Pneumatic actuators are generally recommended because they simplify piping arrangements and minimize environmental pollution problems.
These are advantageous features when compared with hydraulically operated actuators. Also, unlike electric actuators, care required for inflammable or explosive servicing environments is much less when pneumatic actuators are installed.
Application of pneumatic actuators has grown dramatically in recent days for their cost and energy saving advantages.
KITZ proudly introduces B/F Series pneumatic actuators which are readily mountable on all KITZ ball and butterfly valves. Ball and Butterfly valves constructed similarly to KITZ valves may also be satisfactorily operated with KITZ pneumatic actuators.
