Actuator Offers More Commonality, Higher Performance

April 27, 2010
Designed for a new level of conformity, the actuator is equipped with higher bench ranges that allow for an increase in pressure drop capacities and an increase in flow capacities. The valve assembly is also more compact, because the stem and yoke are shorter in the new actuator design, which means the unit will require less space when installed in a gas, oil, water, steam or corrosive liquid transfer system. The actuator has already been fitted to the Model 2296 and the Model 987, with a slight modification of the stem length. This same actuator will also be used to replace the existing actuator on the Model 2266 valve in 1 ½- and 2-inch sizes and be designated as a Model 2296HF, or a 2296 “High Flow” valve.
