Actuators use electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic energy to open and close elements of a valve.
KLINGER offers a wide range of actuators as well as actuator accessories, including 90° electrical actuators, pneumatic actuators (90°, 120°, 180°), actuators for diaphragm valves, butterfly, solenoid and ball valves as well as position indicators, silencers and switch boxes.
Our valve specialists will work with you to provide the optimum solution to suit your specific requirements. In addition to the KLINGER range of actuators, our team can source a range of additional products based on application and adjoining valve specifications. For more information about our valve packaged service offering visit our project management page.
- Application: ball valves, butterfly valves, customs taps and 3-way valves
- Electical or pneumatic actuators
- Rotating actuators 90°, 120° or 180°
Pneumatic rack and pinion actuators set new standards in performance and energy management and have revolutionised the control of butterfly valves, ball valves and plug valves. These actuators provide up to 40% higher torque with the same or smaller construction size and from 40% to up to 60% less air consumption compared with other types.
The pneumatic scotch-yoke is a type of actuator with a U-torque characteristic, which is favourable for valves (maximum torque requirement in the end positions (OPEN / CLOSE) and shut-off valves (maximum torque requirement in the closed position). Special kinematics have particularly advantageous mechanical properties at large armatures or at high flow rates. In these applications, a hydrodynamic torque acts on the shut-off element. This torque can even exceed the nominal torque requirement of the valve.
Electric actuators can rotate 90° and are used for ball valves, butterfly valves, plug valves and 3-way valves. Constructed with quality in mind this product consists of a robust powder-coated aluminium body and a self-locked gear in high alloy steel.
