Explosion Proof Actuators
Explosion Proof Actuators are designed for use in hazardous environments. These explosion proof electric actuators are ATEX and SIL3 certified to meet the needs of your application.
Explosive atmospheres can be found in many settings, from granaries and flour mills to pharmaceutical and gas processing sites. Often these environments are filled with flammable gases and can also be inundated with combustible dusts. Despite the hazards, these environments are not without their uses and it’s important to make sure the right equipment is used in these areas.
The most common types of actuators are electrical explosion proof actuators, however there are other options including pneumatic explosion proof actuators and mechanical explosion proof actuators. Explosion proof devices have complex designs that prevent sparks from igniting combustible compounds outside of the device. They are designed to contain an internal explosion and keep the explosive material from spreading outwards. These devices can be constructed from metals or non-metallic, non-sparking materials.
Electrical explosion proof actuators work by converting electricity into linear motion for control of industrial valves and dampers. They are capable of opening and closing these devices as well as regulating a flow more or less intensively depending on the need.
Rotary electric actuators are the James Bond of actuators, they are the straight shooters of the actuation world that offer rotary movement and control. They are perfect for applications that require rotational movement, spanning from 0 to 360 degrees. Servo electric actuators are the Einsteins of the actuation world, they convert electrical energy into precision rotary movements. Explosion Proof Ball Valve with Positioner
