What are the differences between gate valve and butterfly valve

- Dec 14, 2017 -

First; different ways of action

Today the market stable performance of the valve opening and closing the valve plate is driven to do the vertical movement so as to achieve the purpose of opening and closing the valve through the valve stem, this unique mode of operation to ensure the timely will all achieve better cut off the flow through the valve plate closed butterfly valve; the rotary motion of a valve opening and closing, so in the open and close to maintain demand faster.


Two; the use effect is different

Today the market stable performance of the valve in use can ensure better sealing effect, this is because the valve plate is related to the track can be directly inserted under the support force on both sides of the track, so in the use of the valve is to use a better sealing effect; and the valve has a certain flow regulation function, can be in use frequent operation according to the requirements, so it can be used in quick opening occasions, but the sealing performance of the valve as far as compared with.


Three; the direction of use is different

Today the market valve manufacturers professional production valve products also has good effect and strong sealing performance, can be used in some occasions of high requirements for sealing butterfly valve with a small size; and the advantages in some limited installation space to use, the difference is mainly due to the direction of correlation between the valve and butterfly valve can focus there are larger differences.


Nowadays, the demand for pipeline circulation control is higher and higher. Gate valves and butterfly valves also need continuous optimization and upgrading according to market requirements, and valve superior sealing has become the valve device of many important liquid pipes nowadays. Even so, we can not ignore the superior performance of butterfly valves. They have their own advantages and disadvantages. Their directions of use vary widely. They do not interfere with each other and play a crucial role in different industries.
