The new Kinetrol model 15 actuator bridges the large torque output difference between the model 14 and 16 actuators, consumes almost 30% less air per stroke than the model 16 actuator, is internally ported for NAMUR solenoid valve mounting, and allows direct mounting of Kinetrol positioners and switches.
“It’s exciting when a new product reduces costs, increases competitiveness and improves efficiency for customers,” says Greg Mitchell, General Manager Kinetrol USA.

Emerson Process Management has released the Fisher P700 rotary style actuator for use with Fisher C series internal valves in LP-Gas services. These actuators offer a reliable method to remotely operate internal valves on storage tanks, bobtail route trucks, and bulk transports.
The P700 series actuators assure efficient performance of both the actuator and the Fisher C series internal valve to deliver full valve capacity. It is designed to precisely actuate Fisher internal valves and eliminate side-load wear. The P700 series minimizes actuator air consumption, while maximizing service life. The rotary actuators provide easy installation, durable construction, and reliable performance.
The P700 series actuators are compatible with air, nitrogen, or propane vapor. They includes a ¼” UL® approved thermal fuse plug to provide shutoff in the event of an emergency situation and feature a maximum allowable inlet pressure of 125 PSIG.

The new compact Group 75 rotary actuator incorporates a synchronous, permanent-magnet motor and an efficient spur gear drive train insuring years of reliable service, extremely low power requirements, and excellent positioning performance. Additionally, the motor will never overheat and cannot burn-out.
The new design is not only smaller and lighter, but it also incorporates technologies that make an optional high temperature (250˚F / 120˚C) version possible, exceeding Beck’s standard 185˚F / 85˚C rating. These features make it easy to install the Group 75 in space-restricted and difficult service environments, and it is particularly well-suited for all types of rotary valve applications.

The Group 29 linear valve actuator is designed to provide precise, reliable control of all types of modulating globe valves. It offers the excellent performance and maintenance-free design typical of all Beck drives, as well as the flexibility and advanced features provided by microprocessor-based electronics.
Ideally suited for process control applications in even the harshest environments, the Group 29 handles valve thrust requirements up to 6,100 lbs. and is easily mounted on most valves. In addition to the ordinary agency location approvals, the Group 29 can be rated for hazardous locations as well. Contact the factory for available classifications.
