Pneumatic actuators from Kinetrol, Max-Air, Bürkert & Valsteam

Actuators & Actuated Valves

In this article, we introduce you to four of the top Actuators & Actuated valve suppliers – Max-Air, Bürkert, Valsteam, and BM Engineering Supplies – along with some of their best products. Actuators & Actuated valves convert energy into mechanical motion and consist of a cylinder, piston, and ports or valves.

Kinetrol Actuators: 

Kinetrol has developed a vane-type rotary pneumatic actuator, patented in response to the growing need for quarter-turn valves and mechanism actuation. Since then, they have been continuously improving and expanding their actuator and control equipment range to cater to the ever-evolving demand for more advanced and precise process control and monitoring equipment. We are proud to supply their trustworthy products as their Scottish partner.

Max-Air Technology Pneumatic Actuators:

Max-Air Technology is one of the leading brands for pneumatic actuators, offering a range of cost-effective solutions for the most complicated flow requirements, including diverting and multi-port flow applications. Their unique adjustable dual-travel stops provide the greatest degree of control in the industry at ±10 degrees on each end of the stroke.

Max-Air’s MT Series rack and pinion pneumatic actuators are the next generation of innovations used. They feature a slimmer body design while maintaining extensive options for easy valve integration. They also offer flexible customization and the same reliable operation. With NAMUR mounting for accessories, along with patented ±10° adjustment for both the open and closed positions, the MT series is setting the standard.

Bürkert Actuator Valves:

Bürkert’s range of actuators includes rotary and linear actuators controlled either pneumatically or electrically. Bürkert Angle Seat Control Valves have linear actuators for high-temperature or steam apps. For quarter-turn valves, rotary actuators can be used based on size and usage.

The Type 2000 Angle-Seat Valve operates via air pressure and has a direct flow path with high flow rates. It can be controlled using a single or double-acting piston actuator and features an actuator made of different materials based on the surrounding temperature. It also has a reliable self-adjusting packing gland that ensures high sealing integrity and makes it maintenance-free and robust. You can retrofit the valve with a comprehensive range of accessories for position indication, stroke limitation, or manual override.

Valsteam ADCA Actuated Globe Valves:

Valsteam Actuated Globe Valves, also known as Control Valves, regulate pressure, temperature, level, and humidity in steam applications. They offer precise control due to their diaphragm-style actuators.

Valsteam’s PV40 control valves are single-seated, two-way bodies constructed with in-line straight connections. The PA pneumatic actuator is a rubber diaphragm and multisprings. Its action can be DA – direct action (air to close) or RA – reverse action (air to open). The engineers have meticulously crafted the PV40 valves to ensure precise control even in the most challenging process conditions. Their wide application ranges allow the use of this valve with the most common process fluids such as water, superheated water, steam, air, gas and other non-corrosive fluids.
