SOMAS Single-acting actuators
SOMAS actuators offer low friction and eliminates any delay. The actuator and valve work as one cohesive unit optimizing the control function as much as possible.
Single-acting (Type A-SC/SO) are more or less designed identically to our double-acting actuators (Type A-DA). The sole difference being that the single-acting model comes with a spring function which can be used as an alternate method for both opening and closing valves.
All valves and their functions are thoroughly tested before they reach you as the end user. All of our solutions meet the requirements presented within all different application areas, both when it comes to function and accessibility.
How are SOMAS actuators used?
When a valve needs to be operated remotely, or is frequently used, it needs to be fitted with some type of actuator. Pneumatic actuators have become highly regarded because of their relatively simple and compact design, great price and because they are (largely) unaffected by whatever conditions they are installed and operated in. By equipping the actuator with various accessories, it can be used for both control applications as well as strictly on/off applications.
Most customers that utilize any of our valves also uses one or several of our pneumatic actuators.
