfly plate and the center of the body at the same position. The structure of the centerline butterfly valve is very simple, and the installation and maintenance are also very

convenient. As a component that controls the on-off and flow rate of the pipeline system, the centerline clamp valve is widely used in pipeline systems in the fields of petroleum, chemical industry, hydropower station, municipal construction, water supply and drainage.
The sealing form of the centerline wafer butterfly valve is generally a soft seal, and the sealing material is rubber or polytetrafluoroethylene, so the centerline wafer butterfly valve is usually a soft sealing butterfly valve. Therefore, the advantages of this type of valve are that the seal can be replaced, the sealing performance is excellent and reliable, zero leakage can be achieved, and two-way sealing can be achieved. . However, due to the limitation of its own structural characteristics, the centerline wafer butterfly valve also has some shortcomings. Because the butterfly plate and valve seat of the valve are always in a state of squeezing and scratching, the resistance distance is large, and the wear on the butterfly plate and valve seat is very large, so In order to overcome the phenomenon of squeezing and scratching and ensure the sealing performance of the valve, the valve seat of the centerline butterfly valve adopts elastic materials such as rubber or polytetrafluoroethylene to ensure the sealing performance of the valve. However, materials such as banana and polytetrafluoroethylene are subject to temperature restrictions in use. Therefore, the disadvantage of the centerline butterfly valve is that it is not resistant to high temperatures.
The centerline wafer butterfly valve is not suitable for high temperature and high pressure working environment, has poor wear resistance and short service life. These shortcomings make the scope of application of the valve have certain limitations. In order to overcome this problem, there is now a triple eccentric metal hard seal butterfly valve, which is different from the centerline wafer butterfly valve. The stem axis of the triple eccentric butterfly valve deviates from the center of the butterfly plate and the center of the body at the same time, and the rotation axis of the valve seat and the axis of the valve body channel There is a certain angle. Compared with the centerline butterfly valve, the triple eccentric butterfly valve is more resistant to high temperature, and also has good sealing performance and longer service life.
The valve body and the valve seat are connected components, and the sealing surface layer of the valve seat is welded with temperature-resistant and corrosion-resistant alloy materials. The multi-layer soft laminated sealing ring is fixed on the valve plate. Compared with the traditional butterfly valve, this butterfly valve has high temperature resistance, light operation, no friction when opening and closing, and when closing, the torque of the transmission mechanism increases to compensate for the sealing, which improves the butterfly valve. The advantages of sealing performance and extended service life.

Comparison of pin butterfly valve and pinless butterfly valve

We often hear such statements as pinless butterfly valves and pinless butterfly valves in the purchase of butterfly valves. Because of technological reasons, pinless butterfly valves are usually more expensive than pinned butterfly valves. This makes many customers think whether pinless butterfly valves are more expensive than pinless butterfly valves. Is it better to have a pin butterfly valve? How does a pin butterfly valve compare with a pinless butterfly

valve? This article introduces Tanghai Valve for you.
From the appearance point of view of the pin butterfly valve and the pinless butterfly valve, the most essential difference is whether there is a tapered pin positioning on the valve plate. The connection method that uses a pin to penetrate the valve plate and the valve stem is a pin butterfly valve, and vice versa is a pinless butterfly valve. For pin butterfly valves and pinless butterfly valves, they have their own advantages and disadvantages. The specific situation is as follows:
Appearance comparison-the pinned butterfly valve has obvious pin head protrusions, which is not as smooth and beautiful as a pinless butterfly valve, but in fact it does not have a huge impact on the overall appearance.
Process comparison-the structural processing technology of the pin butterfly valve will be relatively simple, but if it needs to be repaired after long-term use, it will be more troublesome to disassemble the shaft and valve plate. Because the pin usually hit is that the pile pin is hard pressed up with a press, it is not easy to take out the valve stem. The pinless butterfly valve is relatively complicated in structure and technology because of the different ways of

wafer-type-butterfly-valve-with-handle-13

wafer-type-butterfly-valve-with-handle-13

transmitting torque, but the later maintenance and disassembly are more convenient and convenient for repair.
Stability comparison——Because the pin butterfly valve is fixed with pins, the stability is definitely better than the pinless structure. The pinless structure affects the accuracy of the action due to the wear of the mating surface of the axle and the gate after long-term action. Therefore, the quality of pinless butterfly valves produced by manufacturers without mature processing technology and equipment is more worrying. This is also to remind customers and friends that if there is a demand for non-sold butterfly valves, you must choose a manufacturer with sound qualifications and mature production experience like Tanghai Valve. After all, Tanghai Valve has been in the valve manufacturing industry for 24 years, and it will be more professional in terms of quality, craftsmanship and management.
Sealing comparison-Finally, let’s take a look at the comparison of sealing effects. There is a saying that in actual use, the pin butterfly valve may see the medium from the pinned place to between the valve plate and the valve stem. The hidden danger brought by this is that the pin will be corroded and broken after a long time, causing the valve to fail to work, or the ejector rod leakage or the internal leakage of the pipeline. However, many manufacturers have begun to notice this problem. For example, Tanghai will choose to weld a layer of pins on the valve plate and shaft to prevent leakage from the pins.
In summary, compared with pin butterfly valves and pinless butterfly valves, objectively speaking, each design has its own characteristics and advantages, and one cannot simply say which one is better. As long as we choose the product that is most suitable for our cost budget and most suitable for our working conditions, it is a good product that suits us.

