Adams - Ball Valve Actuators
Ball valve actuators are an effective way of controlling the flow of liquids and gases from a remote location using pneumatic or electrical power. This eliminates the need for an operator to manually open or close the flow of a particular fluid reducing safety concerns and increases productivity. Ball valve actuators are powered pneumatically with a single or dual rack and pinion or driven with an electrical motor. Standard options include manual overrides, position indication, and fail safe spring open or close in event of energy loss.
- Ball valves are highly durable and can achieve perfect shutoff even after years of use
- They are extremely versatile and can support pressures up to 1000 bar and temperatures up to 482 Fahrenheit.
- May be used in throttling applications although their design is not as well suited for fine flow control
- Wide array of materials of construction including composite, brass, aluminum, stainless steel, and many different coatings for corrosion resistance
Ball valve actuators are available in a variety of configurations, materials, and designs to automate any manual ball valve application.
