Alphair AP series Aluminium actuator

Piston Based Actuators, AP Series

 

Alphair aluminium pneumatic actuators “AP Series”, with internal adjustment, is composed of 17 different models with 90° movement, going from 7 to 10.000 Nm for the double acting version (DA) and from 4 to 4000 Nm for the single acting version (SR); 11 models with 120° and 180° movement, going from 7 to 700 Nm for the double acting version (DA) and from 4 to 120 Nm for the single acting version (SR).

The internal adjustment system, acting on pistons and covers, avoids side-loads on pistons, shaft and body. It assures to the product: compactness, sturdiness, reliability and long-lasting. These series can be coupled with every ISO 5211 compliant valve. Moreover it can also be coupled with valves not in compliance with the a.m. certification. Product can be customized through hard anodizing, nickel-plating and painting.
