Specification for the right actuated ball valve is not difficult, but if specified incorrectly can have far reaching effects on your process system. There are many process requirements to consider, is the valve the correct size for the required flow rates and key with all actuated ball valves, and is the actuator correctly sized for flow, pressure and temperature. Incorrect torque values can cause serious stress on the valve stem resulting in valve failure and downtime that businesses can ill afford in these times of austerity. For more information and help with specification please read on and contact our technical sales department.
