Comparison of the characteristics of wafer butterfly valves and flanged butterfly valves

To find out what is the difference between the wafer butterfly valve and the flange butterfly valve, let’s take a look at the comparison of some characteristics of the wafer butterfly valve and the flange butterfly valve.

The biggest difference is of course that the flanged butterfly valve has two more flanges, and the wafer type has two fewer flanges. Of course, the price is cheaper, and the price is about 2/3 of the flange. Flange butterfly valves are more reliable than wafer butterfly valves. Wafer butterfly valves are not as convenient as flanged butterfly valves in installation, because they need to be equipped with flanges, which can easily leak if they are not installed well.

From the perspective of specific working conditions, when selecting imported valves, use wafer-type butterfly valves as much as possible, which are light in weight and easy to replace. However, the length of the bolts of the wafer butterfly valve is longer, and the construction accuracy is higher. If the flanges on both sides are not aligned, the bolts will be subjected to greater pressure and the valve is prone to leakage. Under high temperature conditions, the bolts of the wafer butterfly valve may cause leakage after expansion, so if it is under high temperature conditions, the wafer butterfly valve is not suitable for large pipe diameters. In addition, wafer butterfly valves generally cannot be used at the end of the pipeline and downstream where it needs to be disassembled, because when the downstream flange is disassembled, the wafer valve will fall off. In this case, a short section must be made separately. For disassembly. The wafer butterfly valve has no flanges at both ends of the valve body, only a few guide bolt holes, and the valve is

connected with the flanges at both ends by a set of bolts/nuts. Compared with flanged butterfly valves, it is easier to disassemble. The cost of the valve is lower, but the disadvantage is that one sealing surface has a problem, and both sealing surfaces have to be disassembled. Regarding the blue butterfly valve, the above problem does not exist, and of course it has to pay a higher cost. But the cost will be higher.

The flange type butterfly valve has flanges at both ends of the valve body, which are connected with pipe flanges. The seal is relatively more reliable.
In addition to selecting the appropriate wafer butterfly valve or flange butterfly valve, attention should also be paid to the installation and maintenance of the butterfly valve. Because this is actually a place that can affect the selection of the valve outside of the specific purpose. Let’s take a look at the specific requirements below:
1. The valve disc stops at the closed position during installation.
2. Determine the opening position according to the rotation angle of the butterfly plate.
3. For the butterfly valve with bypass valve, the bypass valve should be opened before opening.
4. Ask professionals to install according to the manufacturer’s instructions, especially the heavy butterfly valve should be fixed.
5. 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 rotated to 90°, the butterfly valve is fully open.
The butterfly valve is used as a flow control, the main thing is to choose the size and type of the valve when purchasing. 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.

The correct operation method of manual valve

The manual valve is operated by the operator with the help of a handle or a hand wheel to manipulate the opening and closing of the valve by manpower. When the valve opening and closing torque is large, a turbine device needs to be installed between the handle or hand wheel and the valve stem, which is more labor-saving. . Normally, the switching direction of a manual valve is to pull the handle or handwheel of the valve, turn it clockwise in the thorium direction to close, and turn it counterclockwise to open the valve. However, under special circumstances, the opening and closing direction of the manual valve may be reversed. This requires operators, especially those experienced

operators, to not directly operate the valve based on experience, and check the valve before operation. Open and close signs to avoid losses caused by improper operation. The correct operation method of manual valve is as follows:
1. The operation of manual valve requires the person who manipulates the valve to hold the handle or hand wheel to operate. It is not possible to switch the valve with levers and long wrenches to avoid damage to the handle or hand wheel due to excessive force, let alone violent operation to avoid accidents. happen.
Under normal circumstances, the length of the handle or the diameter of the handwheel is less than 320mm, and only one person is allowed to operate; when the diameter of the handwheel is equal to or greater than 320mm, two people are allowed to complete the operation together, or a single person can appropriately use tools, levers or wrenches. Operate, but pay attention to the lever length not to exceed 0.5m.

