Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / in butterfly valves
|English term or phrase: rod|
A butterfly valve, similar to a ball valve, allows various levels of fluid flow through a designated pipeline. A flat circular plate with a rod through the center is placed within the pipe to regulate flow.
Ist das ein Kolben, von dem hier gesprochen wird, oder wie nennt man dieses Ding auf Deutsch?
While "Stange" certainly designates a rod, I always think of a rod either connecting two parts or pushing, as in a piston-rod, but not swivelling, as the pin (as I would call it), or swivel-pin in a butterfly valve does. That's why I offer "Stift".
