The Asahi actuator (Electric) range have been in service now for over 30 years with the series 92 (Master Chief) & 94 (Quarter Master) models leading the automation way for this worldwide, leading manufacturer.
Torque ranges of 15NM for your small bore valves all the way up to 225NM with the Master Chief, this Asahi actuator certainly lives up to its name! Available Voltages include 12/24/120/240 AC 50/60Hz & 12/24Vdc.
Two types of corrosion resistant housing with Zytel FR50 Engineered resin & a Thermally Bonded Baked Powder Coating will give you all the options you need for any hazardous area issues you may come across for your application. Couple this with a rating up to and including NEMA 9 (Minimum NEMA 4X standard) the Asahi actuator delivers a reliable, long standing unit you can basically fit & forget.
Highly Visible Position Indicators as you will be able to see in the pictures below enable the user to quickly check the position of the Valve, even from a distance. End travel limit switches can also be used for light indication. Both the series 92 (Master Chief) & 94 (Quarter Master) come with Declutchable Manual Overrides & Failsafe battery backup as standard, giving you peace of mind that the Valve will return to its setup up position in the event of a power failure and can still be manually operated should this be required.
Benefits of Asahi Actuators
There are many benefits to using an Asahi Electric Actuator over your standard Pneumatic Actuators. This can include high maintenance and running costs of airline equipment and difficulty of installation in remote areas. Cold temperatures can also be damaging for Air Supply Lines and hence effect the reliability of the valve.
Both the Series 92 & 94 Series are available from stock in the UK @ Actuation Valve & Control Ltd and can offer a same day size, assemble & testing service with the Valve of your choice as you will be able to see in the pictures above. It is also worth noting the the Asahi Electric Actuators are UL approved.
