6 Test methods
6.1 Shell test
Carry out in accordance with the provisions of GB/T 13927.
6.2 No-load operation test
The drive is mounted directly on the valve. Use the designed drive device to open and close the butterfly valve three times from fully closed to fully open to fully closed again. Check whether the butterfly valve is operating normally.
6.3 Sealing test
Carry out in accordance with the provisions of GB/T 13927.
6.4 Pressure bearing capacity test of butterfly plate
Close the inlet end of the butterfly valve. Place the butterfly valve horizontally with the outlet facing upward. Fill the bottom of the butterfly valve sealing surface with water. Close the butterfly valve. Apply water pressure from the inlet end to 1.5 times the maximum allowable operating pressure difference. The continuous test pressure time shall not be less than 10 min. Then, observe the condition of the butterfly plate. NOTE: Under the test pressure of this project, if the sealing surface leaks, it will not be used as a basis for judging the sealing test to be unqualified.
6.5 Measurement of shell wall thickness
Use a thickness gauge or special caliper to measure the wall thickness of the valve body flow channel and valve stem shaft.
6.6 Measurement of valve stem hardness
Use a hardness tester to measure at both ends of the valve stem. Take the average of three measurement points for each measurement.
6.7 Analysis of material composition
Take a sample from the body of the valve body. Drill cutting sampling shall be carried out at 6.5 mm below the surface.
6.8 Mechanical properties of valve body material
Use test rods with the same furnace number and batch of heat treatment as the valve body to perform the test according to the method specified in GB/T 228.
