Gate valves, often with gear boxes and chains have been used in traditional steam control and isolation applications. Based on past experience it has been noted that these valves tend to stick over time and are difficult to operate and don’t provide the required isolation characteristics.
Advances in butterfly valves and in particular the triple-offset design has made them ideal replacement valves for these difficult application in steam flow control. Due to the unique triple offset design, the unseating and seating torque of the butterfly valve is greatly reduced. Further the unique 3-dimensional cut pattern of the disc and seat ensures complete isolation and seal every time.
