2# How To Prevent A Bellow Seal Valve From Failing?
A bellow valve is a highly reliable device to avoid leakage in industrial piping systems. There are different causes of failure of a bellow valve, including improper selection, inappropriate installation, poor manufacturing quality, and lack of performance. However, you can prevent a bellow seal valve from failure. Follow the below-mentioned tips:
- Keep on checking high inlet pressure variations and backpressure
- Always choose the right size and type of a bellow seal valve
- Make sure that it is working within stem stroke ranges, accurate temperature, and suitable pressure
- Prevent cavitation, flashing, and inappropriate damage during operation
3# What Precautions Are Necessary While Using A Bellow Seal Valve?
You must follow some precautions while using a bellow seal valve. These precautions include:
- Read all warnings are instructions to avoid equipment damage or personal injury
- Follow regular maintenance steps and professional re-conditioning stages
- In case of highly corrosive chemical environment, always use double seal bellows
- If the valve cover is wet or there is a smell of media, there must be some kind of damage in the bellow.
- Avoid prolonged negligence that can cause damage to the entire valve
- Avoid excessive tightening that hinders the free movement of the plug system
4# What Are The Differences Between An Ordinary Valve Or A Bellow Seal Valve?
- In the case of heated oil transfer systems, other valve systems have high chances of hot oil spillage and loss of equipment. On the contrary, a bellow seal valve offers negligible leakage due to its construction.
- Other valves are less resistant to high temperature, high pressure, and corrosion. It causes leakage and destruction in the valve. On the other hand, a bellow seal valve works efficiently under high pressure, high temperature, and corrosive environments.
- As the internal parts of a bellow seal valve are made of stainless steel, they are highly durable than ordinary valves. They can withstand temperatures above 450C. At the same time, other valves made of standard materials cannot withstand high-temperature ranges.
5# What Is Parts Inspection Test For A Bellow Seal Valve?
Parts inspection test ensures the working and efficiency of all parts of a bellow seal valve, and it requires special inspection conditions and ambience. These specific conditions include the temperature of 5-40C, humidity level of 20%-80%, and an atmospheric pressure of 86kPa to 106kPa. Usually, this test is performed in three cycles. After three rotations, a minimum value is taken to calculate the minimum cycle life. If a bellow seal valve passes all three test cycles, it is safe for use. It meets the quality standards. It is not considered qualified if it fails to qualify any test cycles.
6# What Is Sealing Test & Whole Machine Test Of A Bellow Seal Valve?
1# Sealing Test:
This test determines invisible leakage in a bellow seal valve. It is conducted in a water tank at specific conditions, including 0.16mpa under atmospheric pressure and 20C temperature for 3 minutes. Hence, it helps to maintain the quality standards of a bellow seal valve.
2# Whole Machine Test:
This test inspects all parts of a bellow seal valve in a fully assembled form to determine its efficiency. All parts and body cavities are cleaned before assembly. Moreover, you can remove the burr too. Once all parts are assembled, they are inspected and tested. It includes everything such as surface polishing, cleaning, painting, and polishing.
7# Which Points You Should Consider Before Installing A Bellow Seal Valve?
- Clean inside of the pipe for removing foreign substances, including pipe chips, scales, gravels, or welding spatters. It prevents leakage and damage to the valve.
- Follow a flow direction arrow on the valve casing to ensure that fluid flows in the same direction.
- Check if there is any hazardous scratch present on the surface of the flange.
- Tighten the flange equally and gradually tighten bolts diagonally to ensure the best alignment.
- Remove protection cap at the groove or the socket a moment before piping.
- Always keep the valve closed while welding the valve and piping system.
- Read the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer.
8# How To Store A Bellow Seal Valve?
If you have purchased bellow seal valves in bulk, you can store them for future use. However, follow these simple guidelines to keep a bellow seal valve for longer.
- Please do not remove the packing or covering of the bellow seal valve unless you are ready to install it at a desirable location.
- Always store bellow seal valves indoor places. Avoid placing them outdoor. Keep them away from moisture, dirt, or grease to enhance their lifestyle.
- Remove polyethene cap or protection seal at the end of the valve just before installation.
- Keep on monitoring them after a significant interval to ensure their packaging.
9# What Are The Best Materials For Manufacturing A Bellow Seal Valve?
A bellow seal valve consists of three popular materials including:
- Stainless steel AISI 316Ti is the most popular material for manufacturing a bellow seal valve. It contains Titanium that can withstand high-temperature ranges.
- Inconel 600 or Inconel 625 offers excellent resistance, temperature resistance, and fatigue strength.
- Hastalloy C-276 is one of the most significant materials that offer excellent temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and fatigue strength than Inconel.
These materials are highly durable for critical working environments. Please contact us now to find more information about the manufacturing materials of bellow seal valves.
10# What Is The Difference Between Single-Ply & Multi-Ply Bellow Seal Valve Designs?
1# Single-Ply Bellow Seal Valve:
It has a single layer thickness of the metal sheet. Single-ply bellow seal valve is suitable for low-pressure applications, less stroke length, less stroke pressure, and temperature, and it subjects to metal fatigue under critical working environments.
2# Multi-Ply Bellow Seal Valve:
It has a multi-layer thickness of the metal sheet. Multi-ply bellow seal valve is suitable for high-pressure handling fluids. It increases pressure by 80% to 100% than a single-ply bellow seal valve of the same thickness. Its material of construction, fabrication technique, stroke frequency, and stroke length make it reliable for complex industrial applications.
11# What Are Potential Failures In A Bellow Seal Valve & How To Troubleshoot Them?
No flow in the valve
Flanged dust caps are intact
Valves must be opened
Remove flange dust caps
Poor flow in the valve
Inappropriate opening of valves
Pipelines are clogged
Valves must be opened
Clean or replace all the filters
Inspection of pipelines
Difficulties in the controlling system
Stem is dry
Tightened gland packaging
Lubricate the stem
Lose gland nuts
Leakage in stem
Damage to bellow
Replace upper parts of a valve and accurately tighten the glands
Leakage in seal
Incorrect shut off valve
Damage to seat & disc
Do not use auxiliary tools to tighten the handwheels
Contact a supplier or replace it
Manage direction and flow of fluid
Clean the valves regularly
Damaged connecting flange
Uneven tightening of bolts
12# What If A Bellow Seal Valve Is Operating Too Close To Set Pressure?
Operating too close to set pressure takes the valve in the simmer position. In this state, a valve is neither open nor close. It may cause galling or fatigue failure in a bellow seal valve. It is the leading causes of failures in bellow seal valves. You can reduce this type of failure by following the below-mentioned tips:
- Lower the operating pressure
- Use a pilot-operated relief valve. It offers a high tolerance between system pressure and the valve’s set pressure.
Feel free to contact our experienced, professional, and certified engineers for dealing with this problem.
13# What Are The Disadvantages Of A Bellow Seal Valve?
A bellow seal valve is an ultra-efficient device for managing leakage in various piping systems. Although it has a large number of benefits, there are some shortcomings. Its disadvantages include:
- In the case of considerable fluid resistance, it requires a large amount of force to open and close valves.
- It is not compatible with materials that have high viscosity, easy coking, and large particle size.
- It shows a poor adjustment performance under certain conditions.
However, its disadvantages are very nominal than its benefits. Even these shortcomings can be overcome under strict supervision and regular maintenance.
