Single Moving Part With No Cranks or Gearing

Kinetrol’s quarter-turn design offers automation of ball valves, butterfly valves, plug valves, triple offset valves, control valves, & dampers. Options include fire fail-safe spring units, stainless steel housings, and food-grade finish housings.


Kinetrol actuators feature an outstanding cycle life, smooth and precise movement, and environmentally rugged design.

  • Most pneumatic actuators convert linear thrust to rotary torque. Kinetrol is a true rotary actuator with only one moving part & can be used on equipment that rotates up to 180 degrees.
  • A separate clock-wound spring, sealed from the surrounding environment, is mounted to the actuator for fail-safe applications.  
  • Actuators are guaranteed up to four million cycles.
  • Kinetrol is utilized in pulp and paper, power generation, steel, mining, lithium value chain, chemical, fibers, petrochemical, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, & industrial water treatment.
