About Hydraulic Valve Actuators
Hydraulic actuators use a pressurized fluid to control valve movement. The hydraulic fluid used is either water or oil and is fed to either one or both sides of a piston to cause movement. Hydraulic valves provide for automatic and semi-automatic valve operation.
The advantages of hydraulic actuators include:
- More powerful than a pneumatic actuator of the same size
- Precise control of valve position
- Capable of converting a small input pressure into a large output pressure
- Incompressibility of the fluid, which means very little energy is lost during operation
Hydraulic actuators are often used to operate the main stop and control valves for high-pressure steam turbine piping. The actuator’s ability to operate the valve against the high-pressure steam, as well as the ability to quickly shut the valve on the loss of control oil, makes hydraulic actuators well suited for this task.
ValvACT is the only U.S. distributor of the HyRAV Series Hydraulic Valve Actuator.
