pneumatic actuator control valves, including but not limited to pneumatic butterfly valves, pneumatic ball valves, pneumatic regulating valves and other products.
Pneumatic valves have their unique advantages in any respect. Because the driving force is pneumatic, it is especially fast in response. So what problems should be paid attention to during the installation of newly purchased pneumatic valves? Installation is the prerequisite for use, and the installation process is handled properly, so there will not be too many problems in the use process.
1. Confirm that there is no foreign matter in the clean pipeline. If there is foreign matter, it may damage the sealing surface of the valve or even hinder the action of the valve core and make the valve unable to close normally. Therefore, it is necessary to clean all the pipelines before installing the valve to confirm that there is no foreign body.
2. Check the pneumatic valve. Before installation, check and remove all transportation blocks, protective plugs or gasket surface covers, and check the inside of the valve body to ensure that there are no foreign objects.
3. Most pneumatic valves can be installed in any position, but the most commonly used method is to place the actuator vertically and on the upper part of the valve. If the actuator must be installed horizontally, consider adding an additional vertical support to the actuator. Make sure that the fluid flow direction is consistent with the direction indicated by the flow arrow or instruction manual.
In addition, it is necessary to ensure that there is enough space above and below the pneumatic valve for inspection and maintenance. For flanged valve bodies, ensure that the flange surfaces are accurately aligned to make the gasket surface evenly contact and prevent leakage. The installation technology and operation process are mainly based on the manual, and the technical points of the installation of pneumatic valves.
