Fabricated butterfly valves are a type of butterfly valve constructed by welding together separate pieces of metal, typically steel plates. This differs from cast iron butterfly valves, which are formed by pouring molten metal into a mold.

  • Lighter and stronger construction: Fabrication allows for lighter weight designs compared to cast iron valves, while still maintaining high pressure ratings.
  • Lower torque: The lighter weight translates to lower torque required for operation, making them easier to automate.
  • Assured sealing to atmosphere: Fabricated valves can provide a more reliable seal against leaks to the surrounding environment.
  • Wider pressure and temperature range: Fabrication allows for the use of different materials for the body and disc, enabling them to handle a broader range of pressures and temperatures.
  • Generally higher cost: Fabrication is a more complex process compared to casting, which can make them more expensive.
  • Longer lead times: Custom designs or valves for high-pressure applications may require longer lead times for fabrication.

Fabricated butterfly valves are suitable for various industrial applications due to their high strength and ability to handle a wide range of pressures and temperatures. Here are some common uses:

  • Oil and gas pipelines
  • Power plants
  • Chemical processing plants
  • Water and wastewater treatment plants
  • Marine applications
  • Pressure and temperature rating: Choose a valve with a rating exceeding your application’s requirements.
  • Pipe size and flange type: Ensure compatibility with your existing piping system.
  • Material selection: Select appropriate materials for the body, disc, and seat based on the fluid being handled.
  • Actuation type: Decide between manual, pneumatic, or electric actuation depending on your automation needs.
