THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT BETTIS ACTUATORS AND HOW THEY WORK! Bettis actuators are primarily used to convert energy into torque that controls a mechanism or makes it move in a system into which it is attached. The instrument typically runs on electricity or pressure (hydraulic or pneumatic) and is functional in starting as well as stopping the motion. But what are the parts that make the motor work? It is the rotor and stator assemblies, which are commonly considered to be the primary and secondary winding of the motor. The functioning of the Bettis Actuators If we talk about the functioning of the motor, voltage is applied to the stator assembly that results in inducing current flow to the rotor assembly. This interaction is responsible for creating a magnetic field that makes the motion possible. DC and AC are the two types of motors. AC motors generally move at a constant speed, which is governed by the frequency of the voltage applied by the magnetic poles. The AC motor comprises stator assembly as well as rotor assembly. In cases where the AC motor is an induction motor, the stator’s field is more than the speed at which the rotor rotates. While when it comes to the synchronous motor, both the stator and the rotor move in synchronization. On the other hand, DC motors move at variable speeds with rotor assembly rotating in an attempt to align with the state assembly, which is obstructed by a part called a commutator. The commutator is responsible for switching the rotor feel, whereas the state assembly remains stationary. This is how the speed and positioning are controlled. Types of Bettis actuators Bettis is the top manufacturer of pneumatic, hydraulic quarter-turn, and linear valve actuators, as well as quality electric actuators. With experience of more than 50 years in the industry, they have established themselves as the best service provider for actuators. It can be considered that Bettis actuators are used in every application with the automatic, offshore, and onshore operation of valves.
There are many other types of actuators also, but today we will just help you understand the varieties of Bettis actuators - Pneumatic motors work with the help of air, using vacuum for compressed air, which transforms energy to rotary or linear motion. Speed and torque are the determinants of air pressure and flow. These kinds of actuators are primarily used in tasks where positioning accuracy is not a necessity. Hydraulic motors have a piston that is moved through a tube with the help of pressurized fluid. The higher the pressure is, the higher will be the torque produced. These kinds of motors produce linear, oscillatory, and rotary motion. However, the acceleration with them is limited and is considered to be typically inefficient as they require more maintenance compared to other actuators. THE BOTTOM LINE Actuators are used to convert energy into torque that enables the movement and mechanism of a system. Bettis actuators are one of the most reliable products available in the market for industries that use motors. The above post includes everything that needs to be known about Bettis actuators, along with their functions and types.
