Cause of failure: Uneven compression force or uncompressed pipe flange.
Elimination method: press the flange bolts or re-tighten the bolts with uniform force.
Through the above common butterfly valve failure is not difficult to find, these are because of the large-diameter butterfly valve do not understand and caused, therefore, proper maintenance and understanding of the equipment, or can avoid failure so that the large-diameter butterfly valve to play its true role, to provide security for the working conditions!
