What operating conditions should I choose for the electric butterfly valve?

Posted by Bundor valve
The opening and closing speed of the electric butterfly valve can be adjusted. The structure is simple and easy to maintain. It can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids such as air, water, steam, various corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metal and radioactive media.

The electric butterfly valve device is an indispensable device for realizing valve program control, automatic control and remote control, and its movement process can be controlled by the stroke, torque or axial thrust. Since the operating characteristics and utilization of electric butterfly valve devices depend on the type of valve, the working specifications of the device and the position of the valve on the pipeline or equipment, the correct selection of electric butterfly valve devices will prevent overloading (working torque is higher than the control) Torque) is critical.

Because the electric device in the electric butterfly valve is an electromechanical device, its working condition is greatly affected by its working environment. Bundor Valve introduces you to the working environment of the electric butterfly valve:

1. Has a flammable, explosive gas or dust environment;
2. The environment on the ship or dock (salt fog, mold, moisture);
3. Occasions with severe vibration;
4. Places prone to fire;
5. Humid tropical and dry tropical environment;
6. The temperature of the pipeline medium is above 480℃;
7. Indoor installation or outdoor use with protective measures;
8. Outdoor open-air installation, eroded by wind, sand, rain, dew and sunlight;
9. The ambient temperature is below -20℃;
10. Easy to be flooded or submerged;
11. Have a radioactive material (nuclear power plant and radioactive material test device) environment.

For the electric butterfly valve in the above environment, the structure, materials and protective measures of the electric device are different. Therefore, Bundor Valve recommends that you should select the corresponding valve electric device according to the above working environment.
