Operations, Maintenance & Storage
TTV butterfly valves offer reliable and efficient flow control solutions for a wide range of applications, from fluid to gas services. To ensure optimal performance and longevity, proper operations, maintenance, installation, and storage practices are essential.
Operating TTV butterfly valves within the specified limits is crucial. Exceeding temperature and pressure ratings can lead to damage of internal and external sealings or castings. Always verify the open and closed direction when mounting pneumatic or electric actuators, ensuring proper valve positioning. TTV wafer butterfly valves require minimal maintenance, however periodic cleaning is recommended. Dismantling any part of the valve while it is installed or operational in the pipeline, especially when fluid is present, is strictly prohibited and may void warranty or cause harm to the operator.
Prioritise careful installation to prevent damage during this process. Ensure adequate space is available for valve placement and follow a cross triangular tightening method for nuts. This will allow uniform tightening without deformation of the valve liners. During extended storage periods, maintain a controlled environment with temperatures not exceeding 25°C and low humidity to avoid condensation. Protect the valves from direct sunlight and contact with corrosive substances. Avoid deformation and store away from materials such as copper or manganese, solvents, grease, oil, and dusty materials. Correct operations, maintenance, installation, and storage are paramount to ensuring the longevity and efficiency of the performance of TTV lugged butterfly valves.
