EBV Electronic Ball Valves

Isimet Electronic Ball Valve

ISIMET® Integrated Laboratory Gas Service Panel

    PROS of ISIMET Electronic Ball Valves (EBVs)
  • Low power consumption.
  • Minimal heat for improved reliability and longer lifespan.
  • Virtually no maintenance.
  • No restriction in flow (full port).
  • Orientation and direction of flow do NOT matter. EBVs can be installed in any direction and confi guration.
  • EBVs close automatically when power is off via stored energy.
  • Reduced water hammer and elimination of solenoid humming.
  • Simpler to order. You only need to specify gas vs. water and size.
  • Differential pressures do not matter.
  • Rugged, reliable stainless steel construction.
  • Low voltage. Does not require an electrician to install.
    CONS of the solenoids
  • High power consumption.
  • High heat; temperatures routinely exceed 140 degrees F. The solenoid coil heat reduces valve’s life expectancy.
  • Solenoids must be maintained annually to ensure clean lines and proper seating of the solenoid.
  • Solenoids have varying internal construction and flow paths that can reduce flow.
  • Direction of flow and orientation are prescribed and critical to correct Direction of flow and orientation are prescribed and critical to correct installation and operation.
  • Normally closed solenoids require constant power to remain in open position.
  • Solenoids can cause humming and water hammer.
  • There are at least nine types of solenoids, which makes ordering confusing.
  • Differential pressure is critical for correct solenoid operation.
  • Aluminum, brass, and/or miscellaneous metals construction.
  • Often high voltage, requiring an electrician to install.
