Montreal-based Hanbay, a manufacturer of miniature electric valve actuators, has expanded its line of custom electric valve actuators by introducing the new explosion-proof fail-safe actuator on a ¼” ball valve.
This actuator features a spring return fail-safe which closes the valve when its power is lost. The design concept was inspired by the need for quick emergency valve shut off and quick opening afterwards to restore operation.
The actuator is built with a brushless DC motor and is designed to be easily integrated into any process control application and operate without the need to deal with complex pneumatic systems. Its compact size is also advantageous for end-users and/or OEMs looking to maximize efficiency while minimizing space.
