Asahi/America Introduces Larger Series 19 Actuator Sizes for Butterfly Valves

Asahi/America Introduces Larger Series 19 Actuator Sizes for Butterfly Valves
28 Mar 2024  |
Asahi/America, Inc., the leader in thermoplastic fluid flow technology, has recently expanded its Series 19 SAV electric actuation line to include a larger sized actuator, known as the S400, capable of operating on Asahi/America’s family of 8” and 10” Type-57 butterfly valves. The Series 19 S400 is a part of the SAV Smart Pack® electric actuator product line and is available as an on/off, failsafe, modulating, or modulating failsafe unit.

The Series 19 S400 actuators have an output torque range up to 3540 in-lbs. They feature all of the same standard features as Series 19 product line including a heater, one set of dry contacts for PLC confirmation and one for alarm reporting, OLED screen with push buttons, local controls and a QR code for easy and instant access to user manuals.

All Asahi/America Series 19 electric actuators have a corrosion resistant NEMA 4X engineered resin enclosure with stainless steel trim to protect the unit’s reversing, brushless DC motor and permanently lubricated steel gear train. The multi-voltage unit operates at a 75 percent duty cycle for more frequent cycling of the valve. Compatible with most PLCs, the Series 19 is an ideal choice for OEMs and skid manufacturers where space is at a premium, but power cannot be sacrificed. 

All Series 19 actuators are CE labeled and compliant, and factory mounted and tested to ensure dependable operation. 

This recent addition of the S400 is the latest update to the Series 19 product portfolio that was originally launched in the fall of 2021.
