ATI Local Auto-Manual Control

Performance Highlights




The ATI Local Auto-Manual Control module is based on proven, hi-pressure pilot-type poppet technology. ATI has utilized this technology for many years in our Dual 3-way Poppet Control Valve to provide the selective directional control of the power media for any Direct Gas, Gas-Over-Oil, or Hydraulic valve actuator. The local Auto-Manual function is integrated with the poppet valve assembly utilizing a commercially available 3-way stainless steel ball valve with a stainless steel lockable handle, eliminating large levers.

The poppet valve combines design simplicity with corrosion-resistant materials and easily replaceable nylon poppets to provide reliable, durable operation. With working pressures up to 3000 psig, the Dual 3-way Poppet Control Valve utilizes direct pipeline pressure gas for both power gas and pilot media, eliminating the need for any regulators or special low-pressure control supply systems and significantly increasing the system’s reliability. The compact design has multiple inputs and outputs to provide a central point of all final actuator control actions.

The sure action control of the Poppet Valve is achieved utilizing a pilot pressure on a piston to pop the nylon seals into the seat. This provides quick response and zero-leak control of the power gas directly to the actuator or to the hydraulic tanks. The poppet design allows for a full 3/8” flow port, providing high flow rates while handling contamination, and preventing atmospheric contaminants.

ATI Local Auto-Manual Control Performance Highlights
  • Marine-grade, hard-anodized aluminum body with all stainless steel components.
  • Standard piston provides 4:1 pressure ratio for pilot operation of other control components.
  • Low-pressure pistons available for retrofit applications.
  • Compact assembly (4”x4”x1 ½”) for direct valve mounting.
  • Integrated in-line filter on power and pilot gas.
  • Exhaust check valve to prevent atmospheric contaminates from entering the poppet valve.
  • Suitable for both gas and hydraulic apllications

Our Client


I have to say, we looked at the valves and the actuators this afternoon and they are very well packaged and presented. I want to thank ATI for the attention this order has clearly received & I plan to pursue similar solutions in the future with you guys.


In all of the readiness reviews that I have conducted, ATI is by far the most well-prepared. The organization has built a solid foundation, and is off to a healthy start to the new [ISO 9001:2015] standard; ATI has clearly taken a serious approach to addressing the risks of its business and handling mitigation in a controlled manner.

ATI linear actuators on 6-inch and 8-inch gate valves have worked flawlessly since put in Y-grade liquid service in 1994.

George Ford, Engineer, Enterprise Products

I was impressed and quite thankful for ATI’s commitment to get the job done on time and with a high level of quality.

Konrad M. Fontenot, Engineering Section Group Lead, Exxonmobil Beaumont

ATI has been supportive when we have had questions and their product has worked well for us. If the application came up again where we had the choice of using the ATI actuators, I would recommend getting them.


All of our switching valves for our mole sieve beds are orbit valves fitted with ATI actuators. These have been in service for ~8 months now and have had no issues.


ATI was very supportive during this project with helping us when we had to retrofit the actuators to the valves during a quick series of valve replacements.


We have 14 of your actuators at this facility, with a clean rack record for over a decade.
