New Jamesbury Spring Actuator Is Compact, Corrosion-Resistant, Economical

—Literature Offered Jamesbury Corp., a subsidiary of Combustion Engineering, Inc., has introduced the new Jamesbury V15SR spring return pneumatic vane actuator.

According to the manufacturer, this unique actuator fills applications in any piping system involving automatic valve operation where the valve must quickly close (or in certain instances open) in the event of air supply or electrical failure, thereby providing for more reliable fluid handling.

The Jamesbury V15SR is made of polyester thermoplastic and stainless steel construction which makes the actuator extremely corrosion resistant—this is not a coating, but a unique molded polyester thermoplastic construction.

The Jamesbury V15SR is rated at 60 psi supply pressure (125 psi max.), suitable for operating ball valves in lA -inch to 2-inch sizes. The actuator is available in both spring-to-close and spring-to-open designs. It is an extremely compact actuator and weighs only five pounds. The spring return cartridge is a sealed housing with a spring of infinite life design. A high visibility position indicator is mounted on top of the spring return cartridge. Optional limit switches mount directly to the V15SR without requiring linkage.
