Actuated Solutions announces ATEX approval of HQ006 Actuator

Just months after the launch of the HQ005 actuator, the UK’s leading provider of valve automation products, Actuated Solutions, is announcing ATEX approval of its HQ006 electric quarter turn actuator.

Comprising high quality electrical components and alloy gearing, the compact yet powerful HQ006 ensures more consistent and reliable operations and an extended life span. Meanwhile, the product’s ATEX rating of EX II 2G, Exd IIB T4 confirms its suitability for use within explosive environments.

Especially designed for quarter turn applications, such as small ball, butterfly, plug valves and dampers, the HQ006 is relatively small yet provides impressively high output torques of up to 60Nm. Other key features and benefits include: a reversible motor with low current consumption, two M20 cable entries, manual override functionality, four limit switches and a high visibility beacon. The HQ006 also boasts a push button terminal strip, an anti-condensation heater, and its IP67 housing is hard anodised prior to painting to increase corrosion resistance.

Managing director, Paul Slaughter, believes the quality-focused, competitively-priced HQ006 has the potential to offer serious cost saving opportunities for users, as well as helping to facilitate safe valve automation in high risk environments. Paul comments: “We’re really pleased to able to offer the market small electric actuators suitable for ATEX environments, not many actuators have ATEX approval and certainly not for small bore valves, we’re sure the unique mounting system covering, F4, F5 & F7, along with the wide range of voltages which are available from, 24V to 240V, will help customers enormously. “After the response we had following the launch of the HQ005, we’re incredibly proud that the HQ006 is now ATEX approved and ready to help facilitate the control of explosive environments for a number of organisations.”

The HQ006 is available in Europe exclusively from Actuated Solutions. For more information please contact your local independent distributor, or visit www.actuated-solutions.co.uk
