Principle of operation
The medium flows through the valve against the closing direc-
tion (FTO). The position of the valve plug determines the cross-
sectional area of flow between the valve seat and plug. The plug
stem is sealed with a spring-loaded double PTFE stuffing box.
A metal bellows seal (Fig. 3) can be used for higher require- 4.2
ments. 5
A test connection is available on request for both versions. 4.2
The actuators are designed for pressure from both sides (see 4.1
Tables 4b and 5b). 23 5.5

Fail-safe position
Depending on how the compression springs are arranged in the
actuator (see Data Sheets T 8310 EN and T 8311 EN for further 5.1
details), the control valve offers two different fail-safe positions
effective upon air supply failure:
Actuator stem "extends":
When the air supply fails, the valve is closed (fail-close).
1.1
Actuator stem "retracts":
When the air supply fails, the valve is opened (fail-open).

Construction and principle of operation

The valve type 71.13 F is based on the Angle-body valve Typ 71.13 and the electric actuator
type Auma SAEXC 16.1 plus the linear thrust unit LE200.1

The Valve is flown in direction of the arrow. The adjusting of the plug is carried out by changing of the
electric signal at the actuator. The valvespindle is linked by a flangecoupling with the actuator.

In the standardversion a adjustable bonnet seals up the spindle to the outside. In addition the bonnet can be equiped
with O-Rings to seal up the spindle.

Mounting instruction

The valve including the actuator are mounted and adjusted ex works according the order specification.

Before installation of the Vetec-valve into the plant the connection pipe should thoroughly fushed
to remove any residues like nuts or bolt and other extraneous parts.

Also all packaging material must be removed from the valve, for example protection plates for the sealing
surface. As soon as the plate at the seat is removed the seat slips out of the valve-body. The seat must be
holden on to avoid the seat gets damaged.

The mounting position of the valve can be arranged in any way, but the vertical mounting (relating to
the actuator) into the pipe should be prefered.
The valve must be mounted free of stress. If necessary the pipes should be supported near connection
flange. The support of the valve and the actuator can be carried out after consultation with the manufacturer.

Consider that the arrow on the valve body shows in direction of flow.

Installation- and maintenance description


The VETEC-valves with the mounted actuators can be installed into the pipe in any position. By horizontal
installation the actuator must be supported.
Consider that the arrow on the valve body shows in direction of flow.
The VETEC-valves are low-maintenance.
If the bonnet after long operation time is leaking, the exchange of the packing rings is required. By bonnets with O-
rings you have to exchange the O-rings too.

Exchange of the packing:


1. Separate the actuator (Pos20, 21) at the coupling flanges (Pos.22 und Pos.23) from the valve.
Unscrew the hexagonal screws (Pos.24) and remove the pointer (Pos.17).
Release the hexagonal screws (Pos.25) and remove the spindleflange (Pos.23) from the spindle.
2. Release the hexagonal screws (Pos.28) and remove the actuator including the console from the valve.
3. Release the hexagonal nuts (Pos.19) at the bonnet (Pos. 13), so that the packing (Pos.12) is strain-free.
4. Release the hexagonal nuts (Pos.4) and remove the upper cap (Pos.9).
5. Remove packing rings (Pos.12), lubricator (Pos.11) und bushing (Pos.10).
6. Mount the upper cap (Pos. 9) again.
7. Equip the packing-space with bushing (Pos.10), lubricator (Pos.11) and new packing-
rings (Pos.12). Order und quantity of the rings as disassembled respectively packung-
space drawing. Packing-strings out of PTFE/Graphite should be bevelled cutted (Abb.7).
Packing-rings out of graphite are closed. Press the packing with a mounting tube into
the packing-space.
8. Mount the bonnet and tighten it.

Remark :
A packing out of graphiterings should be pressed
about 7% .
A mixed packing out of PTFE/Graphite should be
pressed about 10 %.

9. Mount the actuator (Pos. 20) with linear thrust unit (Pos.21) and console again.

Exchange of the plug

1.) Remove the actuator completely including the console.


