Asahi Electric Actuators for Oil & Gas

February 15, 2012

Asahi’s Series 92 electric actuators have been installed with confidence in a variety of oil and gas applications including pipeline transmission, well head control, water recovery, gas lift, drilling fluids and chemical plants.


The Series 92’s rugged construction, proven design and customizable options make it the perfect work-horse for the oil and gas industries. The Series 92’s enclosure is a die-cast aluminum alloy with a thermally-bonded powder-coat. This combination NEMA Type 4X, 7 and 9 enclosure is bolted together in two sections by eight M8 hex-head cap screws and fitted with an O-ring between the two halves, allowing the Series 92 to weather harsh and hazardous environments.


The internals of the Series 92 actuator feature a permanently lubricated gear-train, hardened steel spur gears, and high duty motors. Two end-of-travel limit switches are mechanically set via adjustable cams for open and close positions. Accessories such as positioners, auxiliary switches, two-wire control relays, and custom wiring configurations are all available factory installed and calibrated in the actuators.
