FAQ: What Does an Actuator Do?

What does an actuator do? An actuator drives a valve, causing it to move toward the open or closed positions. Actuators are present in all automatic valves, and can take the form of a motor (servo, pneumatic, hydraulic, etc), a solenoid, or something else. With a manual valve, your hand is the actuator. Actuators operate Read More

FAQ: What are Low NOx Burners?

What is NOx? Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), is a common byproduct of combustion processes. Whenever fuel (natural gas, propane gas, methane, coke oven gas, biogas, etc) is burned at high heat, NOx is produced. It is present in emissions from cars, trucks, boats, planes, and construction equipment, as well as industrial equipment like power plants, kilns, Read More
