GO Ball Valve Actuated Capacitor Return PVC 1/2" Scr BSP BAPM54B



GO Ball Valve Actuated Capacitor Return PVC 1/2" Scr BSP BAPM54B

The BAP series electrically actuated ball valves automatically returns the valve to its original position when de-energised. The compact design works in the same way as a solenoid valve and can be considered ‘fail safe’ once the storage capacitor has charged up (approx 30 seconds). Unlike a solenoid valve the BAP can take full pressure in either direction, eliminating the need for a check valve.

The BAP series has a wide range of industry applications namely; dirty or contaminated fluids, viscous fluids, some corrosive fluids (check compatibility), gravity feed applications, anti water hammer slow close function, IP67 corrosive resistant enclosure, low power/solar/battery operated circuits (9-24v AC/DC).

            A ball valve is a form of quarter-turn valve which uses a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball to control flow through it. It is open when the ball's hole is in line with the flow and closed when it is pivoted 90-degrees by the valve handle.  The handle lies flat in alignment with the flow when open, and is perpendicular to it when closed, making for easy visual confirmation of the valve's status.

            Ball valves are durable, performing well after many cycles, and reliable, closing securely even after long periods of disuse. These qualities make them an excellent choice for shutoff and control applications, where they are often preferred to gate and globe valves, but they lack their fine control in throttling applications.
