Learn about Wafer Style Butterfly Valves
The butterfly valve wafer style is used for liquid flow control and stoppage. This type of valve is based on a flat disc, which can be turned in line with or perpendicular to the flow of liquid. When aligned with the flow, liquid passes around the disc and through the valve. When rotated to be perpendicular, liquid is no longer able to flow through the valve.
In this butterfly valve, wafer style refers to the mounting format. As opposed to the lug type, the butterfly valve wafer type features four mounting holes that will align with the pipe. The wafer type valve is designed to be clamped between two flanges for midstream flow and stop control.
Our valves can be controlled by electric actuators or air actuators, with air butterfly valves available in spring return or double acting construction. Controlled by actuator, butterfly valves offer maximum reliability, accuracy and quality performance.
