Tips For Selecting The Valve For Paint Production Industry

The paint production industry generally includes manufacturers of paints, coatings, and coatings, which are used primarily to protect and decorate buildings, automobiles, ships, and various other objects.

In the paint production industry, chemicals and raw materials such as resins, pigments, additives and thinners are commonly used to manufacture various types of paint products. These chemicals require specific mixing and handling to produce high-quality paint products.

Processing steps such as raw material preparation, premix preparation, grinding and dispersion, and adjustment of viscosity and consistency. Each step has the potential to produce toxic substances. Therefore, we need an automated paint production line to automate production, ensure that humans can stay away from harmful production environments, and ensure that human living environments are safe. Then the valve becomes essential.

Types Of Valves For The Paint Production Industry

● Ball Valve

Ball valve is a variety of valves. It has different structure options, material options and linking methods to match different production pipelines. In the paint production process, it is mainly used to control the flow and direction of liquid or gas, and is often used for mixing and transfer work in the paint production process.

● Butterfly Valve

Butterfly valve is a valve with simple structure. Its advantages are easy installation, easy operation, easy maintenance and wide application. This type of valve is usually used for rapid control of flow. Their compact design allows them to operate in tight pipes or systems.

● Gate Valve

Gate valve is a large-diameter valve and a linear operation valve. It is often used to control high-pressure liquid or gas to open or close the flow. They are commonly used in liquid piping on production lines and are designed for applications where operations are frequent.

● Check Valve

The check valve is a valve that prevents the direction flow of the medium to ensure the normal operation of the pipeline. Usually installed on the pipe, it can ensure that the liquid or gas can only flow in one direction. It can avoid problems caused by reverse flow when liquid or gas needs to flow backward.

● Control Valve

A regulating valve is a valve used to regulate pipeline pressure or flow. Through the positioner or the electric device, the opening and closing angle of the valve is precise, so as to achieve the function of precise adjustment.

Tips For Selecting The Valve

● Valve Type

For the paint production industry, it is necessary to choose a valve type that can adapt to different pressure and temperature requirements. As the viscosity of the primary product or commodity changes, the flow coefficient of the valve should be adjusted accordingly.

● Material

It is necessary to pay attention to whether the selected valve material can withstand the chemical reaction, humid environment, high temperature and high pressure during the production process, etc. Generally, stainless steel (including 304 and 316, etc.) and PVC materials are more common.

● Application Specific Requirements

In some special application areas, such as explosion hazard areas, sanitary areas, etc., valves are required to have special designs and materials. In this case, it is necessary to choose a valve that meets the corresponding standards and regulations.
