Kinetrol actuators for abusive environments

10 October 2018

A iron foundry located in the Midwest asked the local Kinetrol distributor to assist with replacement of a failing rack and pinion actuator on a very high cycle exhaust valve. The environment was dirty and the actuator cycles were approximately 100,000 times per month. The rack and pinion actuator was replaced with a Kinetrol vane actuator, which has now performed for over 2 years without a problem.
