Spring return controlled by limit switch

Product

Features

- Rack & pinion construction delivering torques upto 5000 Nm in a compact size

- The actuator is suitable for coarse – fine adjustment, typically for batching operations or processes

- The actuator has to be spring return

- The operation sequences fixed from full open, partial open to full close

- Infinite intermediate positions are possible with the limit switch

- It can be fine tuned to the application easily

- The settings can be changed at site with ease, by simply adjusting the third cam provided

- It is applicable for 90° or 180°

- Any spring return actuator can be converted into this arrangement by adding Metso limit switch along with NAMUR valve type 30138

- The accuracy and repeatability depends upon the air pressure variation, change in the torque of ball valve, change in density and the pressure of media, etc…

- Expected range 3% with all considerations 

3-position rotary actuator, double acting/single acting, 3-position mechanical stopper

Product

Features

- The actuator is suitable for coarse – fine adjustment, typically for batching operations or processes

- The actuator has to be double acting

- The repeatability is 100% since stopping is by mechanical stoppers. It is suitable for application calling for the precise fine-coarse adjustment like liquid filling system

- The actuator can be switched to one, position from any other position very easily with the solenoid control. The 3rd position is achieved by the mechanical stopping of the piston movement, in the return stroke by pneumatic stopper pistons

- The Intermediate position is present at 20% opening. The opening can be adjusted as required by the set screw. This is field adjustable

- The actuator as a standard, works in reverse action, as opposed to conventional configuration i.e. piston inward stroke opens the valve, and piston outward stroke closes the valve

- The end stops (+/- 10 °C) are provided on the closing and opening side of the actuator for setting valve closing precisely

- The springs can be provided to bring actuator to mid position as a standard
