        If you have been working in the pharmaceutical and beverage industry for a long time, you will know the importance of butterfly valves. But do you really know how they work? Even better, do you know the main components of the butterfly valve?

       Butterfly valves are used to control the flow of fluid. The structure and mechanism of the butterfly faucet are similar to those of the ball valve. This means that a spherical disk has a hole and a rod that passes through the disk so that when the faucet is opened, the fluid flowing through it flows transparently. When the faucet is turned off, the flow is clearly blocked. There are four main components that make the sanitary butterfly valve work: body, seat, handle and operator. Most high performance butterfly valves have a valve body that can be easily installed between two pipes. This allows the valve to increase productivity. Remember that not all valves are the same. Some are designed for drinks and some are designed for drugs.

       The technology of sanitary butterfly valves has grown steadily over time. This explains why valves are used in many industries today. For example, a common butterfly comes from a combination of a quarter turn faucet, or is more suitable for faucets of all sizes, for different purposes and to handle different temperatures and pressures. The larger the size of the butterfly valve, the greater the pressure it will withstand. Each part of the butterfly valve contributes its usefulness and functionality in some way. These works are interdependent. In other words, if the part is damaged or has a burr, the valve may not work at all. The two most important parts are:

        Disc - The valve uses a large rotating disc as the control unit. It acts as the primary fluid passage for the faucet control. The first use of the disc is primarily to control the flow of water in the piping system. This is logical because the valve is designed to isolate and regulate the jet of water and other fluids. Keep in mind that the faucet can also be used to control the in and out of air in the car carburetor.

         Seat - The seat uses the inference adjustment between the edge of the disc and the seat to ensure that the valve stops. The seat may be stuck to the body or stuck. The seat material can be made of a polymer or a metal. When the valve must withstand extreme temperatures, the main use of metal
