The SVX Modular Actuator is superior to the bracket mounted actuator in that it features a rack and pinion that is directly coupled to the valve shaft, transmitting force more efficiently; losses in operating force are minimized and the assembly is more efficient with a constant torque throughout the stroke of the actuator.
The mechanism is fully contained, the only external moving part is the handle.
Lower air pilot pressure is needed since the piston area and lever arm is larger compared to the conventional actuator assembly.
There are multiple connections for air supply which provides more flexibility for the end user in order to connect piping. The SVX Actuator does not pivot and thus eliminates the need for flexible tubing.
The SVX is supplied fully assembled and coupled to the valve, requiring no further labor.
Valves may be supplied in all rotor configurations, with inline, manifold mount or subplate mounted bodies. Contact factory for more information.
Repair kits are interchangeable with standard SV valves. Actuator repair kits are sold separately.
Materials of the valve are as previously described.
Materials of the actuator:
External: (body, cylinders and heads) anodized aluminum
(manganese phosphate coated carbon steel available)
Internal operator: 416 SS and bronze
