Double Acting Aluminium Actuator DAN

Double Acting Aluminium Actuators DAN from Omal Automation are double acting actuators for open and closed valve operation as well as cycle regulation. Available from Tectra Automation, DAN converts the energy supplied to the pistons in a non-linear variable torque, resulting in significant energy savings.

Also known as the Omal Automation Scotch Yoke 5° Off-Set Actuator, they are smaller than rack and pinion actuators with the same torque, meaning less space for installation is required. Lower air consumption means less load on the compressor or the option of using a smaller compressor size.

At 5.6 bar the Double Acting Aluminium Actuator provides nominal torque from 15 – 1 920 Nm, model dependant, and air consumption across the 12 variants range from 0.08 – 10.2 l/cycle.

  • 100% in-house manufacturing ensures maximum manufacturing accuracy
  • ATEX certification allows for installation in a potential explosive environment
  • Highest functional safety guaranteed with SIL 3 certification
  • Less friction between piston and cylinder through energised self-lubricating strips for longer life
