Valve actuators mount on valves and move valves to a desired position by utilizing liquid, electric or some other power source. Selecting the correct valve actuator will increase performance, uptime, reliability, and safety while reducing maintenance costs. Although the most common and important use of an valve actuator is to open and close valves, current actuator designs go far beyond the basic open and close function. The valve actuator can be packaged together with position sensing equipment, torque sensing, motor protection, logic control and digital communication capacity all in a compact, protected enclosure. Applications include: power plants, oil and gas, industrial, ships and chemical industries. Below is a listing of valve actuators available from IC-Fluid Power.
