How to Select a Triple Offset Butterfly Valve

triple offset butterfly valve

A triple offset butterfly valve features a special design that offers many advantages over other types of valves. The unique sealing design of this valve allows it to achieve bubble-tight shut off and metal-to-metal seals, even in the most challenging applications. Triple offset butterfly valves are ideal for harsh media and can withstand high temperatures and pressures. They are also extremely durable and require less operating torque than other valves.Read more:

BM Engineering, a leading manufacturer of double eccentric butterfly valves and a leader in the industry, recently shared some tips for selecting the right valve for your application. The first step in choosing the proper valve for your application is to determine the fluid type and rated pressure of your system. These factors will impact the type of valve materials and overall performance.

Innovation in Motion: How Triple Offset Butterfly Valves Improve Process Efficiency

When it comes to actuation, consider the stroking capabilities of the valve and its control options (manual, pneumatic, electric). Consider the piping configuration, connection type and size, and if you’ll need an actuator. Choose a valve with a low-torque operation that can be easily manipulated by hand for manual actuation, or an actuator that can operate at a lower torque to save on energy costs.

Also, make sure the valve is rated for the maximum pressure it will be exposed to in the environment. Ensure the seat and seal are made from corrosion-resistant materials to ensure a long service life. Triple-offset valves also feature no cavities between the sealing components, so there’s no room for debris to clog and disrupt the sealing mechanism. This translates to repeatable sealing and longer valve lifespans.
