The pneumatic actuator is a cost-effective method for automating any industrial process, efficiently. The wide range of options, materials and configurations enable the valve to be controlled by a button and monitored in real time. 

The pneumatic actuator eliminates the need for an operator to stand near the valves and operate them manually. The operator can now control the movement of the valve remotely, from the control room.


There are two types of pneumatic actuators based on its functionality. The linear actuator and rotary actuator. The linear actuator can actuate the linear valves and the rotary actuator actuates the rotary valves.

The pneumatic actuator can be mounted on the following valves

  • Gate valve
  • Globe valve
  • Plug valve
  • Ball valve
  • Butterfly valve

The following accessories enhance the functions of a pneumatic actuator

  • The switch box informs the operator when the valve is open or closed.
  • The electro-pneumatic positioner controls the valve using a 4-20mA signal.
  • The Namur solenoid valve controls the air supply with an electrical signal.
  • Quick exhaust valve
  • Air filter regulator
  • Throttle plate
  • Needle valve  

Main factors to consider when selecting a pneumatic actuator

  • The substance
  • Available instrument air
  • The valve line pressure
  • Temperature
  • How often the valve will be operated
  • Valve torque
  • Environment
  • Moisture level

The pneumatic actuator is ideal for the following locations and environments

  • Apartment buildings
  • Offices
  • Hospitals
  • Manufacturing factories
  • Oil refineries and oil rigs
  • Power stations
  • Water treatment factories
  • Gas works
  • ATEX areas
  • Offshore locations
