The LFC™ 2A Water hydraulic actuated isolation valves is based on the same design as the LFC™ 2A pressure regulating valve. Water hydraulic actuated valves are more cost effective than the LFC™ 2A electrical actuated valves. The upstream water hydraulic power are used to actuate the LFC™ 2A isolation valve. The speed of the valve can be adjusted to any desired speed fairly quickly and easily. The LFC™ 2A Water hydraulic actuated isolation valve are generally used for dissipator isolation/ level control valves. Using line fluids removes the need for any gear boxes or handwheels which makes them ideal for applications where tampering is a problem.
Low Operating Torque:
The LFC™ 2A Water hydraulic isolation valves are hydrostatically un-balanced to enable easy opening and closing at any pressure and differential conditions. It does not require the use of a gearbox or a by-pass valve to balance pressure between the inlet and outlet.
