Today, it is the time of automation. Automation has always been an integral part of any development, advancement, or betterment. Automation in a broader term means employing machinery, systems, processes, etc. for improved performances and getting better results. Each and every sector has been automating in the best way it can. The Valve manufacturing Industry is also employing all the tools required for its automation. Industrial valves are getting automated using actuators. These actuators could be Electrical (motorized), Pneumatic, or Hydraulic. Using these actuators, actuated valves such as actuated butterfly valves, actuated ball valves, or actuated Gate, Globe valves can be manufactured.

The advantages of Actuated Valves are as follows:

  • Saves time and labor as compared to manual operations.

  • Actuation provides great precision in controlling the flow.
  • Automation decreases the risk of human error and hence overall operation cost.
  • Flow output control is done in a much-improved way where flow is supervised using a dedicated system.
  • Actuators also enable setting safer operating limits which are of utmost need while working with any critical applications or hazardous conditions like
    • Hazardous Zone 0, Zone 1 & Zone 2.
    • For Gas & Dust Classification: IIA, IIB, IIC & IID.
    • Temperature-wise classification: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 & T6.

Therefore Actuators are also classified based on their enclosures like Weatherproof, Explosion-proof, Flameproof, etc.

  • Battery backup is also available in such valves making them operate even during a power failure or until the power is restored, they can end the current process most safely.
  • Security and safety of the valve operator can also be ensured because the actuators work evenly during extreme conditions while preventing accidents or any harmful consequences.
  • Remote access is a prime advantage where the valves are difficult to be reached to shut off manually.

Oskar Industries being one of the leading valve manufacturers in India offers a wide range of actuated valves. OSKO valves manufacture electrically actuated (motorized) and pneumatically actuated valves.

Below mentioned are the best quality, ISI-marked actuated valves/control valves, perfectly suited to cater to all of the flow control needs.

  • Electrically Actuated Butterfly Valves (Motorized Butterfly Valves)
  • Pneumatically Actuated Butterfly Valves
  • Double Acting Pneumatically Operated Butterfly Valves
