What is a wafer-type butterfly valve?
A wafer-type butterfly valve is a flow control device used in piping systems to regulate the amount of fluid that passes through. It consists of two semi-circular plates hinged together at a pivot point and connected by a stem, with an opening between them when closed and allowing unrestricted flow when open.
The basic operation principle is fairly simple: When the disc or plate within the valve is rotated 90 degrees, it aligns with the pipeline and allows for full fluid flow; when it’s perpendicular to the line, it restricts or completely blocks off the passage of liquids or gases. As such, this type of valve can both stop and start liquid/gas flows as well as throttle back their speed. This makes them especially useful for applications involving frequent starts/stops or throttling down pressures (such as pumps).
Wafer-type butterfly valves are available in different sizes depending on their intended application: from small 1/2-inch valves up to large 8-foot ones (or even larger). Additionally, they can be made from diverse materials such as cast iron, steel alloys, plastic composites etc., which further increases its range of use cases – from handling corrosive chemicals inside industrial plants to controlling steam pressure within boilers.
In conclusion – Wafer Butterfly Valves offer easy installation due to its compact size & lighter weight compared others along with high Cv values; good leak tight shutoff along with wide rangeability making it suitable for various industrial needs depending on their size & material composition.
What is the difference between lug type and wafer type butterfly valve?
The difference between lug type and wafer type butterfly valves lies in their body design. Lug type butterfly valves typically consist of two main parts: a disk mounted on the spindle, and two lugs that attach to the pipe’s flange. The disk is held in place by the bolts that are threaded through the lugs. This type of valve is ideal for larger pipelines as it can handle higher pressures than a wafer valve due to its extra strength from the lugs attached to both sides of the flange.
What are the three types of butterfly valves?
Butterfly valves are a type of flow control device that is used to regulate the flow of air, oil, gas, water and other liquids or semi-liquids in various industrial applications. There are three main types of butterfly valves: concentric butterfly valve, eccentric butterfly valve and triple offset butterfly valve.
Concentric Butterfly Valve: The concentric butterfly valve is the most common type of butterfly valve. It consists of a disc mounted on a shaft connected to an actuator. The disc has two holes aligned along its centerline so that when the actuator rotates it turns the disk to open or close one side at a time. As fluid passes through these holes, it creates pressure which causes the disk to move back and forth in order to regulate flow rate and pressure drop across this type of valve.
Eccentric Butterfly Valve: An eccentric butterfly valve is slightly different than a concentric one as it uses an oblique profile for its disc instead of having two straight holes intersecting perpendicular to each other like in a concentric design. This helps reduce turbulence during operation by allowing more uniform flow through each hole as well as reducing noise during operation due to less interference between the two sides opening/closing simultaneously.
Triple Offset Butterfly Valve: Triple offset designs offer superior sealing capability compared with either concentric or eccentric designs due to their unique geometry which eliminates almost all turbulence generated by passing fluid when opened or closed fully from start position evenly throughout 360 degrees rotation without any contact between inner parts (discs).
