New food industry actuators by Kinetrol

Kinetrol USA has officially introduced its Blueline Series of pneumatic vane actuators for use in food service and beverage processing, according to ValveWorld. The actuators are intended to be installed in areas where harsh chemical wash-down is required. This new series of actuators takes advantage of the Blueline coating serties, designed for food production applications and meeting FDA and BfR L1 specification, including good resistance to “caustic washdown” and chipping/flaking, non-stick properties and good resistance to salt-laden environments.
In extreme circumstances if the coating becomes dislodged, it is clearly visible to the human eye, and sensors/detectors used in food production.
