This kind of valve is more popular due to the choice of seat as well as the lining. Moreover the disc options have significantly enhanced the demand for the same over latest years making the valve a smart alternative.


Being full with all the favourable qualities like wide range of materials with desired sizes and pressure ratings offers a reliable and positive isolation with moderate flow control potential more than a wide range of applications all the way through the valve industry. The petrochemical trade and oil industry use this metal seated valve because they are fire safe, lightweight as well as perfectly suitable for actuation.


If used for the appropriate application these butterfly valves offer you a great number of advantages. It is suitable for chemical services. The main advantage the valve is that it can be used where space is the less. It is designed to be used with small dimensions.
