How To Choose The Right Valve Electric Device

1. Operating torque: Operating torque is the most important parameter for selecting the valve's electric device. The output torque of the electric device should be 1.2 to 1.5 times the maximum torque of the valve operation.

2. Operational thrust: There are two kinds of main structure of the valve electric device. One is that the thrust plate is not arranged, and the torque is directly output. The other is the configuration with the thrust plate. At this time, the output torque passes through the stem nut in the thrust plate. Convert to output thrust.

3. Number of rotations of the output shaft: The number of rotations of the output shaft of the valve electric device is related to the nominal diameter of the valve, the pitch of the valve stem, and the number of threads. It is calculated according to M=H/ZS (where: M is the electric device should be satisfied) The total number of revolutions; H is the opening height of the valve, mm; S is the pitch of the stem drive thread, mm; Z is the number of stem threads.)

4. Stem diameter: For multi-turn type open-end valves, if the maximum stem diameter allowed by the electric device cannot pass through the valve stem of the valve, it cannot be assembled into an electric valve. Therefore, the inner diameter of the hollow shaft of the electric device must be larger than the outer diameter of the stem of the open rod valve. For the partial rotary valve and the dark rod valve in the multi-turn valve, although the problem of the diameter of the stem is not considered, the diameter of the stem and the size of the keyway should be fully considered in the selection, so that the assembly can work normally.

5. Output speed: The opening and closing speed of the valve is fast, which is easy to produce water hammer. Therefore, the appropriate opening and closing speed should be selected according to different conditions of use.

6. Installation and connection method: The installation method of the electric device is vertical installation, horizontal installation and floor installation; the connection method is:


There is a thrust disc; the valve stem passes (bright multi-turn valve); the dark rod rotates more; there is no thrust disc; the valve stem does not pass;

The valve electric device has a wide range of uses and is an indispensable device for realizing valve program control, self-control and remote control, and is mainly used on closed-circuit valves. However, the special requirements of the valve electric device cannot be ignored - the torque or axial force must be limited. Usually the valve electric device uses a torque limiting coupling.
