July 29, 2014 - To ensure operation during power failure, Safe & Secure series features battery backup system sized to fit inside actuator enclosure. Built-in power supply is field adjustable with fail closed, fail open, or operational (open-close) modes. Supplied in NEMA 4, 4X, or 7 enclosures, actuators have output torque range of 400–1,500 lb-in. Supply voltages include 120 Vac, 220 Vac, 24 Vdc, and 12 Vdc, and available options include positioners, speed controls, timers, and position transmitters.

New Electric Actuators for Critical Applications

Press release date: July 28, 2014

BI-TORQ© Valve Automation has added an electric actuator to its automated lineup. The new Safe & Secure series was designed as a cost-effective solution for critical applications.

Previous solutions to ensuring actuator operation during power failure included costly spring return actuators that only failed back to a default position or bulky battery back-up systems that required separate enclosures and extra wiring. The Safe & Secure series eliminates all that with its standout feature, a compact battery backup system that is small enough to fit inside the actuator enclosure. The built-in power supply is field adjustable with fail closed, fail open or operational (open-close) modes, making it a perfect fit for your critical automation needs.

The actuators have an output torque range of 400 through 1500 inch pounds and are available in NEMA 4, 4X, or 7 enclosures. Supply voltages include 120VAC, 220VAC, 24VDC, and 12VDC. Options include positioners, speed controls, timers, and position transmitters.

While the actuators are available as a BI-TORQ® Valve Automation valve package, and are ideally suited for our fire safe or sanitary valve series, the actuators are also available as retrofit packages with a Carbo-Bond mounting kit. The custom kits allow the actuators to be easily adapted to just about any existing valve in the field.

BI-TORQ® Valve Automation, now in its 20th year, started with a single line of pneumatic rack and pinion actuators. The company has grown tremendously since then and now offers a full line of automated ball and butterfly valve packages, actuators and valves for retrofits, as well as, a suite of safety products including fire safe fusible link assemblies, spring return handles, and fusible plugs. BI-TORQ® Valve Automation’s parent company, AVK Carbo-Bond, is a family-owned business specializing in valve mounting kits, stem extensions, lock-out kits, and customized solutions such as butterfly valve tee linkages and tandem mounting kits.
