Advantages of electric valves over traditional valves

2023-01-03 14:09

In terms of operational efficiency and energy savings, the use of automatic control valves is an indispensable part of the process. The manual and pneumatic valves traditionally used in industry are not as cost effective as electric valves in terms of installation and efficiency.

As far as the product itself is concerned, electric valves are the more cost effective choice as they are easy to assemble, have a low failure rate and meet the automation needs of the industry. Because the use of traditional pneumatic valves requires piping, solenoid valves and compressors to match, while electric valves are motor-driven and easy to install, and they can be installed in conjunction with the factory's existing automatic control circuit, saving other costs. In addition, the motor-driven way to open and close more smoothly, no instantaneous impulse too much shortcomings, the failure rate can be significantly reduced.

Industry sources said that the valves are mostly used to control the flow of various fluids, such as water, oil, chemical liquids and so on, based on parameters such as temperature, pressure and flow. The control valves commonly used in factories are pressure reducing valves, pneumatic type fixed temperature valves, solenoid valve fixed temperature systems, proportional control valves fixed temperature systems, temperature control valves and several other types. When choosing various types of automatic valves, the type of heat engine, the required accuracy, the quality of the control valve, pressure drop, flow rate and its construction, failure rate, manufacturer's credit and after-sales service should be considered in order to achieve economic and practical purposes.

Many people believe that electric valves are expensive and costly to use, but in fact, if calculated as a whole, traditional valves have to be added to many accessories and pipeline installation, the price does not take advantage, but to bear more maintenance costs.
