2 Piece Wras Approved Actreg Actuated Valves

The Actreg Pneumatic Actuator is manufactured according to ISO 5211 standards with a star drive that provides extra flexibility and simplicity for direct mounting to valve spindles or output shafts. This makes it easy to convert electric system to pneumatic if required. The bi-directional travel stops allow easy setting of the valve stroke which prevents premature valve failures. Our Pneumatic Actuators can be used with other common ancillary components such as solenoid valves, position switches, gauges and pressure regulators. Easily integrated into existing systems using industry standard NAMUR mountings (VDE/VDI 3845). This standardisation allow users to integrate the unit with future upgrades or replacements without having to redesign entire systems.

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.

4-20mA Control Available On This Product

The BLX V100E Series is an Electro-Pneumatic control unit that allows the Actuator to incrementally adjust the Valve's position between the fully open and closed cycle. Product variants are available for spring return and double acting setups with feedback and safety settings. Ask our team today about how the V100E can help with your process requirements.
