furnace system has gradually increased, the metal seated butterfly valve, which is light in weight, good in sealing performance, small in torque, and more suitable for making large-diameter valves, has gradually replaced gate valves. It is widely used in the field of metallurgy.
The metal hard seal butterfly valve has two driving methods: hydraulic drive and electric drive. In the ironmaking blast furnace, it is mainly installed in the waste heat utilization system, the dry dust removal system and the gas pipe network. It is used under the high temperature conditions of large nominal diameter, low working pressure and opening and closing pressure difference, and temperature of 200-350℃ . Because most of the metallurgical system pipelines are high-temperature gas media, the metal hard seal eccentric butterfly valve has been developed.
The metal hard sealing butterfly valve adopts surface-to-surface contact, and the sealing material is metal, so it is more resistant to high temperatures, even up to 400°C. However, correspondingly, the selection of metal seals has become very important. We must choose old brands and professional brands. Because brand manufacturers pay attention to reputation and their qualifications are relatively sound, we can check whether the metal seal is of high quality when purchasing, which can ensure that it maintains flexibility under high temperature conditions. This is also the possibility to ensure that the metal eccentric butterfly valve will not deform and leak after a period of use.
Now Tanghai also has a triple-eccentric butterfly valve whose sealing pair is a multi-layer composite material, which is a composite of metal and non-metal materials. This further makes up for the slight inferiority of metal sealing performance to fluorine lining, especially the non-metal interlayer in the middle can make the sealing of the sealing pair produce a stepped sealing form. After long-term use, it can still maintain good and reliable high-temperature use effects. The disadvantage is that the valve can maintain good sealing performance while maintaining high temperature and aging resistance. Various systems in metallurgical blast furnaces have been widely used, especially high-temperature systems.
Metal hard seal butterfly valves are suitable for high temperature gas pipeline systems in metallurgy, mining, cement, chemical, power generation and urban heating industries, as opening and closing equipment. In addition, Tanghai’s metal eccentric hard seal butterfly valve has compact structure, few parts, small size, light weight, high temperature resistance, flexible opening and closing, and can achieve zero leakage under long-term working conditions, long service life, and low power required. , The future will also usher in a wider range of applications.

The difference between fluorine-lined butterfly valve and metal butterfly valve

Butterfly valve is one of the most commonly used valves in industrial pipelines. It has a simple structure and is mainly composed of a valve body, a valve stem, a butterfly plate and a sealing ring. It is easy to operate and can be equipped with different driving devices, such as turbine devices, electric devices, and pneumatics. Equipment, etc., to adapt to more working conditions. Compared with other valves of the same caliber, the overall cost of butterfly valves can be reduced by 1.5 to 2 times, which is economical and practical. Therefore, butterfly valves are most suitable for large-diameter valves and are often used in occasions with larger calibers and flow rates.

According to the sealing form of the butterfly valve, we can divide the butterfly valve into two categories: soft sealing butterfly valve and hard sealing butterfly valve. The two butterfly valves with different sealing forms play different roles in the corresponding application pipelines, and it can even be said that there are big differences. Therefore, users should understand the difference between the two types of butterfly valves when choosing butterfly valves, and choose butterfly valve products reasonably and correctly according to their own operating conditions.
Among soft seal butterfly valves and hard seal butterfly valves, our most common and commonly used ones are soft seal fluorine lined butterfly valves and metal seated butterfly valves. The difference between fluorine lined butterfly valves and metal seal butterfly valves is that fluorine lined butterfly valves are generally used for flowing media containing corrosion. In the flexible pipeline, the sealing effect is excellent, and zero leakage can be achieved. However, due to its own material limitation, this type of butterfly valve is only suitable for use in normal temperature and pressure

conditions. The metal-sealed butterfly valve can be used in working conditions with relatively high temperature and pressure, and it also has certain anti-corrosion performance, but its sealing performance is poor. Specifically, the difference between fluorine-lined butterfly valve and metal sealing butterfly valve is as follows:
1. The difference in structure:
Both sides of the metal seal butterfly valve seal pair are made of metal materials. As for the fluorine-lined butterfly valve of soft sealing butterfly valve, the butterfly plate and valve seat are both wrapped with PTFE;
2. The difference in sealing performance:
The sealing material of fluorine-lined butterfly valve is tetrafluoroplastic, which has excellent sealing performance, but it is prone to aging, abrasion and short service life. The sealing performance of the metal sealing butterfly valve is relatively poor, but it is corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant and has a long service life.
3. The difference in applicable working conditions:
The fluorine-lined butterfly valve has strong corrosion resistance and can be used in corrosive media pipelines. It is only suitable for normal temperature and pressure environments. The metal sealing butterfly valve has poor sealing performance and is generally used in high temperature and high pressure environments.
4. The difference in manufacturing process:
In terms of working principle, the difference between fluorine-lined butterfly valve and metal-sealed butterfly valve is not big. The difference in manufacturing process between the two is mainly in the valve seat. The seat material of the fluorine-lined butterfly valve is non-metallic PTFE and metal-sealed butterfly valve. The valve seat is made of metal materials, and the commonly used materials are copper alloy, chromium stainless steel, stellite alloy, nickel-based alloy and so on.

