THE SERIES WE05 offers the best possible design for socket weld ball valves. The
swing out body feature and seat arrangement allow for trouble-free welding installation.
The Series WE05 incorporates a full port 3-piece SS ball valve for ideal flow rates with
minimal pressure drop. The valve features a blowout proof stem for added safety,
reinforced PTFE seats and seals for longer life, and a 316 SS (ASTM CF8M) ball for
Actuators are directly mounted creating a compact assembly for tight spaces. Limit
switches can be mounted directly to the valves, allowing for remote position indication.
The Series WE05 can be configured with either an electric or pneumatic actuator.
Electric actuators are available in weatherproof or explosion-proof, a variety of supply
voltages and two-position modulating control. Two-position actuators use the supply
voltage to drive the valve open or close, while the modulating actuator accepts a 4 to
20 mA input for valve positioning. Actuators feature thermal overload protection and a
permanently lubricated gear train.
The pneumatic double acting actuator uses an air supply to drive the valve open
and closed. The actuator has two supply ports with one driving the valve open and
the other driving the valve closed. Spring return pneumatic actuators use the air
supply to open the valve and internally loaded springs return the valve to the closed
position. Also available is the SV3 solenoid valve to electrically switch the air supply
pressure between the air supply ports for opening and closing the valve. Actuators
are constructed of anodized and epoxy coated aluminum for years of corrosion free