2. Both manual gate valve and manual stop valve are operated with the help of handwheels. After the valve is fully opened or closed, it must be rotated 1/4 to 1/2 circle to make the threads tightly fit better and avoid the valve at the same time. Overtightening may cause damage.
3. To operate the manual steam valve, preheat the pipe before opening it to discharge the condensed water in the pipe; open the valve slowly to prevent the occurrence of water hammer and cause damage to the valve and pipeline equipment.
4. The sealing surface of the normally open manual valve is easy to stick to impurities and dirt. Before closing and closing, slightly open a slit to allow the high-speed flowing medium to wash away these foreign objects, and then gently close it to improve the sealing effect .
5. In some pipelines with over-temperature medium, when the manual valve is closed, the temperature in the valve body drops, because the thermal expansion and contraction cause the valve to shrink, and there will be some small gaps in the sealing surface, and the valve will leak. In this case, after closing the manual valve, close it again after a while.

The correctness of manual valve operation affects the service life of the valve and even production safety, so it is necessary to master the correct valve operation method. Safe production, start with small things.

What are the commonly used valves

The valve is a pipeline accessory, used to open and close the pipeline and control the flow of fluid medium in the pipeline. The functions of the valve in the pipeline include cut-off, regulation, diversion, prevention of reverse flow, stabilization, diversion or overflow and pressure relief. There are many types of valves. As the control components of fluid control systems, from the simplest butterfly valves and gate valves to the various valves used in extremely complex automatic control systems, there are many varieties and specifications.

Valves can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids, such as air, water, steam, various corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metal, and radioactive media. The application range covers various industries. Although there are many types of valves, what are the commonly used valves? This article introduces you one by one:

There are five types of commonly used valves: butterfly valves, gate valves, check valves, ball valves, and stop valves.

Butterfly valve:
The butterfly valve, also known as the flap valve, is a simple and easy-to-use regulating valve. The butterfly plate in the body of the butterfly valve is the closing part of the valve, which is in the shape of a disc. The working principle is that the butterfly plate rotates around the valve shaft to realize the valve. Open and close, usually, the butterfly plate is driven by the valve stem and rotates 90° to complete one opening and closing, and achieve the purpose of interception. If you change the deflection angle of the butterfly plate, it can also be used as a flow control. Under normal circumstances, butterfly valves are often used for on-off control of low-pressure pipeline media.
Wafer butterfly valve and flange butterfly valve are the two connection forms of butterfly valve. The butterfly valve is suitable for making large-diameter valves, suitable for natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, city gas, cold and hot air, chemical smelting and power generation, environmental protection, building water supply and drainage, etc. It is used to regulate and cut off the flow of media on the pipelines that transport various corrosive and non-corrosive fluid media in the system.

gate valve:

Gate valves are usually used for interception in pipeline systems. Its opening and closing parts are gates. The movement direction of the gate is perpendicular to the direction of the medium flow in the pipeline. The gate rises and the valve opens to realize the flow of the pipeline medium; the gate falls, The valve is closed, and the flow of the pipeline medium is cut off. The gate valve can only be fully opened or fully closed to cut off the flow of the medium, and cannot be used for adjustment and throttling. Therefore, the gate valve is generally used to keep the gate valve gate plate fully open and fully closed, and is used in a pipeline environment that does not need to be opened and closed frequently.
According to the structure of the gate, the gate valve can be divided into two types: wedge gate valve and parallel gate valve. Wedge gate valves can be divided into three types: single gate valve, double gate valve and elastic gate valve.

Check valve:
The check valve is also a list valve or check valve, which is an automatic valve, which

double-wing-check-valve-3

double-wing-check-valve-3

means that the check valve works automatically and does not require manual operation. When the medium flows through the check valve, under the pressure impact of the fluid medium, the check valve The valve flap of the return valve opens automatically and the medium passes through; after the medium flow is cut off, the valve flap automatically closes under the force of its own spring device to prevent the medium from flowing back and backflow.
Check valves are only suitable for installation in pipelines where the medium flows in one direction. The main function is to prevent the medium from flowing backwards, to prevent the pump and drive motor from reversing, and to discharge the container medium.

