The equipment operator with a handwheel turns the disc in the valve seat to fully open, manage, or stop flow through the valve. Butterfly valves are utilized to manage flow in between pipelines, tubes, and hoses by rotating a lens-shaped disc in the center of the valve and are suited for high-capacity, low-pressure applications. When the valve is fully opened, the disc face is parallel to the inlet and outlet of the valve, and when the valve is closed, the disc face is perpendicular to the opening of the valve.
Wafer-style design for a seal against two-way pressure to prevent backflow in single-direction systems
Made of iron for compressive strength and more flexible and elastic than cast iron; Buna-N seats provide high tensile strength and resistant to oil, fuel, and other chemicals
Gear operator with a handwheel for manual flow control
Maximum pressure of 200 pounds per square inch (psi); Upper temperature range of 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
Flanged connection surrounds the body for bolting to pipes
