We are also experts in retrofitting / automating the existing manually operated valves.
We retrofit any type of valve with electric or pneumatic actuator, be it a gate valve or globe valve or sluice valve or ball valve or a butterfly valve… We have tailor-made solution for everything.

  • Study the site after receipt of invitation / enquiry from client
  • Decide scope of work (e.g. cables, control panels, PLCs) & actuator specifications / operation logic in consultation with client
  • Submit budgetary offer
  • Detailed engineering after receipt of order such as sizing & selection of appropriate actuator models, design of mounting arrangement & control system, cable laying map, labour work-force organizing etc.
  • Supply of actuator & other accessories as per the scope of supply
  • Installation & commissioning of total automation system
  • Final testing & trial to the satisfaction of client
  • You save your money / investment on buying a new valve (with actuator)
  • No need to modify the existing pipeline
  • If the present valve operation is manual, you save on man-power cost
  • You can take the advantage of the latest available technology in actuation
  • You can integrate various valves & operate them thru’ a common control system

ACTUATOR TERMS

Pneumatic Actuator An air-operated mechanical device used to open and close or modulate a valve. The actuator, which is mounted to the valve by a bracket and coupled to the stem, is designed to convert air pressure into mechanical force sufficient to operate the valve.

Double-Acting Pneumatic Actuator Any pneumatic actuator which uses air to drive the actuator output shaft in both the open and close direction. The air supply is piped to one side of a piston drive or a diaphragm while the air contained on the opposing side is exhausted.

Spring-Return Pneumatic Actuator Any pneumatic actuator which contains a single coil spring or group of coil springs to oppose the movement of a piston or diaphragm. As air moves the piston or diaphragm the spring is compressed. When the air supply is discontinued and exhausted, the spring extends and drives the piston or diaphragm in the opposite direction. This type of actuator is normally used for applications where it is necessary for the valve to move to the open or close position upon loss of air supply, whether by design or by system failure.

Fail-Open A spring return pneumatic actuator is applied to the valve such that the spring will drive the valve to the open position upon loss of air (may be termed “air-to-close”).

Fail-Closed A spring return pneumatic actuator is applied to the valve such that the spring will drive the valve to the close position upon loss of air (may be termed “air-to-open”).

Electric Actuator An electro-mechanical device used to open, close or modulate a valve. The actuator operates the valve using an electric motor driving a gear train. While the basic function of the electric actuator is similar to the pneumatic, there are distinct differences in the application and flexibility of the two types, and these differences should be considered to select the proper type.

Electric Fail Safe Actuator Electrically driven actuator that contains an internal spring to close the valve on loss of electricity.
