Function and Design

The actuator only has one movable part which entails an outstanding operational dependability. The stroke length is adjusted simply with the help of stop screws on the side of the actuator. All actuators are function and tightness tested from a factory which guarantess 4 million operations. The actuators are modular and can be provided with limit switch box, positions, valve positioners and solenoid valve.

Mounting holes according to ISO 5211 and DIN 3337, for standardized mounting against the valve.

Headboards with adjustable screws for stroke length (5-10°).

Actuators AT 3841 single acting:
The actuator is delivered as a standard with a spring closing function. If a spring opening function is requested instead, it has to be specified while ordering.

Accessories and Options

Accessories

  • Visual position indicator.
  • Emergency gear shift between actuator and valve.
  • Internally connected pressurized air tank for emergency operation.
  • Block for control timing
  • Valve block for air evacuation from the acuator without dissassembly of the control air lines.
  • Inductive or mechanical limit switch.
  • Valve positioner, 4-20mA or 3-15 psi.
  • Limit switch box.
  • 180° rotation
  • "Spring to center"

Installation

The actuator can be installed indoors or outdoors in any position. All though mounting the valve with the air connections upwards should be avoided to minimze the risk of water and dirt to get inside of the valve.

Maintenance and spare parts

The actuator should be disconnected electrically and pneumatically before assembly or dissassembly is started. The actuator should be mounted with even spaced distances.

Spare parts
The repair kit includes the neccessary soft parts.