Globe valve:
The globe valve, also known as the shut-off valve, is a forced-sealing valve. That is to say, unlike the automatic operation of a check valve, the shut-off valve must apply pressure to the disc when it is closed to force the sealing

surface to not leak. When the medium enters the valve from below the disc, the flow direction changes, so the resistance that needs to be overcome to close the shut-off valve is the friction between the valve stem and the packing, as well as the thrust generated by the pressure of the medium, and the force to close the valve. The force is larger than that of opening the valve, so the diameter of the valve stem should be larger, otherwise the valve stem will bend failure. The flow resistance of the stop valve is higher than other valves.
The shut-off valve can be used to cut off the medium like a gate valve, but more often, people use the shut-off valve to adjust the flow.

Ball valve:
The ball valve evolved from the rotary valve. It is the same as the butterfly valve in that it also needs to be rotated 90 degrees to open and close. The difference is that the butterfly

valve is a butterfly plate, and the cock of the ball valve is a sphere, with a circular through hole or channel passing through its axis.
The ball valve can cut off, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium in the pipeline, and only need to rotate 90 degrees and a small torque can be closed tightly. Therefore, the ball valve is most suitable for use as a switch and shut-off valve. At present, it has been widely used in petroleum refining, long-distance pipeline, chemical industry, papermaking and other industries.

Ways to Extend the Service Life of Valves

In industrial production, we always want to reduce costs, increase production capacity, and maximize profits. In addition to vigorously developing scientific and technological productivity, in daily work, paying attention to some small details, avoiding waste, can also reduce costs. Valves are disposable items and have their own service life. Once this period has passed, they must be replaced with new ones. Frequent replacement of valves will increase our production costs. Therefore, extending the service life of the valve can also maximize our production benefits. This article will start with the selection of the valve and tell us how to maximize the service life of the valve during the process of valve maintenance.

Valve selection
Getting the best performance level of the valve is the first step in ensuring the life of the valve, so we have to make sure that the right valve is selected and used in the right place. In many cases, the main reason for valve leakage and failure is the wrong valve design or the wrong material of construction. Therefore, when selecting a valve, you must be clear about the parameters of the pipelined medium, use temperature, pressure, etc., and select the correct and appropriate valve according to the parameters.

Valve installation
After purchasing a suitable valve, pay special attention to the installation. On-site technicians may cause further damage to the valve when removing the valve end cover. When the end cover is removed, dust and foreign matter will be deposited in the valve, which may cause Damage to the ball and valve seat, and cause leakage once installed. So do not open the end cap without special reason.
Incorrect hoisting of pneumatic valves or electric valves will damage the actuators and valves. When transporting the valve on site, there is a lifting ring on the valve. Do not lift the valve or actuator through the valve stem. Therefore, during the installation phase, the most important step is to purge the pipeline before it is pressurized.

Valve maintenance
After the valve is installed, frequent maintenance is required to prevent the valve and drive equipment from malfunctioning. Every month, the valve in operation should be moisturized to optimize the performance of the valve.

Finally, there are some caveats:
1. Make sure that the start of the valve and the material list of valve control accessories conform to our specification sheet.
2. The valve packaging must be inspected to ensure that the exterior of the valve and components are intact during the transportation process, and all grease fittings are present.
3. Ensure that the valve process connection is covered to prevent dust and debris from entering the body cavity.
4. Pay attention to the valve manufacturer’s instructions for lifting and transporting the valve.

How to choose a valve in the chemical industry

The media transported in various pipelines in the chemical industry are usually corrosive, such as sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, nitric acid and other corrosive media. All corrosion protection is the most basic requirement of chemical equipment. Chemical valves are of course no exception, and the selection of valve materials must be corrosion-resistant. If the chemical valve is wrongly selected, it will damage the equipment at the slightest level, or cause serious accidents, causing injury to machinery, equipment and even people. However, for different corrosive media, the selection of valves is also different. This article will talk about the key points of valve material selection for some common chemical media:

lug type butterfly valve, ductile iron, center lined,

lug type butterfly valve, ductile iron, center lined,

Hydrochloric acid: Most metal materials, including various stainless steel materials, are not resistant to hydrochloric acid corrosion, and high-silicon ferro-molybdenum can only be used in hydrochloric acid below 50°C and 30%. Contrary to metal materials, most non-metal materials have good corrosion resistance to hydrochloric acid, so rubber-lined valves (such as fluoroplastics, etc.) are the best choice for transporting hydrochloric acid. But if the temperature of the medium exceeds 150°C, or the pressure is greater than 16 kg, any plastics (including fluoroplastics and even polytetrafluoroethylene) will be difficult to handle. For hydrochloric acid exceeding this condition, there is no ideal valve currently on the market.

