Power Cylinder Operated Valve

Brochure BV Valves R04


The Model BV2X Power Cylinder Operated Valve is designed to be used where minimum pressure drop is required or applications where it is not practical to use the flowing stream as the power medium to operate a valve. Because the main piston is controlled externally, and by reason of the 45° body design, pressure drop through these valves is extremely low.

Standard power cylinders are designed to operate on 30 psi (207 kPa) minimum for full stroke and are limited to a maximum pressure of 150 psi (1034 kPa).

The power cylinder may be operated either pneumatically or hydraulically with electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic pilot valves used to control application or removal of pressure from the cylinder.
