Spring Return & Direct Acting 90° Pneumatic Valve Actuators-Up to 1,000,000 Cycles
For use on quarter turn (90 degree)ball vales, plug valves, dampers, and resilient seated and high performance butterfly valves, the F Series Pneumatic valve actuator offers a simple and cost effective solution for valve automation needs. This pneumatic valve actuator is available in double acting and spring return fail safe configurations.
HOW IT WORKS
The Assured Automation F Series actuators operate with compressed air ranging from 40-120 PSI. F Series require no lubrication due to the carbon filled Teflon guide bands which keep the piston seals from wear and are self-lubricating.
The rotation of 90 degrees is caused by two dual opposed piston gear racks, which turn a center drive shaft. The drive shaft when coupled to a quarter turn valve drives the valve either open or closed. Position indication is visual with a top mounted indicator.
Additional accessories can be added such as Solenoids, Limit Switches, and Positioners as required.
