    Two Basic Types of Butterfly Valve: Lug & Wafer

    About butterfly valve Butterfly valves have been around for a long time and have been used more and more widely in various industries since the 1930s when they first came out. Butterfly valves are usually made of cast iron and their name is based on the function of their discs. There are several different types of butterfly valves, but there are always two basic types of butterfly valves — lug and wafer. Butterfly valves are classified as “quarter turn” valves. The valve can be opened or closed by rotating the metal disk of the butterfly valve a quarter turn. When the butterfly valve is fully open, the fluid is allowed…

    Types of Valve and Their Pros and Cons

    Gate valve A gate valve is a valve that moves the closing member (gate) in the vertical direction of the channel axis. It is mainly used fully open or fully closed to shut off the medium in the pipeline. In general, gate valves are not available for regulated flow. It can be applied to low-temperature and low pressure or high temperature and high pressure, related to what kind of materials it is made of. However, gate valves are generally not used in pipelines for transporting media such as mud. Advantage 1 The fluid resistance is small; 2 The required torque for opening and closing is small; 3 can be used…

    Different Subtypes of Butterfly Valves

    Over the years, butterfly valves have become increasingly popular due to the thin profile between their flanges. The butterfly valve weighs less than other valves and has a smaller footprint and lower initial cost. A butterfly valve is a flow regulating disc valve in which the obturator rotates about an axis that is at right angles to the direction of flow. In other words, the butterfly valve consists of a disc in which a rod is constructed by an intermediate or additional offset. When opened, the valve flaps 90 degrees in the valve bore, in line with the direction of fluid flow, and the fluid passes smoothly; the butterfly valve…

    Seven tips to help you better maintain your valves

    The valve is a control component in the fluid delivery system. It has functions such as cut-off, regulation, diversion, prevention of backflow, shunting or overflow relief. Valves can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids such as air, water, steam, various corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metals and radioactive media, and are widely used in our daily life as well as various industries. In order to extend the service life of the valve, we need to do a good job in the storage of the valve. Next, Adamant Valves will tell you how to keep the valve. The purpose of good storage of the valve is…
