Bonomi introduces new compact quarter-turn actuators
Bonomi North America, a valve solutions distributor, has launched the new Valbia VB008 Mini quarter-turn direct-mount electric actuator.
The actuator measures 4¾” x 2¾” and used with 1/4” to 1¼” full-port direct mount ball valves, it provides compact and reliable automatic flow control for a wide range of light industrial, OEM, and HVAC applications.
The VB008 Mini features an F-03/05 pattern ISO-5211 direct-mount flange and square shaft slot for easy direct-mount installation.
The standard 110VAC motor with Class II insulation meets CE standards and delivers 71in/lbs of torque in horizontal or vertical installations.
A manual override, heater/thermostat, and LED indicator light are included in the actuator as standard.
The waterproof IP 65 housing of the VB008 is constructed of flame-resistant plastic with O-ring seals at critical points.
Options include 24VAC operation and three-point or modulating control.
The new actuators are available as separate components or on single-number automated valve packages with Bonomi ball valves.
They can be used in leak detection and prevention systems, food and beverage processing, water treatment, irrigation, fire protection, smart home systems, and other commercial or light industrial applications.
In some situations, the actuators can offer a low-cost alternative to solenoid valves, Bonomi says.
