A butterfly valve is a specific piece of hardware designed to control the flow of any kind of liquid or semi-liquid material passing through a series of pipes. These pipes can transport a variety of materials such as water, oil, fuel, waste, or any other type of gas, liquid or semi-liquid material.
Although, the importance of butterfly valve flow adjustment( it is also known as“ความสำคัญของการปรับการไหลของวาล์วผีเสื้อ“ theThai language) is made through the use of a circular disc that is rotated to provide clearance or closure to the inner pipe surface. When the disc is spun to a position perpendicular to the inner passage of the pipe, it closes off the passage and stops the flow completely.

The construction material of a valve determines its capabilities and longevity. Valves that are designed for heavy flow, high pressure, and long-term use, especially in remote locations, are generally constructed out of a cast or strengthened metal.
Moreover, Choosing a valve according to a specific application is important. Some are lightweight and designed for small waterlines or fuel line control. Aquariums, pools, and sprinkler systems are good examples of light-duty, non-critical uses for butterfly valves.
Instead of this, more demanding applications such as gas pipelines, oil transport systems or high-pressure city water switching systems require high-quality, reliable valves with an extended life-cycle.
In conclusion, butterfly valves have a huge amount of utility and are easy to use, even in industrial applications where specific butterfly valves made of CPVC are required. With a quarter-turn of the handle, they completely shut on or off. They also allow for partial opening, which means the operator has complete control of how much fluid passes through a system
