It is designed for diaphragm valves used for sterile applications in the beverage, food and pharmaceutical industries. In the MD30-MD202 actuator range, the actuator housing and the valve bonnet are made from a single piece of material.

Compared with predecessor models, this design change reduces the actuator’s overall height so that less space is required to accommodate block-bodied multi-port valves. In addition to the stainless steel variant, the two largest actuator sizes are also available in aluminium.

The actuator can be fitted to the valve body without nuts as the threads are integrated in the body and the orientation of the air connection can be adjusted in 90° steps.