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

wafer-type-butterfly-valve-with-handle-13

wafer-type-butterfly-valve-with-handle-13

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.

Medium temperature for butterfly valves of different materials

In the large number of butterfly valve enquiries made by Tanghai Valve every day, “medium temperature” is a frequently mentioned term. Because the different types of media have a great influence on the selection of valve varieties. Whether the medium is an ordinary liquid, a highly corrosive special medium, or a cement-like turbid

Double flange butterfly valve (7)

Double flange butterfly valve (7)

medium, all correspond to different valve types. Whether the medium is high temperature or low temperature also determines which material of the butterfly valve is more suitable and durable. Now let’s take a look at the medium temperature of various butterfly valve materials.
The main material involved here is the body and bonnet material of the butterfly valve. The corresponding medium temperature is as follows:
Cast iron-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 300℃;
Nodular cast iron-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 350℃;
Stainless steel ——The highest temperature of applicable medium is 600℃;
Polytetrafluoroethylene——Maximum operating temperature of applicable medium: -180~150℃;
Rubber —— The highest operating temperature of the applicable medium: natural rubber 60℃; nitrile rubber and neoprene rubber 80℃; fluorine rubber 150℃. When the valve lining is made of rubber or plastic, its temperature resistance shall prevail.
Gray cast iron-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 250℃;
High silicon cast iron-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 120℃;
Carbon steel-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 425℃ (if 16Mn, 30Mn forgings can reach 450℃);
Alloy steel-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 550℃;
Copper alloy-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 200℃;
Titanium-the highest temperature of the applicable medium is 300℃;
In addition, there are relatively special ceramic and glass butterfly valves, which have poor temperature resistance and are generally used below 90°C. The temperature resistance of the enamel valve is limited by the material of the sealing ring, and the maximum medium temperature exceeds 150℃.
Among the above various butterfly valve materials, cast iron butterfly valves, spheroidal ink butterfly valves, stainless steel butterfly valves, PTFE butterfly valves, and rubber butterfly valves are widely used and have better overall performance. They also occupy a large number of daily orders for Tanghai valves. The proportion of products is very popular in the market. Tanghai Valve produces butterfly valve products of various specifications and materials. With 24 years of industry experience, I believe you will definitely choose your favorite high-quality butterfly valve here.

What are the connection methods of gate valves for hydropower stations

Gate valves used in hydropower stations are often in a relatively special working environment, which also puts forward high requirements on the quality of the gate valves. Among them, the connection method it uses is also an important process composition. What we are going to share today is about the connection method of gate valves for hydropower stations.

DIN-F5-BB-NRS-soft seated-wedge gate valve (10)

DIN-F5-BB-NRS-soft seated-wedge gate valve (10)

The most common connection method used in gate valves of hydropower stations is mainly flange connection. This connection method is usually two flange pieces plus a number of fastening bolts and nuts, and the pipes are connected by pressing the middle flange gasket. Why do you think that flange connection is the most suitable method for gate valves in hydropower stations? This is mainly because the flange connection can withstand high-strength tensile, compression, torsion and shear resistance. The flange connection is a detachable joint, which has the advantages of convenient disassembly, high connection strength, and good tightness.
According to the shape of the joint surface, the flange connection can be divided into: smooth type, used for gate valves with low pressure; concave-convex type; tongue and groove type: widely used in corrosive media, with better sealing effect; trapezoidal groove type: Use an oval metal ring as a washer, which is used for gate valves with a working pressure of ≥64 kg/cm², or high-temperature gate valves; lens type: the washer is in the shape of a lens and is made of metal. Used for high-pressure gate valves or high-temperature gate valves with working pressure ≥100 kg/cm²; O-ring type: This is a newer form of flange connection, which is developed with the appearance of various rubber O-rings As a result, it is more reliable than ordinary flat gaskets in terms of sealing effect. In addition to flange connection, there is also threaded connection or ferrule connection, which is a simple connection method that can reliably prevent leakage and so on.
After a brief introduction, do you have your own ideas for the selection of gate valves for hydropower stations? If you need a gate valve for a hydropower station, please first consider Tanghai Valve. The gate valve produced by Tanghai Valve is mainly used in normal temperature and pressure environment, professional and high-quality, and professional technicians will give reasonable suggestions according to your working conditions, so that you can easily choose the right one.