resilient seated butterfly valve vs metal seated butterfly valve

Butterfly valve, also called flap valve, has a wide range of uses. It is generally installed on pipelines that transport various corrosive and non-corrosive fluid media in gas, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, cold and hot air, chemical smelting and other engineering systems for adjustment. And cut off the flow of the medium. There are many types of butterfly valves, and different types of butterfly valves have different uses. Butterfly valves are classified according to the sealing form and can be divided into soft-sealed /resilient seated butterfly valves and hard-sealed /metal seated butterfly valves. Although there is only one word difference between the two types of butterfly valves, they are very different in terms of structural materials and application fields. This article will analyze the difference between a resilient seated butterfly valve and a metal seated butterfly valve.

The main difference between resilient seated butterfly valve and metal seated butterfly valve lies in the sealing surface:

The two sides of the sealing pair of the resilient seated butterfly valve are made of metal materials on one side, and the other side is made of elastic non-metallic materials, generally rubber or tetrafluoroplastics. The combination of this sealing material makes the resilient seated butterfly valve have good sealing performance, but it is not resistant to high temperature, easy to wear, and has a short service life.

Both sides of the sealing pair of the metal seated butterfly valve are made of metal materials. The metal-to-metal seal makes the sealing performance of the metal seated butterfly valve normal, but it is resistant to high temperature, pressure and abrasion, and has a long service life.

The seat of the soft sealing butterfly valve is made of rubber or tetrafluoroplastic. It has excellent sealing performance and can achieve zero leakage, but it has a relatively short service life and is not resistant to high temperatures. It is also not suitable for some highly corrosive media pipelines. The sealing seat of the hard-sealed butterfly valve is made of metal material, and the sealing performance is

relatively poor, but it is wear-resistant and has strong pressure resistance. It is suitable for strong corrosive medium pipelines.

In addition to the difference in the sealing surface, the difference between the resilient seated butterfly valve and the metal seated butterfly valve is as follows:

  1. Resilient seatedbutterfly valves are mostly center-line type. Metal seatedbutterfly valves are mostly single eccentric, double eccentric and triple eccentric.
  2. The Resilient seatedbutterfly valve is suitable for normal temperature environment. metal seatedbutterfly valves are well adapted to low temperature, normal temperature and high temperature environments.
  3. The Resilient seatedbutterfly valve is suitable for low pressure and normal pressure environment. metal seated butterfly valveis not only suitable for low pressure and normal pressure, but also suitable for medium and high pressure working environment.
  4. As mentioned above, the sealing performance of the Resilient seatedbutterfly valve is better than that of the metal seatedbutterfly valve, but now in order to adapt the hard sealing butterfly valve to more working conditions, it has a special process
  5. The Resilient seatedbutterfly valve is suitable for the two-way opening and closing of the ventilation and dust removal pipeline and the adjustment of water treatment, light industry, petroleum, chemical and other industries. metal seatedbutterfly valves are mostly used in heating, gas, gas, oil, acid and alkali environments.

Structural features of metal sealing butterfly valve:
①The unique design of three-way eccentricity enables frictionless transmission between the sealing surfaces and prolongs the service life of the valve.
②The elastic seal is produced by the torque.
③The ingenious wedge-shaped design makes the valve have the function of automatic sealing as the valve closes tighter and tighter, and the sealing surface has compensation and zero leakage.
④Small size, light weight, light operation, easy to install.
⑤Pneumatic and electric devices can be configured according to user requirements to meet the needs of remote control and program control.
⑥The material of replacement parts can be applied to various media, and can be lining anti-corrosion (lining F46, GXPP, PO, etc.).
⑦The sealing ring is made of stainless steel, which has the dual advantages of metal hard seal and elastic seal. It has excellent sealing performance regardless of low temperature and high temperature.
The difference between metal hard seal butterfly valve and rubber seal butterfly valve:
The disadvantage of the rubber seal butterfly valve is that when it is used for throttling, cavitation will occur due to improper use, causing the rubber seat to peel off and damage. For this reason, the metal sealing butterfly valve has been developed internationally. The metal hard sealing butterfly valve is an eccentric metal sealing structure, and the sealing form is metal to metal sealing. The metal sealing ring can be exchanged for metal sealing, and the stainless steel plate and graphite composite plate sealing ring is sealing to metal. .

The high-performance elastic metal sealing butterfly valve adopts a double eccentric and a special oblique cone oval sealing structure. It solves the shortcoming of the traditional eccentric butterfly valve that the sealing surface is still in sliding contact friction at the moment of opening and closing 0°~10°, and the sealing surface of the butterfly plate is separated at the moment of opening, and the effect of closing the contact is sealing, so as to extend the service life and maximize the sealing performance.

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.
