Actuators - references from different industries

A21When a valve is remotely controlled, or operated frequently, it must be equipped with some type of actuator. The pneumatic actuator has a unique position in that it is simple in design, compact, price advantageous and basically insensitive to the environment in which it is installed. By providing the pneumatic actuator with different types of accessories, it can be used both for control applications as well as shutdown applications.

It is very few industries who don't use pneumatic actuators. In some industries, however, they use traditionally electric or hydraulic actuators

Examples of industries using pneumatic actuators are pulp&paper industry, chemical and petrochemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, and engine manufacturers.
