Valve Series Offers Modularity and Control

May 13, 2010
The electrically actuated ball valve is adaptable to a variety of conditions and applications and is available in PVC, CPVC, Polypropylene, and PVDF. With the optional flow control positioner, it goes from being a simple on/off valve to a precision flow control device, integrated into systems controlled by PLCs and other computerized instrumentation. Available in sizes 3/8 – 4-inch, the valve is ideal for throttling flow and can take a 4-20mA or voltage signal. Designed to be modular, other control options include a smart module for cycle monitoring, cycle counter, cycle extension, and motor current monitoring; limit switches, position feedback, and RS2 32 configuration tool. Further flexibility is provided with available pneumatic positioners. Other important features include: 110-230VAC auto-detecting or 24V AD/DC; manual override on actuator; PTFE seats; EPDM or FPM seals; UL certified; and NSF approval.
