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.
