Quarter Turn Actuator Versatility Meets Design
Modular, resilient, versatile – these are the core properties of the quarter turn actuator DFPD from Festo. This rack and pinion combination is thus the perfect actuator for many requirements in the process industry.
Thanks to its versatility and flexibility, the DFPD can be used in a variety of sectors and markets. Its modern, simple and compact design impresses, whether it is used with ball valves, shut off valves or air dampers in the chemical, pharmaceutical or beverage industry or for water treatment and other areas of process automation, opines the company. The rack and pinion combination is a great addition to the market, in both the single and double-acting versions with maximum torque of up to 2300 Nm.
A Complete Package Covering the Entire Value Chain
The firm states that in combination with the CMSX positioner, it is ideally suited for the analogue control of quarter-turn actuators, e.g. in dosing tasks. Furthermore, the sensor boxes SRBC/SRBE/SRBG enable simple digital control and full position sensing. And this is possible outdoors as well as in potentially explosive environments.
The Namur valves VSNC are certified worldwide in accordance with all the current standards, adds the company. For safety-oriented applications, the robust pilot valves VOFC and VOFD are perfect additions. The solenoid valves can be widely used and meet the highest safety standards (up to SIL3, explosion protection). This allows Festo to provide complete automation of quarter-turn actuators for a large range of applications.
