I need a pharmaceutical grade ball valve that can actuate at about 300 mSec.
Any suggestions?

Would a diaphragm or butterfly valve work for you? These types I think might cycle faster. That having been said, I think a normal rack-and-pinion type actuator from Georg Fischer or similar might be able to meet your requirements if the air side is done well.

I will suggest to you is to use piston type actuator which it's provide fast stroke time. Booster is also available from Fisher-Control
