Ductile iron butterfly valves have a higher ductile rating and will conform more to the swaying. The ductile iron has good ratings for damping and it is not as highly recommended as cast iron for use on loud or heavy machinery due to the fact that it does not soundproof and it is not durable during vibration. There is a similarity in the chemical composition in the butterfly valve gotten from ductile iron as well as gray iron but any one can be used because the two would ensure durability as well as quality product are produced. The metallic structure is what makes it suitable for the body of the valves.
This valve is available with standard stem connections for manual operation or actuation. It can be used in any kind of water management such as sewage, waste material, chemicals as well as waste service. Ductile iron butterfly valves can also be used for commercial and industrial process applications.
