Tank valve pneumatic actuators

Overview

Tank valve pneumatic actuators

Our tank valve pneumatic actuators are available in 2 series; AJS series for heavy-duty applications or the AKS series for lighter weight needs.

The AJS actuator series of heavy-duty actuators is also easy to maintain and ideally suited to applications where stainless is preferred. These actuators are available in 0.5" through 4.0" sizes for our tank valves.

Features and benefits

  • Hygienic design with laser-etched serial numbers on the actuator body supports full product traceability and cGMP
  • Lightweight stainless steel and plastic construction with 304 SS sleeve and nylon handle
  • Pneumatic control options to suit your process needs
  • Visual indication of open/closed status
