Butterfly Valves

The Butterfly valves are classified as "quarter-turn" valves. When the metal disk that's part of the valve’s design is rotated a quarter of a turn, it opens or closes. The disc, referred to as the "butterfly" is attached to a rod. When the butterfly valve is opened all the way, the disc rotates (a 1/4 turn), allowing for a nearly unrestricted passing of the fluid. You can also open the valve gradually to reduce flow. Turning the butterfly (disc), to close the valve, blocks the passage of the fluid. This is due to the disc always being perpendicular or parallel to the flow, resulting in a pressure decrease regardless of the position it is in.

Lug Butterfly Valve

The lug version of the butterfly valve's design is similar to a 3-piece ball valve in that one end of the line can be taken off without having an effect on the opposing side. It can be executed by using threaded inserts, flanges, along with two sets of lugs (bolts) that don't utilize nuts since each flange features its own bolts. It's also important to note that you don't need to shut down the entire system in order to clean, inspect, repair, or replace a lug butterfly valve (you would need to with a wafer butter valve).
