Cast iron butterfly valve is one kind of butterfly valve, whose main parts material is made of cast iron, like valve body, stem or disc;
Cast iron butterfly valve, also know as cast iron flap valve, is one kind of regulating valve with simple structure, and can also be used for on-off control of medium in low pressure pipelines.
what is butterfly valve?
Butterfly valve refers to a valve whose closing part(valve disc or butterfly plate) is a disc, which rotates around the valve shaft to achieve opening and closing. Butterfly valve is mainly used for cutting off and throttling on the pipelines. The opening and closing part of the butterfly valve is a disc-shaped butterfly plate, which rotates around its own axis in the valve body to achieve the purpose of opening and closing or adjustment. From fully open to fully closed, the rotating angle of the butterfly valve is usually less than 90°.
The butterfly valve and the valve stem have no self-locking ability. In order to locate the butterfly plate, a worm gear reducer should be installed on the valve stem. The use of worm gear reducer can not only make the butterfly plate have self-locking ability, so that the butterfly plate can stop at any position, but also improve the operation performance of the butterfly valve;
The characteristics of the industrial butterfly valve are high temperature resistance, high applicable pressure range, butterfly valve can be made into large diameter valves. For the industrial butterfly valves, the body is made of carbon steel, the sealing ring of the valve disc is made of metal ring instead of rubber ring. For large diameter high temperature butterfly valve, it is welded with steel plates, which is mainly used for flue air duct and gas pipeline of high temperature mediums;
Types of cast iron butterfly valve:
According to different body material, butterfly valve can be divided into cast iron butterfly valve( like ductile cast iron butterfly valve), cast steel butterfly valve( like WCB butterfly valve), stainless steel butterfly valve( like CF8 butterfly valve).
According to end connections, cast iron butterfly valve can be divided into wafer type cast iron butterfly valve, wafer lug type cast iron butterfly valve and flange type cast iron butterfly valve. The wafer type butterfly valve is connected between the two pipeline flanges with studs. The flange type cast iron butterfly valve has flanges on the valve body, and those flanges at both ends of the butterfly valve are connected to the pipeline flanges with bolts;
According to different operating methods, there are manual cast iron butterfly valve, electrical cast iron butterfly valve, pneumatic cast iron butterfly valve.
The cast iron butterfly valve is usually using soft sealing materials, like rubber, NBR, PTFE. So there are rubber lined cast iron butterfly valve, NBR lined cast iron butterfly valve, PTFE lined cast iron butterfly valve.
Applications of cast iron butterfly valve:
The concentric cast iron butterfly valve is widely used in water conservancy, chemical industry, pharmacy, electric power and other industries, and is used for opening and closing on the pipelines of steam, water, and oil mediums; the structure principle of the center line butterfly valve is especially suitable for making large-diameter valves;
