ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced the Numatics KG Series knife gate valve actuator line. The KG Series is the first knife gate valve actuator that offers the flexibility for fully customizable mounting without extending lead times.
“Customers can tailor our KG Series actuators specifically to their valve’s mounting requirements while still benefitting from Numatics’ industry-leading delivery times,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing - Americas, ASCO Numatics. “Now, project engineers requiring fast lead times will not have to incur additional cost and time making their valves fit to standard actuators’ specifications.”
The KG Series line expands ASCO Numatics’ capability to offer all of the components for knife gate valve automation solutions. Customers can buy both the directional control air valve and valve actuator from one global supplier and benefit from ASCO Numatics’ worldwide sales and technical support.
The new knife gate valve actuator is ideal for the harshest process applications in the chemical, food and beverage, mining, oil and gas, petrochemical, wastewater treatment, and power industries.
Customers can specify mounting hole locations and rod styles for KG Series actuators without lengthening leads times. Actuators with 1.5-inch to 10-inch bore sizes are available in 2 to 3 weeks while models with 12-inch and 14-inch bores are available in 3 to 4 weeks.
The KG Series comes with ASCO Numatics’ global reputation for quality. Its proprietary wear band improves cylinder life by locating piston load at the optimum point and providing maximum column strength at full extension. In addition, the actuator’s popular composite tubing option significantly reduces overall cylinder weight for smoother operation and longer life.
“The KG Series is the ideal choice for design and project engineers desiring the most reliable knife gate actuators with customized mounting options and rapid delivery,” said Kemple.
