Q15- What is the difference between a pneumatic butterfly valve and an electric butterfly valve?
Pneumatic butterfly valve: The pneumatic butterfly valve uses compressed air for power. It is suitable for gas and liquid medium whose diameter is small. The cost of a pneumatic butterfly valve is low and requires less maintenance. Unfortunately, the air pressure causes fluctuations in the pneumatic butterfly valve and affects the medium during transmission. The pneumatic butterfly valve is faster as compared to the electric butterfly valve.
Electric butterfly valve: The electric butterfly valve uses a motor for power. It is the best choice for the liquid medium and can handle gas with a large diameter. The electric butterfly valve is not affected by any climatic changes and the pressure level in the air compressor. However, the cost of an electric butterfly valve is high and doesn’t work properly in a humid environment.
