Ball Valve

Hayward Flow Control Systems (Clemmons, NC, has announced a line of compact ball valves for a wide range of heavy duty chemical, water, and wastewater applications. The QVC and QTA series ball valves feature a rugged, all-plastic design usually found on higher cost ball valves, socket or threaded pipe connectors, Santoprene (TPV) seats, full porting, and a 150 PSI pressure rating. QVC Series valves are available in 1/2 to 4in. sizes in gray or white PVC, QTA Series valves are available in 1/2 to 2in. sizes in gray or white PVC, and include socket and threaded True Union end connections. The valves provide easy quarter-turn operation and are designed to fit into spaces too small for other valves.

Servo Drives

The SV Series servo drives from Applied Motion Products (Watsonville, CA) are compact 5.0 × 3.0 × 1.75in. programmable OEM servo drives designed to make servo systems an option in applications that could benefit from their performance attributes, but have historically used stepper systems due to cost factors. The drives are available with three flexible control options, and are protected against over and under voltage, over-temperature, motor shorts and motor open phase. They deliver up to 7.0A rms continuous or 14.0A rms peak output current from a 24-80 VDC power supply.

Linear Actuator

The QLZE / QSZE / QST-KE) modular linear actuator from Nook Industries (Cleveland, OH) has a stainless steel cover band that wraps over the square aluminum profiles – creating an optimal solution to combat caustic wash-down issues. The stainless steel housing also protects the aluminum profile from exposure to damage due to clogging and pitting; thus protecting the deep structures of the extrusion and extending the system’s life. In addition, the stainless steel design requires no bellows to cover the extrusion which typically wears out over time. The actuator is suited for pharmaceutical/medical, clean room, food/beverage, packaging and petrochemical applications.
