Structure of Wafer Butterfly Valve
The valve structure is such that it is named a butterfly valve because the disc is situated in the center of the disc. The valve should either be fully closed or fully opened when in operation.
The significant parts or the components of a wafer butterfly valve are:
- The main body of the valve
- The valve’s disc is situated in the center and acts as a gate that either stops the liquid from flowing or allows it to flow.
- The seat of the valve helps secure the disc in its place when the machine is in a closed position which enables a complete off position of the valve.
- The stem of the valve helps connect one part of the valve with the other parts.
- The seals of the valve help the valve for a complete seal position or in isolation of the process.
