Green actuators reduce air consumption by up to 30 percent
Tomoe Valve has announced that on a torque for torque comparison, the recently extended G Series actuator range uses 30 percent lower air consumption than its rack and pinion equivalent, making it a 'green' solution for industry in general.
The G Series actuator range now has 15 double acting and 15 spring return models and covers the Tomoe valve range from DN400 to DN600. Full traceability is offered with each actuator, and a wide range of options are available including a stainless steel bodied actuator as well as a full range of other protective coatings.
Tomoe's extended range of actuators incorporates the unique Scotch Yoke design, utilising a 5deg off set. This design enables the maximum torque to be delivered from the valve seat at closed position. The first 5deg of break out movement is crucial to an efficient disc separation from the seat and the 5deg asymmetric operation maximises its efficiency. The extremely high torque output also results in smaller envelope dimensions for no loss in torque output.
