Electric Valve Actuators
To satisfy a continually growing demand for a range of electric actuators that were not only compact in size but big on functionality, Adam Chapman, Managing Director of AV Actuators, finally uncovered in 2015 what is now the instantly recognisable grey and orange AVA Electric Actuator. Seeing the potential for this basic and smart actuator range to fill the gap for a compact electric actuator in the market, he negotiated exclusivity for the actuator and then set about testing the actuator. With excellent test results behind him, marketing and promotion started, the first major tangible part of which is this technical web resource. The range of actuators focus on 20Nm through to 110Nm in an IP67 ABS housing offering on off, failsafe and modulating electric actuators. The complete range covers 20Nm to 400Nm with additional series (with limited functionality) to 1000Nm and 2000Nm models.
The AVA range of electric quarter turn actuators offer something new to a dated industry, offering compact smart actuators with rich feature lists. With stock held in the UK and growing throughout Europe via distributors, AVA actuators are readily available.
This year, 2019, AVA has opened its new facility in the UK offering incresed levels of stock, R&D centre and in the near future we will be assembling and testing our actuators here in the UK. The actuators will be pre assembled at the factory in Asia before we finish the assembling and testing here. We intend to work closely with our local Chamber of Commerce on this. In 2019, AVA will also be working on developing the ATEX range of actuators to be used in Hazardous area use, this will be expanded to 20Nm to 400Nm. We will also be re developing our new 200-400Nm actuators. This will replace the existing models which are limited in functionality compared to our 20-110Nm series actuators.
AVA is working closely with new partners around the world and are actively looking for new distributors and partners around the globe.
AVA has now also established an AVA Actuators LLC sales office in the USA. With warehouse and office facilities in New Jersey, AVA USA holds substantial inventory of the popular models for immediate delivery. Every AVA actuator that leaves the warehouse is function tested to guarantee an excellent service to its growing list of satisfied US customers.
