Actuation & Accessories

Pneumatic Actuators convert compressed gas into energy.  This energy is used to induce movement of a valve component from, open to close or vice versa in an on/off application, or partial movement in a positioning or modulating application. 

A complete range of associated accessories can be supplied for example solenoid valves for remote operation of pneumatic actuators, switchboxes for remote and visual indication of the valve position, pneumatic or electric positioners and/or transmitters for position control and position feedback, travel stops, air filters/regulators/gauges etc.

Electric actuators are used for the automation of industrial valves.  The requirement of this type of actuator is to transmit a torque that is capable of moving the valve component from open to closed and vice versa.  Electric actuators are manufactured with motors that are suited to a range of DC & AC voltages and to suit both on/off, positioning and modulating applications. Enclosures are provided that allow the actuator to be utilized in hazardous and potentially explosive environments.  Actuator design can also incorporate “intelligent” communication devices that provide process control functions and diagnostic feedback of the actuators performance.
