Mechanical Quick Start Guide

Mechanical Quick Start Guide
Important! Read this first!
The manuals (IOM’s) supplied with all Armstrong products contain important installation and
operating instructions. Adhere to ALL the product specifications, safety tips, cautions and warnings
appearing throughout the manual. Failure to do so may result in reduced product performance. More
seriously, it may cause property damage, personal injury, production down-time and other losses.
All valves and actuators are shipped factory set to the customers requirements specified at time of
purchase. Shipping notes attached to valve and actuator assembles describe port configuration and
valve zero positions. Warranty registration offers many benefits to the end customer, please visit:
armstronginternational.com for more information.
Step 1: Location Considerations
Ensure the installation location offers suitable access to (1) the electrical
connection terminals, (2) manual override handle, (3) actuator power switch,
(4) display and keypad.
Do not install the actuator near or in high pressure wash down areas.
The units must NOT be installed upside down.
Step 3: Operation
DO NOT EXCEED THE RATED VALVE BODY

Start Up Procedure
Step 2: Recommended Installation
1
Ensure all supplies are isolated
2
Turn ON unit
(A) Check valves (poppet style for steam, swing style for water)
MUST be fitted upstream of the valve inlet ports.
3
Open COLD isolation valve
4
Open STEAM / HOT isolation valve
(B) Isolation valves are RECOMMENDED on the supply lines.
5
Open OUTLET isolation valve
(C) Armstrong recommends a pressure regulating valve to
reduce excessive supply pressures (a throttle valve may
suffice). See IOM for commissioning details.
NOTE: Reverse procedure to Shut Down

(D) Ensure pipe work is adequately supported.
(E) Ensure mechanical protection of the wiring to the unit. It is
RECOMMENDED to use screened conduit or cables.
(F) Use a 24Vdc (3.5 amps for G12 / 5 amps for G13)
regulated power supply.
(H) Consider gauge points.
(temperature/pressure)
(I) Thermal loops are
recommended to
minimize heat conduction
(typ 2’ deep)
(J) Ensure ‘low point’ in
conduit loop to prevent
leading of water into
gland entry points
(K) Do not install actuator
upside down.
