  • The unique design of three-way eccentricity enables frictionless transmission between the sealing surfaces and prolongs the service life of the valve.
  • The elastic seal is produced by torque.
  • The ingenious wedge-shaped design makes the valve have an automatic sealing function as the valve is closed and tighter, and the sealing surface has compensation and zero leakage.
  • Small size, light weight, light operation, easy to install.
  • Pneumatic and electric devices can be configured according to user requirements to meet the needs of remote control and program control.
  • The material of the replacement parts can be applied to various media, and the lining can be anticorrosive (lining F46, GXPP, PO, etc.)
  • Diversified continuous structure: butt clamp, flange, butt welding.

Used in the gas pipeline in the sulfuric acid industry: the inlet and outlet of the blower in front of the furnace, the inlet and outlet of the relay fan, the electric demisting series and the connecting valve, the inlet and outlet of the S02 main blower, the adjustment of the converter, the inlet and outlet of the preheater, etc. and the use of cut-off gas.
It is used in the sulfur burning, conversion and dry absorption sections of the sulfur-burning sulphuric acid plant. It is the preferred brand of valves for the sulphur-burning sulphuric acid plant. It is regarded by the majority of users as: good sealing performance, light operation, secondary corrosion, high temperature resistance, convenient operation, The flexible, safe and reliable butterfly valve has been widely used.
It is also widely used in: SO2, steam, air, gas, ammonia, CO2, oil, water, brine, lye, seawater, nitric acid, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid in the chemical, petrochemical, smelting, pharmaceutical, food and other industries It is used as a regulating and intercepting device on the pipeline of other medium.

Structural characteristics of butterfly valve

The butterfly plate of the butterfly valve is installed in the diameter direction of the pipeline. In the cylindrical passage of the valve body of the butterfly valve, the disc-shaped butterfly plate rotates around the axis, and the rotation angle is between 0° and 90°. When it is rotated to 90°, the valve is fully opened.

The butterfly valve has a simple structure, small volume and light weight, and is composed of only a few parts. And only need to rotate 90 ° to quickly open and



close, simple operation, and 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 single resistance when the medium flows through the valve body, so the pressure drop generated by the valve is very small, so it has good flow control characteristics. There are two types of butterfly valve: elastic seal and metal seal. Elastic sealing valve, the sealing ring can be embedded on the valve body or attached to the periphery of the butterfly plate.

Valves with metal seals generally have a longer life-time than valves with elastic seals, but it is difficult to achieve complete sealing. Metal seals can adapt to higher operating temperatures, while elastic seals have the disadvantage of being limited by temperature.

If the butterfly valve is required to be used as a flow control, the main thing is to choose the valve size and type correctly. The structure principle of the 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 in cooling water systems of thermal power stations.

Commonly used butterfly valves are wafer-type butterfly valves and flanged butterfly valves. Wafer type butterfly valve is to connect the valve between the two pipeline flanges with double-headed bolts. Flange type butterfly valve is to have a flange on the valve, and use bolts to connect the two ends of the valve to the pipeline flange. There are four types of butterfly valves in Tanghai Valve company, see below:
