Enhancing HVAC Efficiency and Savings through COVNA Valve Actuators
COVNA is one of the leading manufacturers of actuators ranging from pneumatic to electric to solenoid valve actuators. Their products made through patented German technology have unique features that make them useful in different applications.
Their electric valve and pneumatic valve actuators are particularly designed for both modern and legacy HVAC systems. Here is how they stand out.
On the outside, both the electric and pneumatic valve actuators have a continuous surface design with no cavities of grooves. This ensures dirt and debris don’t accumulate. In turn, this design reduces the maintenance burden.
The hard, anodized aluminium alloy that makes the outer cylinder of COVNA valve actuators gives them protection against corrosion. The piston is made of galvanized cast steel and all gasket interfaces are sealed giving an IP67 rating. This robust design means the actuators can even move directly in the path of water.
- More Torque In a Smaller Casing
The motor is smaller in size but generates a larger torque pushing the piston to take up much larger loads.
The diameter of the lead screw stacks up well against competition. A larger diameter means the COVNA pneumatic and electric valve actuators are much more reliable and have a longer travel life. On load life curves, COVNA valve actuators can easily take up 750N of load over a distance of about 8,000km.
- Quick and Easy Installation
The actuator mounting process is faster, simpler and eliminates the risk of misalignment. Both the shaft and the motor are not subjected to any radial load.This reduces the setup time and boosts installation efficiency.
In addition, COVNA has a strong team of quality assurance experts and application engineers that can work with you to help you optimize your HVAC application.
