Any Butterfly Valve Configuration
A butterfly valve is from a family of valves called quarter-turn valves. In operation, the valve is fully open or closed when the disc is rotated a quarter turn. The "butterfly" is a metal disc mounted on a rod. When the valve is closed, the disc is turned so that it completely blocks off the passageway. When the valve is fully open, the disc is rotated a quarter turn so that it allows an almost unrestricted passage of the fluid. The valve may also be opened incrementally to throttle flow.
A single energy, industrial or processing facility can contain many critical valves. And they come in a surprising variety of engineering configurations. Our extensive inventory of ready-to-ship products includes a wide variety of valve types, ranging from commodities to the exotic, and from the most recognized and respected manufacturers in the industry.
