In today’s dynamically changing and competitive world, the intensity of technological changes has become the hallmark of industrial, commercial and residential productivity evolution. It is hence vital for components, sub-components and machineries which drive such innovation to be highly efficient and reliable. Valves, Actuators and Positioners is one such market which is critical in almost all industries, from simple applications such as distribution of water to households and industries to complex applications such as drilling and extraction of oil & gas, chemical treatment, power generation and so on. They are vital in enhancing productivity, and are often the final control component in the operation of a variety of equipment.
Table of Contents and Insights:
Valve is a device which is used to control/ regulate and direct the flow of liquid and gases. Actuator is a device which performs a mechanical motion as output by consuming particular form of energy (normally it is electric, pneumatic or hydraulic) as input. An actuator which is used to control the movement of the valve shaft is known as a valve actuator. Positioner is a controller which monitors and controls the movement of system based on signals and pre-defined conditions. In addition to an actuator, a positioner can also be used to control a valve.
