SS Butterfly Valve- Its Usage And Types

SS Butterfly Valve

SS Butterfly Valve

SS Butterfly Valve is a disc that regulates the flow. It comprises of a circular plate or disc mounted with a stem attached offset or passed through the middle. When opened, the circular plate turns 90° in the valve bore, joining with the flow, making the path for the flow.

The advantage of the SS butterfly valve is that they are easy to install, compact in structure and size, and light in weight. The compact design of these valves makes them cost lower than other types of valves.

Types of the SS butterfly valve

SS Butterfly Valves are mainly classified into three types-

  • Offset Design
  • Damper
  • Centric Design

Centric Design SS Butterfly Valve

Centric design SS butterfly valves are also known as a resilient sealed butterfly valve. In the centric valve, the stem is centered in the middle of the circular plate, and the circular plate is mounted in the valve bore. Effective sealing is accomplished through a resilient seat, creating a tight connection with the seal, which makes them perfect for high-pressure applications.

Double offset SS Butterfly Valve

Similar to the name, the double-offset excellent-performance DI Butterfly Valves have a circular plate with two offsets. The circular plate is situated in the centre of the bore valve and arranged to improve the sealing ability and decrease the wear and tear of the valve. They are perfect for systems demanding higher pressure protection.

Offset Design SS Butterfly Valves

The favourite proven choice for commercial and industrial applications, High-performance SS Butterfly Valves are composed to handle the highest pressures and temperatures. In offset design valves, th shaft doesn’t pass by the seat and instead crosses through the centreline of the circular disc and needs pipe flange gaskets when fitted between pipe collars.

Triple offset SS Butterfly Valve

The triple offset SS Butterfly Valve is used in complex services where steady performance under severe conditions is required. In these triple offset valves, the shaft is positioned behind the circular disc and offset to one side, giving a double-offset to Valve.
