Does anyone in this forum have experience using butterfly valves (BFV) for flow throttling services? How successful has that been? I have a need to control the flow through a activated sludge returned sludge line using a valve. I typically use plug valves (PV) for this application but at some installations I have seen BFVs also been used for the same purpose. The BFVs are lighter, smaller and relatively cheaper than PVs.
Thanks in advance.
