Buy valve actuator hydraulic

A Valve actuator hydraulic has solved an expensive and repetitive valve operating problem. The valve - an Edward Class 2500 14 x 12 x 14in high-pressure no return globe control valve on boiler feed water pump discharge service - was motorized with an obsolete electrical actuator that was no longer supported by its manufacturer. The actuator arm was regularly causing self-inflicted damage to its drive bush and gearbox when the valve was operated, forcing the station to repair it on an annual basis. 3 actuator electrical valves way usually offer lower pricing than electric actuators plus the ability to easily return to a normally closed (or open) position in the event of a system or power failure. The cycle time for the actuator ball electro mechanical valve to actuate is under a second compared to an electric valve cycle time of 5 to 10 seconds. Air pressure, when actuated, pushed against a piston with the force transferred to a rotating force turning the ball within the valve - the rotation is normally 90 degrees. The ability to continuously adjust the valve opening position in a process control system is not possible when using pneumatic actuators. For fail safe operation, the air piston works against a spring that will return the valve to the original position when air pressure is released. A three way air pilot valve is required to control the operation. The actuator can be made in a double acting (or air x air) mode that will require air pressure to open and close the valve. A spring return is not used in this case. A four way air pilot valve is required to control the operation. Electric actuators offer the advantage of operation with using electricity only. An electric motor within the actuator is gear driven to rotate the ball within the valve. Rotation of the actuator can be 90 degrees reversing, 180 degree reversing (for three way valves) or one direction with stops at 90 degree positions. Two electrical circuits are required - one for opening and one for closing. The valve will not return to a safety position in the event of a power failure without the use of a secondary battery power supply system. pool valve actuator can easily provide signal relays that advise the position of the valve for control systems. The GF "EA" Series actuator offers options to control the position of the valve or the cycle time. In addition to 110VAC power supplies, actuators are available for 12 or 24volt AC or DC power.


The Edward Class 2500, an 14-inch by 12-inch valve, has been hailed as solving an expensive problem in maintaining certain HVAC installations. Used as a high-pressure, no-return flow control valve, this valve can be used in boiler-fed water pump discharge systems. Able to withstand the repetition that comes with operating in these environments, the Edward Class 2500 should be a top consideration for those who need a new valve for their installation, and those looking to buy valve actuator hydraulic components will want to consider it.

Like most modern valves, the Edward Class 2500 features fail-safe operation. Since the air piston pushes against a spring that returns to its original position when pressure is released, the likelihood of failure is exceedingly low. In addition, a three-way air pilot valve is incorporated as well to ensure that this operation is handled correctly. Despite incorporating these safety features, the ball electro mechanical valve operates in under a second; comparable valves often take five or 10 seconds to complete the same task.

There are a number of benefits to using electronic valves in modern HVAC installations. While they are bit more expensive up front, they tend to last for much longer periods of time. This durability makes them far easier to maintain, and HVAC operators will not need to spend too much time performing routine maintenance. In addition, electronic controls can greatly simplify the process of running the entire HVAC installation, and using electronic components can lower total operating costs significantly. Modern electronics are hardened, and there is no reason to expect that they will degrade over time.

That said, HVAC operators will need to continue to keep up with mechanical systems. Mechanical installation still dominate in the HVAC industry, and it will be decades before mechanical systems are entirely replaced by electrical systems. As all HVAC experts know, owners are reluctant to upgrade until it is absolutely needed; knowing how to manage legacy systems will be important to continue finding work in the HVAC industry.

At HVAC Plus, we understand the importance of using the best equipment for the job. We also know that HVAC operators sometimes have to settle for uncommon brands and less-popular products. For this reason, we ensure that we keep up with the latest HVAC developments while also maintaining a large stock of legacy parts.

We also understand that choosing the right part can be a bit difficult, so our knowledgeable operators can help you determine the right part for your installation. Give us a call or send us an email to let us help you choose the right product for your needs. You can also contact us through our online chat interface, and we offer overnight shipping to those who need their products as soon as possible.
