This one-hour webinar will introduce the basics of actuation that will appear in MEP Design focusing on quarter-turn style valves. The presentation will delve into how the actuators operate from a mechanical standpoint while highlighting the codes and standards that apply to design. Electric and pneumatic actuation will be discussed in detail – highlighting the differences in styles of actuators, their varying applications, cost, as well as reliability. A detailed analysis will be conducted as to the benefits as well as disadvantages of each style of actuator.
Upon successful completion of the course learners will be able to:
• Know the differences between the three types of actuation styles – hydraulic, electric, and pneumatic.
• Understand the basics of design for electric actuators.
• Understand valve selection, installation, and operation performance ratings (NEMA) for valve actuators.
