Max-Air Technology is a worldwide leader in automation technology and process control products. For over 15 years Max-Air has engineered improvements and added flexibility & interchangeability features to our line of valve actuators. The primary goal has been to provide customers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, power, oil & gas, wastewater and damper industries with cost effective advanced automation solutions.
Our full line of pneumatic control products—including our industry recognized rack & pinion actuators—provide cost-effective solutions for the most complicated flow requirements, including diverting and multi-port flow applications across a wide array of industries. Our patented adjustable dual-travel stops provide the greatest degree of control in the industry at ±5 degrees on end of the stroke.
2-Piston design offers an actuator simple enough for easy configurability and trouble-free maintenance, yet highly engineered for consistent long-life performance. Max-Air is so confident in the durability of our design that we stand behind our MT Series actuators with an unlimited cycle life warranty. (See Max-Air Unlimited Cycle Life Warranty for details.)
Here are the key 5 elements that makes selecting the Max-Air Technology Actuator MT08 DA a superior choice for valve automation:
HONED BORE FOR HIGH CYCLE-LIFE
Extruded aluminum body is internally machined and honed to exact specifications. Honing prevents dry spots from forming within the actuator bore and therefore eliminates premature seal failure—a critical aspect to long cycle-life.
Shaft bearings isolate the pinion gear from the housing and support the shaft for high-cycle applications.
HIGH CYCLE-LIFE WEAR PADS
Pistons incorporate double wear pads (skates) to separate the rack from the actuator wall and serve as both guide and wear bearings.
RUGGED TOOTH DESIGN
The pinion teeth are engaged the full length and stroke of the piston. The pinion height allows manual override without needing to remove the indicator.
DEGREE OF TRAVEL
The standard angle of rotation is 90°. Max-Air actuators feature dual travel stops that provide ± 5° stroke rotation on both the opening and closing phases of the actuator stroke. 95° of travel in a standard 90° actuator!
The ShopCross and Max-Air Valve Actuator line is made complete with all of the control accessories required—solenoid valves, limit switches, positioners, and a wide assortment of automation hardware.
