Can you control flow with a butterfly valve?

Unlike gate valves, butterfly valves can be used for throttling or regulating flow as well as in the full open and fully closed position. The pressure loss through a butterfly valve is small in comparison with the gate valve.

What are the three types of butterfly valves?

There are 3 main categories of butterfly valves: Rubber-lined, Plastic-lined, and Metal….Welded

  • Used for very-high-pressure applications.
  • Because most plastic lined valves are limited to PN10/16 (150#) flanges, this type is rarely seen with plastic-lined valves.
  • Garlock does not offer this type of valve.

What controls the butterfly valve?

A butterfly valve controls flow through a pipe using a single disc mounted on a central shaft. A resilient seated butterfly valve includes a rubber seat between the outer diameter of the disc and the inner wall of the valve.

Are butterfly valves good for throttling?

BUTTERFLY VALVES They are generally used for handling large flows of gases or liquids, including slurries, but should not be used for throttling for extended periods of time. They are also very compact relative to flanged gate and ball valves.

What is butterfly valve not suitable for?

A lug-style butterfly is suitable for end-of-line service but wafer-style butterfly valves can not be used for end-of-line services. In case there is a maintenance requirement on the line having water style butterfly valve, the entire line needs to be shut down.

Do you need gasket for butterfly valves?

Most butterfly valves do not require extra gaskets. All the butterfly valves available on for example have built in seals that sit against your flanges and prevent leakage.

What kind of valve is a butterfly valve?

quarter-turn valve
The butterfly valve is classified as a quarter-turn valve. It works like a ball valve for quick shutoff, but unlike a ball valve, the butterfly valve can also open and close incrementally. This difference means that the disc is always present in the flow and allows for a drop in pressure.

Do butterfly valves prevent backflow?

This type of connection is designed for sealing against bi-directional differential pressures and to prevent backflow in systems designed for universal flow.

Is butterfly valve a good control valve?

Butterfly valves are a great (and less expensive) alternative to globe and other control valves in applications where 1-2% accuracy is acceptable. Process conditions will dictate whether a resilient seated or high performance butterfly valve should be selected.

Is gasket required for butterfly valve?

When would you use a butterfly valve?

Butterfly valves are used for applications that require handling large volume capacities. It can be used for flow control and regulation and on/off service. Recent developments have permitted this type of valve to throttle more accurately and perform well in high-temperature and high-pressure applications.
