Butterfly Valves are predominately used to provide flow control or isolation of liquids or gases in a pipeline. The valve can be fully open or fully closed and is referred to as a quarter turn valve providing a leak tight seal when closed.
Industries that use Butterfly Valves include:
- Oil & Gas
- Water and Wastewater Treatment
- Power Generation
Butterfly valves are a good alternative to Ball Valves since they use less space resulting in less material and a much lower cost.
