Pipe configurations near the valves.
What pipe sizes.
What valve sizes.
What is the flow rate and fluid velocity through each valve.
History of what maintenance was performed for each valve.

Technology is stealing American jobs. Stop visas for robots.

RE: motorized actuators noise for butterfly valves

Hard to say with the limited information that you have provided.

However, if one valve is operating against a much higher pressure, one would expect more noise from the valve.
