Pneumatic actuated butterfly valve is one butterfly valve which is operated by a pneumatic cylinder. The power source of the pneumatic actuated butterfly valve is the compressed air. Then today we are going to introduce where pneumatic actuated butterfly valve is used and how pneumatic butterfly valve works.
Where a pneumatic actuated butterfly valve is used:
Pneumatic actuated butterfly valve is generally installed on small diameter pipes to control the flow of fluids such as water, steam, air, mud, oil and various corrosive mediums.
Pneumatic actuated butterfly valve is small in size, light in weight, easy to install and maintain. The pneumatic operated butterfly valve mentioned above is driven by compressed air, which has high requirements for air quality, so the driving device of the pneumatic butterfly valve also includes various accessories, such as air filter pressure reducing valve, pneumatic solenoid valve, positioner,etc. The function of the former is to filter impurities and moisture in the air, and the function of the later is to control the opening and closing of the actuator.
How pneumatic actuated butterfly valve works?
Pneumatic actuated butterfly valve sucks dry and lubricated air through positioner, solenoid valve or other equipment, and controls them, then transmits the gas to the cylinder of the pneumatic actuator, and compresses the air to become the air source for the pneumatic actuator to work. When the compressed air in the cylinder is delivered into the air chamber of the pneumatic actuator, the air pressure acts on the piston, and the generated thrust drives the output shaft to rotate, and at the same time drives the valve stem and the disc to rotate, which completes an opening and closing action of the butterfly valve. Pneumatic butterfly valve uses the compressed air to push multiple sets of pneumatic pistons in the actuator to move, driving the hollow spindle to rotate, and the compressed air plate is delivered to each cylinder to change the position of the air inlet and outlet to change the direction of rotation of the spindle, according to the torque requirement of the butterfly valve, the number if cylinder combination can be adjusted to drive the work of the butterfly valve.
A valve positioner can be installed to the pneumatic actuated butterfly valve, which can adjust the opening of the butterfly valve accurately. It is also possible to use an intelligent positioner to connect with the field main line to detect the working state of the pneumatic butterfly valve.
Through the work of the pneumatic cylinder, the butterfly valve can be opened and closed flexibly and fast, which can effectively ensure the safety of the pipelines, pneumatic actuated butterfly valve is one widely used control valve in pipelines.
