How many types of butterfly valves are there?

The disc opens and closes with a low-torque rotation of 90 degrees and works for any compatible application.

They tend to cost less and are lighter in weight, so they are preferred over other types of valves. Butterfly valves are often distinguished by the three main types: zero, double, or triple offset.

What can damage butterfly valves?

Disc damage is one common issue with butterfly valves that may need industrial valve repair. Butterfly valve discs can become damaged,

or the edges may wear with regular use, leading to leaks in the line. In these cases, we may need to repair or replace the disc to create a leak-tight seal again.

How long do butterfly valves last?

Butterfly valves last anywhere from ten years to over one hundred years depending on how they are maintained,

what type they are made of, and how often they get used. If butterfly valves are constantly being opened and closed, then it is possible that they could break within less than ten years.
