FAQs

A butterfly valve is a valve which can be used for isolating or regulating flow. The closing mechanism takes the form of a disk. Operation is similar to that of a ball valve, which allows for quick shut off. Butterfly valves are generally favored because they are lower in cost to other valve designs as well as being lighter in weight, meaning less support is required. The disc is positioned in the center of the pipe, passing through the disc is a rod connected to an actuator on the outside of the valve. Rotating the actuator turns the disc either parallel or perpendicular to the flow. Unlike a ball valve, the disc is always present within the flow, therefore a pressure drop is always induced in the flow, regardless of valve position.

A butterfly valve is from a family of valves called quarter-turn valves. In operation, the valve is fully open or closed when the disc is rotated a quarter turn. The “butterfly” is a metal disc mounted on a rod. When the valve is closed, the disc is turned so that it completely blocks off the passageway. When the valve is fully open, the disc is rotated a quarter turn so that it allows an almost unrestricted passage of the fluid. The valve may also be opened incrementally to throttle flow.

High performance butterfly valve is generally made to use on the high pressure piping system. The high performance double offset butterfly valve, used in higher-pressure systems, is offset from the centre line of the disc seat and body seal (offset one), and the centre line of the bore (offset two). This creates a cam action during operation to lift the seat out of the seal resulting in less friction than is created in the zero offset design and decreases its tendency to wear.

EMIS high performance butterfly valve offers the high-performance butterfly valves with the low-cost, lightweight benefits of a butterfly valve design. It is ideal for handling water, oil, steam, gas, and slurries. Huamei high-performance butterfly valves satisfy a wide range of industrial applications. Available in carbon steel or stainless steel, as well as lug and wafer body styles, they can be specified in sizes 2″ through 60″.

Main Product Features:

1. Double offset/eccentric design with bi-directional bubble-tight shutoff performance, extrmely high pressure application than ordinary butterfly valves.
2. Double offset/eccentric configuration with conical angled disc design. Long life durability due to double offset operating principle minimizing seat wear.
3. High pressure application with small torque. Maximize flow and minimize resistance providing high Cv.
4. Seat available in either Soft (PTFE/RTFE), Metal or Fire Safe. Fast and simple seat replacement. All of soft seats, Metal seats and Fire Safe seats are interchageable.
5. Excellent corrosion resistance.
6. Internal travel stop design to prevent over travel of the disc, minimizing possible seat damage.
