Analyze the key components for controlling industrial fluids - industrial valves

2023-11-22

Industrial valves are key components for controlling fluids and are widely used in various industrial fields such as petrochemicals, energy, and water treatment. Different valve designs and materials are suitable for different fluid control needs. Today, let’s learn about industrial valves and their applications.

1. Ball valve: Ball valve is the most common valve type in fluid control. It has a ball that controls the flow direction and flow rate of the fluid through a rotating ball valve. Ball valves are widely used in various industries, from low to normal pressure to high pressure, from low to normal temperature to high temperature.

2. Butterfly valve: The butterfly valve is a partition valve that controls the flow direction and flow of fluid by rotating the valve disc. Butterfly valves are widely used in petroleum, natural gas, metallurgy, chemical industry, water treatment and other fields due to their simple structure, light weight and easy operation.

3. Check valve: Check valve can prevent the reverse flow of fluid and prevent water hammer in the pipeline. It is an important part of the fluid system. Check valves are widely used in sewage treatment, tap water supply, hydropower generation, fire protection, air conditioning and ventilation, etc.

4. Gate valve: Gate valve is one of the most commonly used valves in fluid control. It controls the flow direction and flow rate of the fluid by lifting the valve stem, and has the function of quickly stopping the fluid flow. Widely used in petrochemical industry, coal chemical industry, electric power industry, etc.

Each of the above valves has its own characteristics, advantages and disadvantages, and the appropriate valve type should be selected according to needs. The correct understanding and use of industrial valves plays a key role in ensuring the industrial production process.
