Operated Valve (MOV) is an essential component of the Plant & Piping system. These valves are generally large and used for different applications such as Pump discharge etc. Motor Operated Valves are often called On-Off valves as the motors serve the purpose of fully opening or fully closing valves in pipelines. And they fully allow or stop the fluid flow. There are places where they are used for position control as well. The working of the motor in a motor-operated valve is described below.
The electric motor is mounted on the valve and geared to the valve stem so that the valve opens/closes as the motor runs. A PLC circuit is used to On/Off the electric motor. The Speed of opening of the valve is dependent upon the Torque and rated Output Speed of the motor. Relays are used to control the Voltage across the motor.
