)-- Hanbay has expanded its line of custom electric valve actuators by introducing the new explosion-proof fail-safe actuator on a ¼” ball valve. This light and compact actuator features a spring return fail-safe which closes the valve when its power is lost. The fail-safe actuator was built for Swagelok’s 83 series instrumentation ball valve, which has a pressure rating up to 10,000 psi. The design concept was inspired by the need for quick emergency valve shut off and quick opening afterwards to restore operation.
This 24 VDC powered actuator is built with a brushless DC motor. It easily integrates into any process control application and operates without the need to deal with finicky pneumatic systems. Its compact size is also advantageous for end-users and/or OEMS looking to maximize efficiency while minimizing space.
“Developing this product was a direct result of working with our client to make their process control safer and more efficient,” said Harley Peters, Product Manager at Hanbay. “This new device with an embedded spring return fail-safe is a testament to Hanbay’s engineering team and its ability to design custom actuators for any unique valve application.”
Established in 1986, Hanbay is a manufacturer of miniature electric valve actuators that can be customized for any application, in any industry. Hanbay’s electric valve actuators provide precise positioning, with the highest torque, resulting in accurate flow control. Our expertise is in manufacturing compact actuators capable of micro-positioning on instrumentation valves.