Sulfuric acid: As one of the strong corrosive media, sulfuric acid is an important industrial raw material with a wide range of uses. Different concentrations and temperatures of sulfuric acid have great differences in the corrosion of materials. For concentrated sulfuric acid with a concentration of more than 80% and a temperature of less than 80°C, carbon steel and cast iron have good corrosion resistance, but it is not suitable for high-speed flowing sulfuric acid. Not suitable for use as a valve material; ordinary stainless steels such as 304 and 316 have limited use for sulfuric acid media. Therefore, pump valves for transporting sulfuric acid are usually made of high-silicon cast iron (difficult to cast and process) and high-alloy stainless steel (20 alloy valve). Fluoroplastics have better resistance to sulfuric acid, and fluorine-lined valves (recommended by Tanghai Valves) are a more economical choice. If the pressure is too high and the temperature rises, the point of use of the plastic valve will be impacted, and you can only choose the more expensive ceramic ball valve.

Nitric acid: Most metals are rapidly corroded and destroyed in nitric acid. Stainless steel is the most widely used nitric acid resistant material. It has good corrosion resistance to all concentrations of nitric acid at room temperature. Note that stainless steel containing molybdenum (such as 316, The corrosion resistance of 316L) to nitric acid is not better than that of ordinary stainless steel (such as 304, 321), and sometimes even worse.

Acetic acid: Acetic acid is one of the most corrosive substances in organic acids. Ordinary steel will be severely corroded in acetic acid at all concentrations and temperatures. Stainless steel is an excellent acetic acid resistant material. 316 stainless steel containing molybdenum is also suitable for high temperature and rarefied materials. Acetic acid vapor. For demanding requirements such as high temperature and high concentration of acetic acid or other corrosive media, high alloy stainless steel or fluoroplastic pumps can be used.

Salt water/sea water: The corrosion rate of ordinary steel in sodium chloride solution, sea water and salt water is not very high, and generally must be protected by paint; all kinds of stainless steel also have a very low uniform corrosion rate, but may cause local corrosion due to chloride ions. It is usually better to use 316 stainless steel.

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

1. Before installation, check that all parts of the pneumatic butterfly valve are not missing, the model is correct, there is no debris in the valve body, and there is no blockage in the solenoid valve and muffler;
2. Put the valve and cylinder in the closed state.
3. Hit the cylinder against the valve (the installation direction is either parallel or perpendicular to the valve body), and then check whether the screw holes are aligned, there will be no too much deviation, if there is a little deviation, just rotate the cylinder body a little. , And then tighten the screws.
4. After installation, debug the pneumatic butterfly valve (the air supply pressure is 0.4~0.6MPa under normal circumstances), and the solenoid valve must be opened and closed manually during the debugging operation (the solenoid valve coil can only be operated manually after the solenoid valve coil is de-energized). Observe the opening and closing of the pneumatic butterfly valve. If the valve is found to be a bit difficult at the beginning of the opening and closing process during the debugging operation, and then it is normal, you need to reduce the stroke of the cylinder (the stroke adjustment screws at both ends of the cylinder should be adjusted inward at the same time, and the valve should be moved to the open position during adjustment. , Then turn off the air source and adjust again) until the valve opens and closes smoothly and closes without leakage. It should also be noted that the adjustable silencer can adjust the opening and closing speed of the valve, but it should not be adjusted too small, otherwise the valve may not operate.
5. Defa should be kept dry before installation, and should not be stored in the open air;
6. Check the pipeline before installing the butterfly valve to ensure that there is no foreign matter such as welding slag in the pipeline;
7. The manual opening and closing resistance of the butterfly valve body is moderate, and the torque of the butterfly valve matches the torque of the selected actuator.
8. The flange specification for butterfly valve connection is correct, and the pipe clamp flange conforms to the

