What is an Electric Actuated 3 Way Ball Valve?
The electric actuated 3-way ball valve is a type of valve that controls the fluid flow in the piping system. It consists of a ball with a hole in the middle, rotatably mounted on a valve body. The ball can be rotated to different positions to allow or block the flow of fluid through the valve. When the orifice is aligned with the valve’s inlet and outlet ports, fluid can flow through the valve. When the hole is perpendicular to the inlet and outlet ports, fluid flow is blocked.
How Does an Electric Actuated 3 Way Ball Valve Work?
The electric actuated 3-way ball valve has three ports: an inlet port, an outlet port and an auxiliary port. The inlet port is where fluid enters the valve, the outlet port is where fluid exits the valve, and the auxiliary port can be used to bypass or divert fluid flow. The valve is operated by an electric actuator, which is a device that uses electricity to move a mechanism or control a process. The electric actuator is connected to the ball inside the valve and is used to rotate the ball to the desired position.
Electric actuated 3-way ball valves are widely used in a variety of applications including HVAC systems, process control systems and fluid handling systems. They are preferred over manual valves as they can be remotely controlled and automated as part of a larger control system. They are also more reliable and require less maintenance than manual valves.
