Explosion-Proof Electric Actuators
Designed for the harshest of environments, explosion proof electric actuators ensure that hazardous conditions don’t compromise your process. These units feature flameproof enclosures and conduit seals that protect the motor from sparks or heat during a blast event, ensuring safe operation in areas with flammable gases or vapors. With UL, ATEX and IECEx certifications, these actuators provide safe valve automation in oil/gas, chemical/pharma, and other facilities that handle combustible materials.
Rotary Electric Actuators
The maestros of the actuator world, rotary electric actuators perform rotational movement that often spans 0 to 90 degrees, but can be modified for larger ranges. These actuators can also incorporate built-in fail-safe mechanisms that automatically shift the system to a safe position if something goes awry. This helps to prevent damage and minimize downtime, making rotary electric actuators an ideal solution in environments where safety is paramount.
Linear Electric Actuators
Unlike the rotary electric actuators, linear electric actuators don’t spin—they push. These units utilize a precision worm gear mechanism that transfers power smoothly and efficiently to the valve shaft. This helps to reduce friction and wear on the actuator itself, which in turn helps to extend its lifespan. Additionally, the linear electric actuator can be fitted with a cycle length control module, which can help to improve the actuator’s torque output. This can also be used to limit the amount of travel the actuator can make and is an important feature in situations where safety or space restrictions are a concern. Explosion-Proof Electric Actuators
