An actuator is something that converts energy into motion. It also can be used to apply a force. An actuator typically is a mechanical device that takes energy — usually energy that is created by air, electricity or liquid — and converts it into some kind of motion. That motion can be in virtually any form, such as blocking, clamping or ejecting. Actuators typically are used in manufacturing or industrial applications and might be used in devices such as motors, pumps, switches and valves.
GEORGE FISCHER PIPING SYSTEMS has the optimal actuator configuration for your individual needs. George Fischer offers electric and pneumatic actuation for diaphragm, ball and butterfly valves. Coupled with the actuator are several control options to compliment sophisticated plant management.
