New Dwyer sanitary ball valves

Dwyer Instruments, Inc., the preferred source for your complete range of practical and affordable instrumentation, is announcing the release of its NEW SERIES BV3-3A SANITARY THREE-PIECE BALL VALVE. 

The W.E. Anderson Series BV3-3A ball valves meet 3A sanitary standards and feature sanitary connection ends for easy line removal.  This three-piece sanitary ball valve is ideal for use in food, beverage, semi-conductor, or pharmaceutical applications.  The cavity filled and full bore designs aid to reduce product entrapment, and provide consistent flow characteristics.

The BV3-3A Series is an economical automated valve packaged with either an electric or pneumatic actuator.  Electrically actuated models have a standard weatherproof, NEMA 4 enclosure, powered by a 115 VAC supply, and are available in either two-position or proportional control.  The two position actuators use the 115 VAC input to drive the valve open or closed, while the modulating actuator accepts a 4 to 20 mA input for infinite valve positioning.  Actuator features a visual indicator, manual override, thermal overload protection, and permanently lubricated gears.

The pneumatic double acting actuator uses an air supply to drive the valve open and closed.  The actuator has two supply ports with one driving the valve open and the other driving the valve closed.  Spring return pneumatic actuators use the air supply to open the valve and internally loaded springs return the valve to the closed position.  Also available is the SV3 solenoid valve to electrically switch the air supply pressure between the air supply ports for opening and closing the valve.  Actuators are constructed of anodized and epoxy coated aluminum for years of corrosion free service.  Series BV3-3A Automated Three-Piece Ball Valves are competitively priced starting at $326.50.
