Frequently Asked Questions

An electric actuated ball valve is a valve that uses an electric motor to control the flow of a fluid. This type of valve is often used in industrial and commercial applications for precise control and automation of fluid flow.
Electric actuated ball valves use an electric motor to rotate the ball inside the valve. The ball has a bore through it; when the bore is aligned with the flow, the valve is open, and when it's perpendicular, the valve is closed. This allows for efficient control of fluid flow.
The benefits include precise flow control, high reliability, reduced need for manual intervention, compatibility with automated systems, and suitability for a wide range of industrial applications.
Yes, many electric actuated ball valves are designed for both indoor and outdoor applications. They often have robust construction and weatherproof features to withstand various environmental conditions.
These valves can control a variety of fluids, including water, air, gases, and chemicals, making them versatile for different industrial uses.
Yes, they are generally energy-efficient as the electric actuator only consumes power when changing the valve position, unlike pneumatic or hydraulic actuators which may require continuous energy supply.
Selection depends on several factors, including the type of fluid, pressure, temperature, flow rate requirements, and environmental conditions. Consulting with a valve expert or manufacturer is advisable for precise selection.
Absolutely, these valves can be integrated with various control systems using standard protocols, allowing for seamless operation within existing automated setups.
Maintenance typically involves regular inspections, cleaning, and occasional lubrication. The electric actuator may also need checks to ensure electrical connections and motor functionality are intact.
The lifespan varies based on usage and environmental conditions but generally, these valves have a long service life due to their robust construction and minimal wear parts.
While they are primarily designed for industrial and commercial applications, there are models suitable for residential use, especially in sophisticated home automation systems or for specific needs like irrigation.

Fail-Safe Battery Backup
