Asahi/America, Inc., a leading thermoplastics manufacturer providing customized solutions for fluid handling systems in a variety of industries, introduces the Series 79 Pneumatic Actuators. Offered in stainless steel, aluminum and glass-filled polyamide, the actuators are ideal for a variety of applications, including chemical processing, water and wastewater treatment, landfills and any other application where an air supply is available.
With their unique outside material construction, Asahi/America's Series 79 Pneumatic Actuators are protected from adverse environments and corrosive process materials. Their interior design allows them to operate more efficiently, reduces friction, and also enables the actuators to be powered hydraulically.
Asahi/America Vice President of Engineering Valves and Actuation, Leo Lester, states, "We specifically engineered the Series 79 Actuators with materials that enhance performance, creating an accurate, reliable solution for a range of industries."
Asahi/America's Series 79 Actuators' double piston, double rack and pinion design provides constant torque output, minimal backlash and extreme durability. The actuators feature a visual position indicator and extended shaft, and come in air-to-air (double acting) or air-to-spring (single acting) models. They have a recommended air supply of 80 psi to 120 psi, and can be sized for pressure as low as 40 psi.
The Series 79 Pneumatic Actuators are available in ½" to 6" sizes for ball and multiport valves, and in 1 ½" to 24" for butterfly valves. They have ISO and NAMUR mounting dimensions.
