butterfly valve [butterfly valve]
Omega Valves has different butterfly valve types available to meet your requirements.
Butterfly valves are used for isolating or controlling the flow of fluids. The butterfly valve can be operated either manually by hand (locally) or automatically by an actuator (remotely).
Butterfly valves are smaller and lighter than the ball, gate or globe valves. The simple construction and operating principles make the butterfly valves a cost-effective option. The valve can be modified to minimise fluid losses by altering the disk.
The soft-seated butterfly valve is designed to be cost-effective. With the soft-seated valve, only the disc, stem and seat touch the fluid, making it possible for the material of the body to be constructed of cheaper grade materials. Hence, many soft-seated butterfly valves are configurated in cast iron with stainless steel trim and EPDM seat.
The flow of fluids is controlled by the disc or damper, which rotates on a central stem. The butterfly valve rotates to 90⁰ or for a quarter turn to open or close the valve. Other specific applications are possible by opening the valve at fixed points of 10⁰, 20⁰, 40⁰ and 45⁰. Most butterfly valve types are bi-directional and can be rotated in either direction.
