The electric actuator is a cost-effective method for automating any industrial process, efficiently. The wide range of options, materials and configurations enable the valve to be controlled by a button and monitored in real time. 

The electric actuator eliminates the need for an operator to stand near the valves and operate them manually.The operator can now control the movement of the valve remotely, from the control room.


The electric actuator can be mounted on the following valves

  • Gate valve
  • Globe valve
  • Plug valve
  • Ball valve
  • Butterfly valve

There are two types of electric actuators based on its functionality. The linear actuator and rotary actuator. The linear actuator can actuate the linear valves and the rotary actuator actuates the rotary valves. An electric actuator has a motor and gear system, which powers the rotating shaft. 

The following accessories and features enhance the functions of an electric actuator

Feature Benefit
Feedback The operator is informed when the valve is open or closed.
Positioning cord The positioning cord controls the valve using a 4-20mA signal and sends the signal back to the control room.
Switches Switches protect the motor from burning out at the end of the stroke due to continuous use.
Simple switch mechanism The mechanism makes it easy to open and close the valve.
Power 110VAC, 240VAC, 24VDC or 24VAC
Battery back-up or spring return feature The feature ensures a fail-safe operation.
Enclosure The enclosure meets ATEX requirements.
