A Guide to Electric Actuated Valves

What are Electric Actuated Valves?

Electric actuated valves are flow control devices that open and close when an electrical signal is sent to the actuator mounted on the valve. Most valves operate by turning a handle 90° or more, to open, close or restrict flow. The electric actuator mimics this movement by mounting a motor and a gear set to the valve stem. The motor turns on when a voltage is applied and the gear set reduce motor speed and increase torque.
