Where Can One Apply ActuatorValve In The Mining Industry?
Electric and pneumatic actuator valves in the mining industry has widespread application. These vary from underground applications such as dewatering pumps, HVAC, dust control and others. Other applications include the ore processing sections where there are processes such as pumping of slurry, dewatering, floatation, and smelting which require the control of the flow of fluids either in the form of stopping or regulating the flow. Some areas may have an inherent explosive environment – these are areas such as those that contain coal dust. Auxiliary services such as power generation also require actuated valves to be in operation, and it may be necessary in this scenario to have high precision control. In all these cases of application in the mining industry, it is apparent that there is a need for the rugged type of applications that suit the abrasive nature of the environment, lest there may be undesired wear and tear which may compromise the operation. The following are examples of where actuators may be applied.
- Fan Dampers
- Fuel control valves
- Reagent control valve
- Boiler feedwater valves
- Air compressor valves and may other applications
