October 21, 2013

Spirax-102113-body.jpgSpirax Sarco has introduced its new AEL 5 series electric actuator range for ½-in to 4-in control valves. The AEL 5 series electric actuators are reversible having linear output. Its internal components such as the PCB, positioner card, and limited switches are affixed to a more durable and sturdy aluminum support for holding and/or fitting accessories. The company says this range has been developed with an easy commission limit switch adjuster. This design allows the user to loosen the cam with one screw and then adjust its position with a second screw making it easier to adjust. One of the main benefits to the AEL 5 series is the valve adaptor helps to improve the installation process. It was engineered to simplify the process and remove the need to assemble the disc springs as well as minimizing the chance of thread damage and errors.
