Actuators

Optimux OpTK™ Piston Cylinder Actuators

Optimux’s Spring Cylinder Actuator is a key element to the OpGLTM excellent shutoff characteristics.  The OpTKTM delivers more than three times the linear force offered by traditional diaphragm actuators while providing response to control signal.  The OpTKTM has been designed for supply pressures up to 150 psi (10.3 Bar) and unlike diaphragm actuators is field-reversible for air-to-open or air-to-close operations without any additional parts.  The OpTKTM dynamic positioning accuracy means precise control and faster response time upon the command of the control signal.  The supply pressure is directed to both sides of the piston by the positioned for stiff and precise actuator operation.  This is a significant advantage over diaphragm actuators which depend only on spring robustness and a diaphragm membrane (both susceptible to degradation and wear.)

Optimux OpRPA™ Rack and Pinion Actuators

Optimux’s series RPA represent an excellent alternative to our RA piston-Cylinder series for rotary valve applications.  As with the RA series, the RPA actuators are compact, allow for field reversibility, provide adequate torque for most standard applications and are easy to maintain.  RPA actuators are also offered for all our rotary valves: Series DX and Series VB.
