Asahi/America expands Series 19 actuation line

Asahi/America, the leader in thermoplastic fluid flow technology, has recently expanded its Series 19 electric actuation line to include a multiturn unit capable of operating on diaphragm and gate valves up to 4”. The Series 19 MAV MultiPack multiturn actuator, like all Series 19 actuators, comes standard with multi-voltage capability, a visual position indicator, an LED light to indicate valve position or fault, and auxiliary contacts.

Controlled by firmware, the Series 19 MAV MultiPack is available in two packages as on/off or modulating unit. The MAV MultiPack mounts on Asahi/America Type-14 diaphragm valves and gate valves up to 4”. It includes a heater, one set of dry contacts for PLC confirmation and one for alarm reporting, OLED screen with push buttons, local controls and a QR code for easy and instant access to user manuals.

All Asahi/America Series 19 electric actuators have a corrosion resistant NEMA 4X engineered resin enclosure with stainless steel trim to protect the unit’s reversing, brushless DC motor and permanently lubricated steel gear train. The multi-voltage unit operates at a 70 percent duty cycle for more frequent cycling of the valve. Compatible with most PLCs, the Series 19 is an ideal choice for OEMs and skid manufacturers where space is at a premium, but power cannot be sacrificed.

All Series 19 actuators are CE labeled and compliant, and factory mounted and tested to ensure dependable operation.
