Manual and automated actuators are used to operate valves. Manual actuators include levers, handwheels, and chainwheels. Actuators for automation typically use pneumatic, electric and hydraulic power to actuate a valve shaft. The force output of the actuator must be sufficient to overcome valve static friction and dynamic torque.