ductile iron, DI, butterfly valve, manufacturer, center line, TH valve

ductile iron, DI, butterfly valve, manufacturer, center line, TH valve

butterfly valve flange standard. It is recommended to use special flanges for butterfly valves instead of flat welding flanges.
9. Confirm that the flange welding is correct. After the butterfly valve is installed, the flange must not be welded to avoid scalding the rubber parts.
10. The installed pipe flange should be centered and centered with the inserted butterfly valve.
11. Install all the flange bolts and tighten them by hand. It will be confirmed that the butterfly valve and the flange have been aligned, and then the butterfly valve will be opened and closed carefully to ensure flexible opening and closing.
12. Fully open the valve. Use a wrench to tighten the bolts in diagonal order. No washers are needed. Do not overtighten the bolts to prevent serious deformation of the valve ring and excessive opening and closing torque.

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.

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.

The role and use of the ball valve

The function of the ball valve:
The opening and closing part of the ball valve is a round sphere with a hole. The ball core rotates around the axis of the valve stem by 0-90° back and forth to achieve the purpose of opening or closing the valve. Ball valves have many functions. They are generally used to switch off or adjust the medium in the pipeline. Among them, the three-way ball valve can flexibly cut off, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium. The sealing surface of the ball valve is usually closed with the spherical surface, so it is not easy to be eroded by the medium. It is easy to operate and has a simple and compact structure. It can be used in working conditions such as water, natural gas, acid, and solvent.

The application of the ball valve:
Ball valves can generally be divided into three categories: floating ball valves, fixed ball valves, and elastic ball valves according to their structure. According to the different sealing performance, it is divided into hard-sealed ball valves and soft-sealed ball valves. The soft-sealed ball valves have better sealing performance and can achieve zero leakage. They are generally used in normal temperature and pressure pipelines with corrosive media, while hard-sealed ball valves are not only It can be used in normal temperature and pressure, as well as pipelines with low temperature and low pressure and high temperature and high pressure.
(1) Floating ball valve
The ball of the floating ball valve is floating and is supported by two valve seats. Under the action of the medium pressure, the ball can produce a certain displacement and tightly adhere to the sealing surface of the valve seat at the outlet end to ensure that the outlet end is sealed. However, if the sphere bears the load of the working medium and is all transmitted to the outlet sealing ring, the sphere may deviate when it is impacted by a higher pressure. Therefore, the ball valve of this structure is generally suitable for normal pressure or low pressure working conditions.
(2) Fixed ball valve

The name of the fixed ball valve is that the ball is fixed, and when the valve is closed, the ball valve will not move even if it is pressurized. Fixed ball valves are equipped with a floating seat. After being pressured by the medium, the seat will move so that the sealing ring is pressed tightly on the sphere to ensure sealing. Generally, sliding bearings or rolling bearings are installed on the upper and lower shafts of the ball, which can be operated with a small torque and a small torque, and is generally suitable for high-pressure and large-diameter pipelines.
Other common classifications of ball valves, chip ball valves, orbital ball valves, V-shaped ball valves, O-shaped ball valves, cut-off ball valves, three-way ball valves, four-way ball valves, forged steel ball valves, ash unloading ball valves, anti-sulfur ball valves, eccentric ball valves, thermal insulation ball valves, pneumatic Ball valves, electric ball valves, ferrule ball valves, welded ball valves. Among them, the V-shaped ball valve has a shearing effect, which is especially suitable for media containing fibers, small solid particles, slurry and other media. The three-way ball valve can also be divided into T-type and L-type. The T-shape can make the three intersecting pipelines connect to each other or cut off any one of the channels, playing the role of splitting and merging. The L-shape only connects two perpendicular pipes, and cannot connect to the third pipe at the same time, and it mainly plays a role of distribution.
