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 an alternative to Ball Valves since they use less space, resulting in less material usage and a much lower cost as a result.
