An actuated control valve is an essential part of many industrial processes. They are used to regulate, direct or control the flow of liquids and gases. Typically, these valves use either rotary motion (ball valve) or linear motion (butterfly valve) to open and close which enables media to flow from one side to another. These valves are controlled by a signal from a device such as an electric motor or pneumatic actuator. They have replaced traditionally used manually operated valves in many applications due to their high efficiency and precise control over the flow rate. 
Actuated valves are available in various sizes and materials depending on the application they are used for. These valves are most commonly used within the water industry at treatment plants and water distribution plants. Actuated water valves play an essential role in controlling both the pressure and flow. These valves are found in applications ranging from industrial processes to residential plumbing, making them invaluable components of any system. Actuated valve packages are also commonly found in the oil and gas industry due to their precise control capabilities and reliability at both extreme pressures and temperatures. 
The most notable advantage of using an actuated valve is its ability to be remotely controlled. This means that even when it’s located in hard-to-reach locations, adjustments can still be made quickly and accurately from a distance through careful programming. Additionally, these valves feature settings that can automatically adjust based on changes in pressure or temperature - allowing for improved safety and efficiency without having to manually adjust the valve each time there is a change.
There are several actuator configurations available including pneumatic single-acting spring closed, pneumatic double-acting, electric double acting. There is also a battery backup option available for pneumatic double-acting actuators in safety-critical applications.
