Actuator for food and chemicals

Danaher Motion has introduced two new linear actuators to its Movopart range, part of the Thomson Tollo brand. The linear actuators are designed to meet the demand for actuators that can cope with more demanding environments. The new Movopart S1 and S2 additions use stainless steel of grade BS 3506 A2 or higher to meet the wash down requirements of the dairy and food industries. Danaher Motion has used stainless steel for all moving parts, except in the case of bearings, where they specified radially sealed, high-performance bearings. The Movopart S1 is screw driven, and available in prism guide and ball guide models. Typical applications
include dairy plants and other light wash-down applications. The Movopart S2 is intended for use in the toughest chemical environments, with both acid and basic liquids present. This is facilitated by the use of the more corrosion-resistant A4 stainless steel for all outer fastenings. The S2 is belt driven, and uses a prism guide. Both the S1 and S2 are available in standard M55, M75 and M100 sizes.