2.) Release the hexagonal nuts (Pos.4) and upper cap (Pos.9) including spindle (Pos.7) and
plug (Pos.6) and pull them out of the valve-body.
3.) Pull the plug (Pos.6) and spindle (Pos.7) out of the upper cap.
Attention! Notice that the spindle do not get damaged by pulling out of the upper cap.
Even small scratchs in the area of the packing-space can lead to leackage and increase consumption of
the packing.

4.) Remove pin (Pos.8) and unscrew the spindle (Pos.7) out of the plug (Pos.6).
5.) Screw in spindle (Pos.7) in the new plug (Pos.6) , bore a new hole and hammer the pin ( Pos.8 ) into the
new hole.
(The plug (Pos.6) must be fitted backlashed-free on the spindle (Pos.7). The vary of concentric running of
the spindle (Pos.7) to the plug (Pos.6) must be little, so that the spindle (Pos.7) does not press the packing
(Pos.12) to one side of the packung-space. (If necessary align with a prism).

6.) Put the plug (Pos.6) including spindle (Pos.7) through the upper cap (Pos.9).
Attention! Notice that the spindle do not get damaged by pushing into the upper cap.
Even small scratches in the area of the packing-space can lead to leackage and increase consumption of
the packing.

7.) Screw on upper cap (Pos.9) including spindle (Pos.7) and plug (Pos.6) onto the valve-body (Pos.1).
8.) Equip packing-space with new packing and tighten the bonnet (Pos.13).
9.) Couple the spindle with the actuator. Check the stroke and adjust it.

Type 3271 Pneumatic Actuator EB 8310 EN
Type 3277 Pneumatic Actuator EB 8311 EN Data Sheet T 8310-1 EN
Principle of operation
The signal pressure pst generates a force F = pst · A on the dia-
phragm area A (2). This force is balanced by the actuator
springs (4). Taking into account the rated travel, the number of 5
2
4
springs and their compression determine the bench range. The
travel H is proportional to the signal pressure pst. The operating
direction of the actuator stem (7) depends on the arrangement
of the springs and the signal pressure connection (1). 7
1
The stem connector (8) connects the actuator stem (7) with the 11
plug stem (10) of the valve.
The adjustable mechanical travel stop (Fig. 12) is suitable for
actuators made of sheet steel with effective diaphragm areas of 6

240, 350, or 700 cm². Using the limit stop, the actuator travel
can be limited by up to 50 % in both directions (actuator stem
“extends” or “retracts”) and permanently adjusted. A special
version with one-sided travel stop for actuators with an effective
diaphragm area of 120 cm² is available.

Actuators are available with the following fail-safe actions: Fig. 9 · Type 3277-5 for direct attachment of accessories
“Actuator stem extends (FA)“
The springs cause the actuator stem to move to the lower end
position (sectional drawings, right) when the diaphragm is re-
lieved of pressure or when the supply air fails.
“Actuator stem retracts (FE)“
The springs cause the actuator stem to retract (sectional draw-
23
ings, left) when the diaphragm is relieved of pressure or when
18
the supply air fails.

Principle of operation
The signal pressure pst generates a force F = pst · A on the dia-
phragm area A (2). This force is balanced by the actuator 1 3
springs (4). Taking into account the rated travel, the number of 2
5
springs and their compression determine the bench range. The
travel H is proportional to the signal pressure pst. The operating
direction of the actuator stem (7) depends on the arrangement
of the springs. 4 2
The stem connector (8) connects the actuator stem (7) with the 5
plug stem (10) of the valve. 1

