Asahi/America, Inc. will showcase their Series 10 electric actuators in booth #8847 at this year’s Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, TX. Asahi’s Series 10 electric actuators have been installed in a variety of oil and gas applications including pipeline transmission, water recovery, and chemical plants.

The Series 10’s enclosure is a die-cast aluminum alloy with a thermally-bonded powder-coat. This ATEX certified enclosure is bolted together in two sections by four M10 socket-head cap screws and fitted with an O-ring between the two halves. The internals of the Series 10 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. Torque switches and auxiliary switches are standard features of the actuator. Accessories such as positioners, two-wire control relays, and custom wiring configurations are all available factory installed and calibrated in the actuators.
