In this guide, we will walk you through the main features of these valves, their proper installation and operation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and much more. Rest assured that by the end of this guide, you will have an in-depth understanding of U style flanged butterfly valves and their applications.
Main Features and Components
- ISO 5211 Top Flange: Designed for direct mounting of actuators, providing a tight and secure connection for efficient valve operation.
- Stem Anti-Blowout Design: This safety feature prevents the stem from being ejected out of the valve during operation, ensuring workplace safety and equipment integrity.
- Two-piece Construction: Allows for minimal leakage and maintenance by simplifying the valve’s design and improving its sealing capabilities.
- Rotatable Disc: Provides precision flow control, enabling users to fine-tune flow rates effortlessly.
- Full-Ported Design: Ensures smooth and continuous fluid flow with minimal pressure drop, increasing overall system efficiency.
- Verify that the valve size, pressure rating, and material compatibility match the system requirements.
- Inspect the valve and ensure that the sealing surfaces are clean and free from defects.
- Install the valve between properly aligned flanges, with the disc in a slightly open position to avoid damage to the sealing surfaces.
- Apply gasket material, if required, between the valve and flanges, ensuring a tight seal.
- Secure the flanges using the appropriate bolt and nut combination, tightening bolts in a star pattern for even pressure distribution.
- Open and close the valve a few times to ensure smooth operation before applying system pressure.
- If equipped with a manual handwheel or lever, ensure proper orientation and accessibility for ease of operation.
- For automated valves, connect the actuator to the appropriate power supply and control system, ensuring compatibility and proper settings.
