PDC LLC announces the launch of electric actuators

Process Development & Control, LLC (PDC), a Pittsburgh based valve and actuator manufacturer, announced the launch of its comprehensive line of Electric Actuators to be marketed under their Magnus Force brand. PDC had earlier successfully introduced a line of Pneumatic quarter-turn actuators under the Magnus Force brand name in 2018. 

Established in 1970, PDC is a world-renowned supplier of custom damper butterfly valves that have been widely used in air management, water/wastewater, and other industries. Most recently PDC has embarked on a diversification of its product portfolio introducing a check valve product line, Elastotite, that has a unique patented elastomer hinge that improves valve performance, reliability, and useful life. As part of this effort, PDC also introduced its pneumatic quarter-turn actuator under the Magnus Force brand name as an economical third-party alternative for the valve and actuation industry.

“With the introduction of our Magnus Force electric actuators, we are moving closer to our long-term vision for PDC as a world-renowned supplier of economical valve and actuation products,” said Mark Santo, President of PDC. “The electric actuator line includes quarter turn and spring return designs in both watertight and explosion-proof options. Our customers have been asking us for a PDC branded electric actuator for use with PDC valves as well as for automating third-party valves and we’re pleased to introduce this product.”

The Magnus Force Electric Actuator products come with CSA Certifications for Watertight and Class 1 Div. 1 and 2, as necessary. PDC expects to introduce many new products in the valve and actuator market space as it executes on its strategic plan for long-term growth.
