We'll Put It Together: Electropneumatic Custom Valves

A little bit of custom work can make a big difference getting components in place
Our Custom Solutions department can build actuator assemblies like the one pictured above to save you the need for in field assembly, find out more about our Custom Solutions capabilities below.
When we talk about Custom Solutions, it may sound like a process for creating complex systems of components. While we are glad to take on big projects, Custom Solutions can also mean taking care of some simple modifications here at Edmonton Valve & Fitting so that you don't have to do the work at your site.
Take a basic component such as our 40 Series one-piece instrumentation ball valve, or our 60 Series three-piece ball valve. The standard configuration comes with a nylon handle, but we also can supply you with pneumatic actuators for those applications when you don't want to (or can't) turn the valves off and on by hand.
There's yet another option by adding customer specified three-way solenoid valves to the actuator to create an electropneumatically actuated assembly. In operation, an electrical signal goes to the solenoid to switch on (or off) the air supply to the actuator.
Ready to use
What Custom Solutions means in this case is that we install the solenoid on the actuator, and deliver the finished assembly to you. All you have to do is tell us the specifics of what you need. Are you running 120 volt AC, or 24 volts DC? In an emergency, do you want the valves to default to an open or closed position? You may want a fail-closed configuration to shut down operations, but you might have a critical line that needs to stay open. We'll also ask you how much air pressure is available.
To start the conversation, all it takes is a note through our website or a quick call to call to 780.437.0640.
