Season’s Greetings from GF Piping Systems for 2013

Georg Fischer Piping Systems would like to wish you a safe and enjoyable Christmas, and New Year. We look forward to a busy 2014 for all. Please note that our blog will be not be monitored during the festive season from COB Friday 20 December 2013, until Monday January 6, 2014. Please note our offices throughout Australia will be closed from COB, Friday 20 December 2013, and will reopen for business on Thursday January 2, 2014. If you have any urgent inquiries during this time, please contact Simon Naef on 0418 214...

Why Butterfly Valves

The Butterfly Valve controls flow by using a circular disk or vane with its pivot axis at right angles to the direction of flow in the pipe. The butterfly valve requires a minimum of space and is used both for on-off and throttling services. The different markets Chemical process industry Because of the aggressive environment of many applications in the chemical industry, production and transport processes in this segment pose a particular challenge to piping systems regarding safety and quality. When dosing, mixing and batching chemicals – even under the most difficult conditions – good flow and linear control characteristics are basic requirements for efficient and safe processes. Contamination must be prevented in all process steps, especially surface treatment. Integrating the right system components is therefore crucial; the butterfly valves provide high flow performance and precise process control and regulation. Microelectronics The majority of all processes in microelectronics take place under strictly controlled cleanroom conditions. Particularly high demands are placed on the consistent purity of the process water as well as the transport of ultrapure water within the manufacturing process. The butterfly valve with a consistent thermal expansion behaviour at the same time increases safety and consequently reduces the need for costly maintenance. Water treatment Economical and sustainable water treatment is becoming more and more important, especially in light of today of increasing scarcity of resources. In water treatment applications butterfly valves are mainly implemented to transport the water. Energy The innovative design, flow efficiency and control characteristics, for which the butterfly valves are known, are especially appreciated in cooling applications in energy...
