Asahi/America and our partner, Valve Sales, Inc., manufacture and assemble customized electric actuator and valve assemblies for the oil and gas industry. With hundreds of installations and decades of experience, Asahi and VSI are proven industry leaders who understand the demands of oil and natural gas gathering, flow control, and processing.

 Press Releases

  • Asahi/America, Inc., the leader in fluid flow solutions for corrosive environments, will be showcasing their low voltage/low current (LVLC) Series 92 explosion proof electric actuator in booth #371 at this year’s Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, TX.

    Asahi/America’s LVLC Series 92 explosion proof electric actuators have been installed with confidence in a variety of oil and gas applications including pipeline transmission, well head control, gas lift, drilling fluids, and chemical plants.

    The LVLC Series 92 explosion proof electric actuator features a die cast aluminum alloy enclosure, which is UL1203 certified for Class I DIV 1&2 locations, and is fitted with an O-ring maintaining its NEMA Type 4x protection. Access to the enclosure is by two 1/2” NPT conduit openings in the base. The output shaft penetrates through both sections of the enclosure. The upper portion of the shaft is connected to a visual beacon position indicator, while the lower portion of the shaft is an ISO 17mm female star.

    The internals of the LVLC Series 92 explosion proof actuator feature a reversing 120 VAC or 220 VAC capacitor-run motor, or an LVLC DC motor (12 VDC or 24 VDC). The actuator features a permanently lubricated gear train, hardened alloy steel gearing, and two end-of-travel limit switches for open and close positions. Accessories include 4-20 mA positioners, auxiliary switches, and custom wiring configurations, which are all available factory installed and calibrated in the actuators.
