Explosion Proof Electric Actuator 3 Way Ball Valve
When you have a flammable or explosive atmosphere at your facility, it’s crucial to choose the right valve actuator and power source. There are many things to consider such as the power requirements for your application, failsafes and environmental conditions. There are also regulatory and support considerations to take into account.
Choosing a pneumatic or electric actuator for your valve application is based on many factors including the type of application, power supply, temperature ratings, environment and regulatory and support requirements. Pneumatic actuators require access to pressurized air to operate, while electric actuators use a DC voltage signal for operation. This article will explore the advantages and disadvantages of each option to help you make the best choice for your specific application.
COVNA offers explosion-proof electric actuators in a variety of sizes, styles and models. We offer both WE Series (weather-proof) and XE Series (explosion-proof) electric actuators for quarter-turn operating applications such as ball valves, butterfly valves, plug valves, dampers and other similar devices. These actuators are ideal for automating your equipment to minimize labor costs, increase production efficiency and reduce environmental risks. They can be controlled remotely, have position indication and manual operation for maximum safety and are IP68 rated. These features provide maximum safety and peace of mind in any hazardous work environment. They also meet the requirements for most ISO 5211 flanged connections, so they can easily be connected to other standard actuators on the market. Explosion Proof Electric Actuators On/Off
