Key Features

The electric actuators in the Valpes VR Range boast a sturdy aluminium housing. This material provides excellent strength and resistance to environmental factors, ensuring the longevity and reliability of the actuators in various operating conditions.

Key Features

The inclusion of a manual override feature through an external shaft adds a practical dimension to the actuators. This feature allows for manual operation in situations such as power outages or during maintenance, providing a fail-safe mechanism and enhancing operational flexibility.

Wras Approved Actuated Ball Valves

WRAS approval is a mandatory requirement for any product that carries or receives drinking water from the public mains in the UK. It provides proof that our products have been tested by an independent body to ensure they meet all relevant standards and requirements as set out by Government. The AV4500 is a Wras Approved Ball Valve suitable for use drinking water.

Frequent Interrogation

WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approval means the valves meet regulatory standards for use in potable water systems in the UK. WRAS tests for materials, construction and performance.

Common materials are dezincification resistant brass or stainless steel. WRAS has requirements for leachable lead and other substances that could contaminate drinking water.

2-piece valves have the body and ball as one part, with the stem as the second part. This makes them more compact but non-serviceable. 3-piece valves can be disassembled for servicing.

Typical end connections are copper tube connectors, compression fittings and push-fit connectors. Threaded BSP or NPT connections are also sometimes used.

Common handles are cross type lever handles, tee handles and round knobs. Locking handles are also available to prevent tampering. Extended handles allow ease of operation in tight spaces.

Most 2-piece WRAS approved valves have pressure ratings of up to 400 psi (27 bar) and temperatures up to 230°F (110°C), with some high pressure models rated beyond this. Always confirm ratings for your application.

Many have full or near full-port openings to minimise flow restriction. Actual flow depends on valve size - 1/2” to 2" are common sizes for plumbing uses.

Typical applications are water supply lines, sinks, toilets, water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers and other household water control.

No special maintenance is required, just periodic inspection for leaks and smooth operation. Replacement is needed if a valve fails.

Most come with manufacturer warranties from 3-10 years depending on materials and brand. Some offer extended warranties against leaking.

Actuated Valve Testing & Calibration

All actuated valve assemblies are fully tested and calibrated in house prior to packing and shipping from our expert team of technical engineers. This means that when they arrive at site, you're immediately ready to install and get your production back up and running.
