Reaction torque sensors are often used as auditing and monitoring tools. This application utilizes to measure the reaction torque required by an electric valve actuator/motor to operate a ball, plug, or butterfly valve.
- In this application, a Reaction Torque Sensor is mounted between the electric valve actuator and valve housing.
- The valve stem passes freely through and does not make contact with the Reaction Torque Sensor.
- The Series Reaction Torque Sensor measures the torsion/torque moments required by the valve actuator to operate the valve.
- The Series measurements are then outputted to a digital display, streamed to a PC using Lorenz’s USB solutions, or Amplified for using with PLCs and data acquisition devices.
In addition, data can be viewed in real time and logged by operators using Lorenz Test and Measurement Software.
