PURPOSE

The purpose of this manual is to explain the fundamental concepts of hydraulic and pneumatic power actuators so users with a technical background can understand, specify, and install these actuators on valves and slide gates. The information in this manual must be used in conjunction with data from actuator and valve manufacturers to select and size the correct actuator models for specific applications.

Sizing parameters such as thrust and torque are explained so the sizing methodologies recommended by actuator manufacturers can be applied to specific applications. Also, the effects of certain valve application parameters, such as flow rate or differential pressure, on actuator operation are discussed.
