The Safoco actuator combines simplicity with ease of maintenance provide an extraordinary value in a SSV actuator.
Its operating principal and rugged design, make the Safoco actuator inherently trouble-free. The actuator design has eliminated the problems of downtime and added safety features vital to today's customer requirements. The Safoco actuator is designed for most surface safety applications.
The Safoco actuator utilizes concepts that eliminate galling, misalignment and distortion during operation.
The close tolerance problem has been eliminated by providing wear bearings in the actuator and bonnet to suspend the top shaft and bonnet stem from contacting metal during operation.
Safoco has designed into each model, series and size actuator, the industry's strongest compression spring. This is important to ensure gate valve closure. No special tools are required when loading the compression spring.