Fig. 12 shows the side-mounted Type 3273 Hand-operated
6
Actuator for actuators with effective diaphragm areas of 1400
7
and 2800 cm² and a maximum travel of up to 80 mm. The
handwheel (23) is fixed to the worm-geared shaft (20) and
moves the actuator stem over the worm-geared wheel (21) and 9
the threaded bushing (22). 8
10
A side-mounted handwheel as illustrated in Fig. 14 is available
for valves with 120 mm travel.
The adjustable mechanical travel stop (Fig. 7) is suitable for ac-
tuator version 1400-60 as well as 2800 cm² and tandem actua- Fig. 5 · Sectional drawing of actuator version 1400-120
tors. The actuator travel can be limited by up to 50 % in both di-
rections (actuator stem “extends” or “retracts”) and perma- 3
nently adjusted. The tandem actuator (Fig. 6) contains two cou- 1
pled diaphragms; they produce a positioning force that is twice
2
as high as the force of a single-acting actuator.
Actuators are available with the following fail-safe actions:
“Actuator stem extends (FA)“
The springs cause the actuator stem to move to the lower end
3 1
position (sectional drawings, right) when the diaphragm is re-
lieved of pressure or when the supply air fails.
“Actuator stem retracts (FE)“ 1 3
The springs cause the actuator stem to retract (sectional draw- 4
ings, left) when the diaphragm is relieved of pressure or when
the supply air fails. 2

Throttling or on/off service
In throttling service, the Type 3271 Pneumatic Actuators can be
used for supply pressures up to max. 6 bar.
In on/off service, the supply pressure must be reduced.
For fail-safe action “Actuator stem retracts (FE)“, the permissible
supply pressure must not exceed the upper bench range value 23
by more than 3 bar. 20
Actuators to be used with reduced supply pressures are labeled 21
accordingly. 22

Inductive Limit Switch for Pneumatic Control Valves
Type 3768

Application
Limit switch with two incorporated inductive switches and
optionally one 3/2-way solenoid valve for attachment to
pneumatic control valves
For rated travels from 7.5 to 120 mm

The limit switch is equipped with two inductive proximity


switches which issue a signal when an adjustable limit is ex-
ceeded in either direction.
Optionally, the limit switch is also available with an integral
3/2-way solenoid valve which registers a binary signal issued
by a control device and converts it into a binary signal pressure.
When the solenoid valve is in de-energized state, the actuator
moves the valve to the fail-safe position.
– All limit switches can be overridden and can be optionally
used as normally-closed or normally-opened contacts
– Versions for use in hazardous areas in type of protection
"Intrinsic safety" EEx ia II C T6 are available (refer to the sum-
mary of explosion protection certificates)
– Direct attachment to Type 3277 Pneumatic Actuator
– Attachment to actuators according to IEC 60534 and
NAMUR recommendations
– Attachment to rotary actuators with an interface according to
VDI/VDE 3845

plication of positioners and limit switches.

Fig. 2 · Type 3768 Limit Switch, opened housing

Associated Information Sheet T 8350 EN Edition April 2006

Data Sheet T 8356 EN


Principle of operation (Figs. 3 and 4)
When the limit switch is attached to the control valve, the valve
travel is transmitted via the pin (1.1) to the lever (1) of the actua-
tor. Any change in travel is converted into a rotary motion of the
shaft (2). The shaft (2) is fitted with two adjustable metal tags (4)
which operate the associated proximity switches (5).
For operation of these inductive limit switches, appropriate tran-
sistor relays must be connected in the output circuit. The proxim-
ity switch assumes high impedance when the metal tag (4) is
within the inductive field, whereas the sensor assumes low im-
pedance when the metal tag is outside the field.
When the incorporated solenoid valve is energized, a supply
air pressure is applied to the actuator. The speed of air supply is
adjustable at a restriction. When the solenoid valve is de-ener-
gized, the actuator is vented and the control valve moves to its
fail-safe position.

This unit is used when a pneumatic signal which has the right pressure
does not have the required flow to activate one or more pieces
of equipment. The Booster Relay supplies an output pres-
sure identical to the signal pressure but with a much larg-
er flow capacity.
Simultaneous pressure control of several units from a
small signal flow is possible.
When piping between signal instrumentation and opera-
tional area is long, pressure loss in signal piping is min-
imised by minimising signal flow demand.
Can be used with electropneumatic regulator to give high
flow E/P pressure control.
Can be used where pressure control of lubricated air is
required but signal control equipment must have non-
lubricated instrument quality air.
Can be fitted with positioners to increase actuator
speed.
