Harold Beck & Sons launching valve actuator this summer

05 June 2018

Harold Beck & Sons, Inc. is releasing the Group 57 1/4-turn rotary electric valve actuator this summer of 2018. The Group 57 maintains all traditional Beck actuator features, such as maintenance-free operation, long-term reliability and unmatched control, but adds features often required in hazardous environments and remote locations, typical of oil and gas wellhead and pipeline valves.

Other features of the Group 57 include: no burn-out motor; positioning accuracy to 0.1 degree; the ability to run on 12-48 Vdc or 120 Vac power; Class I, Division 1, Groups B, C & D hazardous location ratings; built-in electric fail-safe capability; fast stroking speeds for applications requiring a faster open or close rate; simple and flexible mounting hardware for virtually any valve including ISO 5211 applications.
