Component Highlight: Baelz Actuators

Posted by Baelz North America on Apr 3, 2018 11:32:43 AM

Thrust, speed, power, and precision: the right actuator is a key element of equipment performance in applications across almost all industries. Heavy duty manufacturing plants, marine industries, as well as automotive plants all rely on specialized actuators.

Baelz offers a complete line of actuator solutions, with emphasis on two major types: electric and pneumatic. The most recent specialty addition, the E65 model, is the first to feature a spring assisted fail position with either an open or closed solution.

New Electric Actuator: The Baelz E65

baelz 373-E65The E65 model electric actuator can be ordered as a fail pulling or pushing position under power loss: what sets this actuator apart is its spring assisted movement. The E65 offers the same power supply options as a standard electric actuator (115V, 230V, 24V) with superior fail position technology, pushing the spindle and plug down or pulling it up in the event of a power loss thanks to its spring assist.

For instance, in the case of a 3-way valve, an actuator will fail in either the closed or open position. Depending upon its orientation and the available option to either pull or push while power can be accessed, the actuator will either close off the flow of AB to A ports or close the flow to the B port, thus opening the flow through AB to A ports bidirectionally.

Models and Variations

The innovative spring assist of the E65 adds security in the case of power loss; all other Baelz electric actuator models will fail in the last position during such an event.

The Baelz E65 is available with a number of distinct variations, including:

  • Baelz 373-E65-D-20 (pushing), designed to push the spindle down under power loss for models 342 and 347. The actuator will open AB to A, and it will close the B port.

  • Baelz 373-E65-Z-20 (pulling), designed to pull the spindle up under power loss for models 342 and 347. The actuator will close AB to A, and it will open the B port.

  • Outdoor Execution, equipped with a stainless-steel hood and thermostatic heater inside for high performance in extreme conditions. The outdoor-use E65 can support temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius, and its hood ensures protection for all electrical components. In addition to capacity for low temperatures, the outdoor model is also ideal for installation in high dust or pollutant-heavy areas, as well as harsh marine environments.
