Automated ball valve series available with pneumatic or electric actuators

March 9, 2009
The new series incorporates a full port design for maximum flow rates with minimal pressure drop. The ANSI 150# flange comes in a variety of connection sizes to suit many applications. The series is perfect for mixing in a variety of applications including food and chemical processing industries. These ball valves feature a blow out proof stem and reinforced RTFE seats and seals for added safety, longer life and leak free operation. The automated ball valve comes with a choice of either pneumatic or electric actuators. Two pneumatic actuators are available. The double acting pneumatic actuator uses an air supply to drive each of the actuator port while the spring return pneumatic actuators use an air supply to drive the valve stem in one direction and an internally loaded spring to return to the valve to its original position. These actuators are constructed of anodized aluminum and are epoxy coated for years of service. The electrically actuated models have NEMA 4 enclosures with an optional explosive-proof, NEMA 7, enclosure. The electric actuators are available in either two position or proportional control with a standard 115 VAC supply.
