The company's new manPOWER series of rotary valve actuators provides direct mounted, compact, powerful fail-safe spring return automation for a wide range of quarter turn valves. These actuators are manually operated to their "in service" position, then on signal the powerful internal spring strokes the valve to its "fail-safe" position.

By eliminating compressed air, natural gas, electricity or nitrogen power these rugged actuators can remain in service, unattended, outdoors in all types of climatic conditions. These actuators can be activated by a wide range of pilot signals or sensing devices.

Options include:

  • Interface with field mounted SCADA units
  • Pressure pilots to cause actuation on high or low pipeline pressure
  • Limit Switch units, rated Nema 4 or Nema 7, for remote signaling of valve position
  • Solenoid pilot valves for AC or DC control signals
  • Eutectic sensors to cause actuation from fire or high temperature
  • Fast stroking times
  • Speed Controls to slow stroking speed
  • Valve adaption hardware for ball, plug or butterfly valves
