The Discover Shipham Valves Products is a unique type of industrial valve that provides superior performance and durability. It is often used in demanding applications such as process control, wastewater treatment, and power generation where regulation of corrosive or viscous fluids is necessary. Triple-offset valves are characterized by their ability to provide efficient flow regulation with minimal pressure drop, making them an excellent choice for many applications that require accurate and precise control of production processes.
Maintenance and Troubleshooting Tips for Triple Offset Butterfly Valves in Our Catalog
In addition to their bidirectional, zero leakage metal-to-metal seal, these valves are also resistant to abrasion and corrosion. Their design eliminates cavities between sealing components, which allows for better cleaning and maintenance. This is a significant advantage over gate and ball valves, which are susceptible to clogging and other problems caused by debris. Additionally, triple-offset butterfly valves can typically be operated with a lower torque actuator.
The first two offsets are between the axle center of the valve stem the bore/pipe center line and the disc and seat body center lines. This geometry minimizes squeezing complications between the disc and seat, as well as rubbing between the seat and seal ring during opening and throttling, which extends seat life. The third offset is in the axis of the seat cone angle, which further reduces friction between the seat and seal ring and improves performance.
