Explosion Proof Electric Actuator 3 Way Ball Valve operates with a high level of precision and reliability, even in incredibly harsh industrial environments. This type of valve uses a robust electric actuator, which converts electrical energy into mechanical torque to control the rotation of the valve’s shaft and thereby its fluid flow. The explosion-proof housing contains the actuator and all its components, ensuring that the device doesn’t generate any sparks or heat in the event of an internal malfunction or external flame ignition.
This model features a fire safe design approved according to API 607 4th1993 and an ISO 5211 direct mounting pad for easy automation, allowing it to be used with the industry’s most popular actuators and piping systems. It is available with either a standard two-position or modulating electric actuator with a control signal input of 4 to 20 mA DC or 0-10 VDC and with output torque of 50Nm to 2000Nm.
Designed specifically for quarter-turn operating applications, this model can be used with a variety of other industrial valves such as butterfly valves, plug valves, and dampers. It can also be connected to a pneumatic system and operated with a compressed air supply. The WE series is available as a weather-proof model and the XE series is rated ATEX/IECEx Ex d IIB T4 Gb, making it ideal for use in flammable environments.
This explosion-proof electric actuator is made of corrosion resistant stainless steel and meets the strict requirements for use in flammable and explosive environments. It is driven by a specially designed explosion-proof motor that uses components and cables that are different from those on ordinary equipment to prevent the formation of electric sparks or fires, which would otherwise cause an explosion. It can also be installed in a variety of other control devices.
