Centork announced the launch of a modular electric valve actuation system designed to deliver a highly reliable, economical and flexible solution for duties and applications of all descriptions in many industries.
Conceived as a series of interchangeable modular building blocks, the new CK design can facilitate swift delivery from stock, a feature that is attractive to valve makers and end-users alike. Centork CK actuators provide isolating or modulating control of multi-turn, part-turn or linear valves. Operating from single-phase or three-phase electrical supplies, all actuators are environmentally sealed to IP68 as standard for long-term reliability in harsh operating conditions. Plug and socket connections for power supplies and between modules assist swift site wiring and provide a simple connection platform for upgrades and modifications.
The modular construction presents a wide range of options and features, enabling each actuator to closely match its specific valve duty and function. The choice ranges from basic actuators requiring separate motor controls to sophisticated versions equipped with the state-of-the-art Centronik intelligent digital control unit.
CK actuators are manufactured in a range of sizes complying with international actuator design standards EN15714-2 and EN ISO 5210. Manual handwheel operation, designed to standard EN12570, is independent of the motor drive and selected with a lockable hand/auto lever acting on a safe, low speed clutch.
