The Air Torque actuator is manufactured, assembled & tested in Bergamo Italy to highest of international standards and approvals. In a little over 20 years since the company was founded in 1990, the Air Torque brand of aluminium, rack & pinion and scotch yoke pneumatic actuators have become known worldwide for their high quality and reliability, with 100% of all manufacturing and construction materials sourced within Western European Countries.

All Air Torque Pneumatic Actuators are continuously tested to 4 Million cycles, ensuring a trouble free experience and fit and forget solution that comes with Manufacturers warranty as standard for correctly specified applications.


Rack And Pinion Air Torque Pneumatic Actuators:

Available in both Spring return & double acting units (18 in total) the Air Torque actuator rack and pinion unit can achieve torque output figures reaching 10,000 Nm and in doing so, overpowering almost any other pneumatic actuator in its class.

The extruded aluminium body of the Air Torque Actuator comes as standard with internal and external corrosion protective coatings to ensure maximum life expectancy from the units. The Dual Piston Rack & Pinion Design forms part of the compact, robust and symmetrical mounting position. The reverse operation of the actuator can be achieved without unnecessary and time consuming returns to the manufacturer in field simply by inverting the pistons.

Modular, spring loaded cartridge designs for fail safe actuators offer a coated spring protection providing a greater level of corrosive resistance and end of line safety.High and low temperature versions allow the Air Torque Actuator to excel in even the harshest of environments with Stainless Steel & Epoxy Coated options completing the range. Non standard 120, 135 & 180 Degree options, again in both spring return and double acting are available for applications that require this particular setup.

In-field, technical expertise & experience for product development has led to the Airtorque actuator securing a list of International Patents & Quality Approvals which include Atex 94/9EC, SIL3 IEC 61508 & ISO 9001-2000.

Also incorporating a universal Anti-Blowout drive shaft it is not hard to see why the Air Torque actuator is the  preferred choice to some leading, global manufacturers including the likes of Unilever, Shell & Castrol.

Scotch Yoke Air Torque Pneumatic Actuators:

Scotch Yoke Air Torque Actuators are designed to operate in the harshest, most demanding industry applications and environments where functionality and reliability are required throughout the complete cycle of valve automation. Predominantly used for larger sized Ball & Butterfly Valves the Scotch Yoke Actuator offers 90° quarter turn, on off operation by converting linear movement to rotary action through the internal driving cylinder and scotch yoke mechanism with high start and end torque output up to 60,000NM.  This in turn transmits power continuously and precisely to perform the operation of the Ball or Butterfly Vale. The ATHD Air Torque Scotch Yoke Actuator is a compact, lightweight and economical unit bringing reliability and low maintenance to industries where it is needed most and offering long, un-interrupted service. Available in both Spring Return & Double Acting units setup can be arranged in either the fail safe open or closed positions, returning the the actuator and valve position to the required safety location in the event of a power failure.

Same day delivery for Actuated Valves

At Actuation Valve we have worked closely with Air Torque since their early days of trading and immediately recognised the quality & reliability of the units produced, something that is essential to our philosophy. From the the first enquiry through to delivery to site we offer turn key solutions from design to after sales support and advice for all applications with aim of maximising customer satisfaction. We carry a large stock in the UK of the Air Torque Actuator and can size, assemble & test in house from our range of quarter turn Ball, Plug & Butterfly Valves with next day delivery if needed.

In addition to Air Torque Actuator, we also stock relevant additional ancillary products such as Solenoid Valves, Limit Switch Boxes, Gear Boxes, Mounting Kits and Air Filter Regulators. Safe Area, Intrinsically Safe and Explosive protection housings for all units ensure minimal turn around time.
