Explosion Proof Electric Actuator
An explosion-proof electric actuator is an excellent choice for hazardous environments. These actuators are designed for use with industrial valves in oil/gas, chemical, power plant and other projects where flammable gases or vapors may be present. They are ATEX and IECEx certified to ensure safe valve automation in explosive gas environments. Explosion proof electric actuators are easy to install and can be used with any quarter turn ball valve, butterfly valve or damper.
Electric actuators reset to a fail-safe position in the event of power loss, which reduces equipment damage and safety hazards. They’re an ideal replacement for hydraulics in oil/gas, chemical and other facilities that handle combustible vapors and gases.
Different types of electric actuators offer various functions to meet your specific needs. Choose from linear electric actuators, rotary electric actuators and multi-turn servo actuators. Linear electric actuators convert electrical energy into straight motion, while multi-turn servo actuators provide a range of rotational movement, often spanning more than 90 degrees. The Einsteins of the actuator world, rotary electric actuators are able to rotate multiple times for precise positioning.
For dangerous situations, opt for an explosion proof actuator with a dual-seal shaft design to prevent sparks from igniting hazardous atmospheres. With a large torque output and precision double worm gear mechanism, this type of actuator can deliver high performance and reliability. These models are also ATEX and IECEx compliant, making them an excellent choice for use in Zone 2 environments. Explosion Proof Electric Actuator 3 Way Ball Valve
