A better approach for effective actuator maintenance and longer service life
Quarter-turn and linear actuators are used in many remotely operated valve and damper applications in nuclear facilities. AZZ Nuclear supplies pneumatic, hydraulic and motor-driven quarter-turn and linear actuators for a wide variety of nuclear plant applications.
The quarter-turn pneumatic actuator is the workhorse for most small to medium sized valves. Commercial actuators are designed to be inexpensive and are simply replaced with newer models when worn out. This strategy is not aligned with nuclear facility practices. AZZ Nuclear takes a different approach and manufactures the only premium quarter-turn pneumatic actuator specifically designed for ease of maintenance and long life. The QTRCO all stainless steel actuator is quickly becoming the industry standard for safety-related applications and is also available in a version qualified for harsh high-radiation service.
