Actuators for valves

With the actuators, the actuation of the valves is automatic.

Ideal in industrial applications and in various process systems, actuators are devices that operate the valves remotely, without the intervention of a direct operator. The energy source that operates the valve can be electric (mains or battery) or pneumatic (compressed air).

The movement that is transmitted can result in a rotary or linear movement of the shutter. In the rotary movement, a quarter of a turn is enough to operate the valve and this is the case with ball and butterfly valves; in linear movement, on the other hand, the shutter is raised and lowered, as happens in gate and globe valves.
