Precision die-cast pistons with large cylinder bearings increase efficiency and cycle life. The actuators incorporate a precision extruded hard anodized aluminum body and a one-piece nitride-coated pinion gear, factory lubricated for a long trouble-free life. Actuators are designed for 100-degree travel with clockwise and counter clockwise travel adjustment for open and closed positions. Available in torque ranges from 25 to 58,000 in-lbs, for optimum actuator sizing.

The SXL® Series utilizes a 316 Series stainless steel housing and is ideal for use in corrosive environments. It is available in both double acting and spring return and can be supplied with optional stainless steel internals. For sanitary applications the housing can be polished. Available in torque ranges from 78 to 7279 in-lbs.
