Explosion Proof High Performance Butterfly Valves are designed to handle a wide range of applications. They are commonly used for power generation, oil refineries, water treatment and other industrial processes. High-performance valves are designed with two offset stems that help to reduce contact between the valve disc and seat resulting in longer life in higher pressure and temperature applications. These types of valves are often referred to as double-offset butterfly valves and offer the benefits of reduced torques and increased safety in high-pressure and high-temperature environments.
Explosion proof high performance butterfly valves are available with a choice of actuators including quarter-turn electric and pneumatic actuation. The explosion-proof electric actuators are ATEX rated (Ex d IIB T4 Gb) and provide a visual position indicator, selectable manual override, anti-condensation heater and an emergency stop button. They can be supplied in WE weather-proof or XE explosion-proof versions with standard flanges PN10, PN16 and ANSI 150 or custom flanges if required.
The explosion-proof electric actuators feature an innovative design that includes a fully enclosed motor with high-grade insulation and class F protection. They have low inertia and are built with a powerful, yet lightweight motor that is easy to maintain. They are suitable for a variety of fluid control applications in oil and gas pipelines, mining, shipbuilding and other industries where explosive atmospheres are present. They can be integrated with other automation systems to achieve full process automation and remote monitoring, reducing the risk of dangerous accidents and improving the efficiency and accuracy of industrial production.
