Lever Operated Butterfly Valve

Lever operated butterfly valve, has a relatively simple structure, small size, lightweight, and better flow control characteristics. When turning the lever, in the butterfly valve body cylindrical inner channel,  valve disc is associated with the lever around the axis of rotation, rotation Angle is 0° to 90° when rotating to 90°, butterfly valve is in the fully open state. Usually, the lever operators are available for size DI50-300(2" - 12"), but it is recommended that gear operators be used on size DN200(8") and larger.
