Principle of Soft seated
Figure 1 DISC OPEN
In Figure 1, the disc and seat are not engaged. In this position, the shoulders of the seat are forced against the cavity shoulders by the compression of the O-ring.
The seat is recessed inside the seat cavity and acts as a gasket I the anchoring groove area. The seat cavity is sealed from the exposure from the process fluid and protects the seat from abrasion and wear. The O-ring, which is completely encapsulated by the seat, is also isolated from exposure to the process fluid
Figure 2 DISC CLOSED, Self-Energized Seal
In Figure2, the disc and seat are engaged, and the process fluid is under low pressure. The edge of the disc, with a larger diameter than the seat tongue, directs movement of the seat radially outward, causing the seat to compress against the convergent sidewalls of the cavity. The elastomeric O-ring imparts a mechanical pre-load between the discfand seat tongue as it is compressed and flattened by the disc; this is the self-energized mode for sealing at vacuum-to-60 psig.
As the seat moves radially outward, the seat shoulders move away from the cavity shoulders and open the cavity to the process media
Figure 3 DISC CLOSED, Pressure-energized Seal (Seat Upstream)
As line pressure increases, the process fluid enters the sidewall area and applies a load against the parallel-spaced sidewall and convergent sidewall of the seat. The seat and cavity design permits the seat to move axially to the downstream sidewall, but confines the movement and directs the movement radially inward towards the disc; the higher the line pressure, the tighter the seal between the disc and seat. Because the O-ring is elastic, it is able to flex and deform under loads and return to original shape after removal of the load; it is the rubber which deforms, not the thermoplastic material
The dynamic seal s totally unique among high performance butterfly valves.
Figure 4 DISC CLOSED, Pressure-Energized Seal (Seat Downstream)
The HPBFV is bi-directional (in some instances, modifications may be required to operate this arrangement for dead end services). The cavity and seat sidewall are symmetrically designed to permit, confined and direct movement of the seat to the disc to dynamically seal with line pressure in the reverse direction. The disc edge is the segment of a sphere, and the seat is angled towards the disc edge to seal with pipeline pressure in either direction.
Recommended installation direction is “SUS”(seat upstream) , as in the Figure 3
