An actuator is a device that converts control signals into mechanical movement. In valve applications, actuators are used to open, close, or modulate the valve based on signals received from control systems. Actuators can be pneumatic, hydraulic, or electric.

They convert energy from a power source, such as electricity, hydraulic fluid, or pneumatic pressure, into mechanical motion to move the valve to the desired position. Valve actuators play a crucial role in automating valve operation, enhancing efficiency, and ensuring precise control in various industries, including oil and gas, petrochemical, water treatment, and manufacturing.
