Difference between elec butterfly valve and elec gate valve
The difference between electric butterfly valve and electric gate valve is mainly manifested in structure, opening and closing time, price, size, sealing character, applicable operating mode and so on. Due to the different features, users should buy the products according to their own needs and specific situation. Only choosing the right product, can we make the work smooth and easy.
1. With simple structure, small volume and light weight, electric butterfly valves can save the material consumption while electric gate valves have large dimension and opening height, as well as its installation space.
2. Compared with electric gate valves, electric butterfly valves have faster opening and closing speed and smaller flow resistance coefficient.
3. For price, electric gate valves are more expensive.
4. The diameter of electric butterfly valves can be larger than electric gate valves.
5. Electric gate valves can have higher pressure and better sealing character than electric butterfly valves.
6. Electric gate valves are not suitable to be used to adjust the flow, but electric butterfly valves can.
7. Different from electric butterfly valves, electric gate valves can work in high temperature and high pressure conditions because of the wearability.
Through the comparison of the above, we can see there are quite many different points between these two electric valves, such as different features and applicable situations. Due to this point, users should pay special attention to their characteristics and then make the best choice.
