Buy Barber Coleman Actuator

Barber-Colman, still to this day, delivers unsurpassed performance in high-quality, reliable actuators for industrial applications. For over thirty-five years, Barber-Coleman Control Company has been a premier supplier of superior actuators for all sorts of HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) applications. They are a popular source for HVAC products for dealers and distributors worldwide.

Barber Coleman offers a wide variety of actuators like:

  • Pneumatic Actuators

A pneumatic actuator converts energy (in the form of compressed air, typically) into motion. This type of actuator mainly consists of a piston, a cylinder, and valves or ports. Barber Coleman offers a full line pneumatic actuators ranging from 3 in2 to 100 in2 for a wide range of damper and VB-7000 valve applications.

  • Hydraulic actuators

Pneumatic actuators are normally used to control processes requiring quick and accurate response, as they do not require a large amount of motive force. However, when a large amount of force is required to operate a valve (for example, the main steam system valves), hydraulic actuators are normally used. Barber Coleman offers accepting 2-position, floating, and proportional input control signals for both damper and VB-7000 valve applications.

  • Electric Gear Train Actuators

Barber Coleman offers electric actuators ranging from 16 lb.-in. to 1300 lb.-in torque, accepting 2-position, floating, and proportional input control signals, used for damper and valve applications.

Linear Stroke Electric Actuators

Linear stroke electric actuators such as the CE approved MF-63000 series mount directly on the valve body. No linkage is required for valves of 2 inch or smaller size. These are floating control units that stay in position when power is removed. The MF-63123 can be converted to full proportional control with the addition of a plug-in analog input board.

Rotary Stroke Box Style Actuators

Rotary stroke actuators such as the cUL approved EA series box style units are the most common form used for valves. The rotary action is converted to a linear stroke by the linkage kit. Only actuators with a 180° stroke can be used. These actuators must be coupled to a stem-up open valve body. Attempting to use these with stem-up closed valve bodies will result in physical damage.

EA series actuators, the latest actuator series, are renowned for their sturdiness and quality. Designed to thrive in harsh environments, Barber-Colman Co.’s aluminum actuators come in eight different series, all available from HVAC Plus. These series of actuators offer unparalleled benefits including:

  • Potentiometer input
  • Functionality with a wide variety of valves
  • Microprocessor-based control system
  • Adjustable deadband (number of degrees difference between the temperature at which the comes on and that at which the heat comes on)

The standard EA series of actuators contains both gear driven crankshaft and hydraulic powered axial shaft actuators. They may be used with combustion air dampers and a wide variety of low, medium and high torque rotary shaft valve bodies with crankarms. The EA series can accommodate applications requiring position to be held or returned to normal position during power interruptions. Used for two position floating and proportional electric control, these actuators are employed wherever it is desirable to move a load in either direction or to stop it at any point in the stroke. The typical functions of the EA series actuators include:

  • Heat treat furnaces
  • Heat recovery systems
  • Water and oil cooling systems
  • Ovens

Standard EA series includes:

  • EA12
  • EA20
  • EA31
  • EA40
  • EA50 & EA60
  • EA70
  • EA81

As mentioned before, damper actuators are powered devices that are used to operate a damper and adjust the flow of air and smoke. There are two basic types: electric and pneumatic. Electric damper actuators differ in terms of output. Choices include 0 to 12 VDC, 2 to 10 VDC, and 4-20 mA. Products with features such as low-power consumption, direct action, reverse action, and thermal protection are commonly available. Pneumatic damper actuators have a start point that is measured in pounds per square inch (psi). The span is a direct function of a feedback spring. In some products, the spring is designed to provide equal force on both the power and return strokes. General damper actuators and specialized fire and smoke damper actuators are also available. A few parts within this product line are:

When choosing from actuators made by Barber Colman, consumers can pick from electric gear train actuators, hydraulic actuators, pneumatic actuators, linear stroke electric actuators, EA series actuators and rotary stroke box style actuators. The pneumatic actuators convert energy into motion. In most cases, the energy that is converted by a pneumatic actuator is compressed air.

A pneumatic actuator is made of a cylinder, piston, ports and valves. Consumers who want Barber Colman pneumatic actuators can choose from a huge product catalog, and they can also choose actuators for many VB-7000 valve applications. Barber Colman also sells many hydraulic actuators. When a huge amount of force is needed to operate a valve, a hydraulic actuator is needed.

HVAC PLUS carries many electric gear train actuators that can handle anywhere from 16 LBS up to 1,300 LBS of torque. Linear stroke electric actuators are also popular products in the company's EA product catalog. A linear stroke actuator can mount directly onto a valve body. However, rotary stroke box style actuators work better with modern controllers. These actuators are normally used with valves.
