Question:

How can the flange butterfly valve be installed on the pipe?

How can the flange butterfly valve be installed on the pipe?

Answer:

Direction.Butterfly valve in theory can be installed in any direction, it is recommended that the horizontal installation of the valve shaft installation, so that both ends of the bearings will not be at the bottom (below), so as to avoid sediment in the media into the bearing.Inlet pipe configuration.There are water inlet side valve elbow, tee pipe fluid caused by bending and uneven distribution of the inflow valve, the drift will occur in the pipe, so it must be generated by the uniform drift disposed on both sides of the disc, so as to avoid uneven force on both sides of the disc, and may produce additional torque.
Outlet pipe configuration.If in the pipeline, the valve in order to do not bear the direction of the force and bending moment, it is best to set the valve at the exit side of the expansion joint. Valve opening and closing valve water pressure should not be borne by the foot, but through the valve flange, by the pipeline to bear as well.Butterfly valve structure is generally shorter length, and its butterfly plate will be extended to adjacent pipes or other parts, so be careful not to collide with other parts and interference. And to prevent the error matching pipe diameter greater than C and collide with the butterfly plate.Butterfly valve as a regulator, just adjust the flow and pressure. The valve is regulated by loss of pressure.
It is better to install it vertically or horizontally, and leave some space for maintenance
