Do you manufacture valves? We only manufacture electric valve actuators. All of our valves are sourced from a 3rd party. If you already have a valve, simply send it to us and we will adapt it to our actuator. We are yet to encounter a valve type, model and valve that we can’t actuate.
Can your actuators really control every valve? Our mounting kit adapts to ASME and ISO 5211 valve standards. We can automate pretty much any valve
under 4”. Here are some examples of the valve brands that we’ve automated. We also specialize in custom valve automation.
Which valves do you recommend most often? It all depends on the application. Our engineering team is always available to help you source a valve, we just need the following information:
Inlet pressure: __________
Outlet pressure: __________
Media (Liquid or Gas): __________
Max flow: __________
Line size: __________
You can also use our valve calculator to establish the CV value or Flow.
What is a CV value? It’s a dimensionless value used to find a valve that can handle your required flow. For further insight, please consult our valve theory page
What is the actuators power consumption? Hanbay actuators are smart and operate with low in power consumption. Fuse for 3amps. Typical current draw while moving is less than 1A. The actuator consumes less than 0.01A when idle.
What sets your actuators apart? Hanbay actuators are customized to your specifications. We offer multiple control, feedback and enclosure options including: TTL, Modbus, manual override, external cooling fan, internal heaters and more.
Are your actuators water proof and explosion proof? Hanbay M-Series actuators are equivalent to NEMA 4 / IP56. The R-Series actuators are equivalent to NEMA 6 / IP67. Hanbay actuators are also available with a submersible or explosion-proof enclosure.
Established in 1986, Hanbay is a manufacturer of miniature electric valve actuators that can be customized for any application, in any industry.
Hanbay’s electric valve actuators provide precise positioning, with the highest torque, resulting in accurate flow control. Our expertise is in manufacturing compact actuators capable of micro-positioning on miniature valves.
