Pneumatic actuators are required to operate in a wide variety of applications; they have to function first time every time, often under very difficult circumstances. One actuator may perform hundreds of cycles 24 hours a day, whereas another may open and close just once a month, but still be ready to shut down instantly on a failure signal.
Rack and Pinion Pneumatic Actuators
Optimum Performance: The performance of the El-O-Matic pneumatic actuators is vitally important to your production process. An actuator that does not function well often has serious consequences for the outcome of the process. That is why quality has been the primary concept in the El-O-Matic actuator development. El-O-Matic pneumatic actuators are reliable, quality products, continuously providing optimum performance under all circumstances.
Operating Principle: Pneumatic actuators come in two versions: double acting and single acting (spring return). Both versions are designed in such a way that (with the exception of the position indicator) there are no moving parts on the outside. This makes them safe, easy to install and virtually maintenance free. Furthermore, the compact rack and pinion construction means that El-O-Matic actuators are lightweight and occupy a minimum of space.
