COVID-19 3/23/20 Update: Easytork is fully operational as a critical manufacturer of actuators, essential in numerous critical infrastructure sectors such as water, power, chemical, energy, food and agriculture, government facilities, healthcare, critical manufacturing, and transportation systems. We have full capabilities to provide time-critical components and solutions, backed by our well-stocked inventory at our St. Louis, MO USA facility. We stand ready to support our customers and partners. We will get through this together.

Easytork Patented Spring-Less Pneumatic 1/4 Turn Vane Actuators


World's smallest, lightest, most efficient, most accurate pneumatic actuator




Compared to a spring & diaphragm actuator for control valves, our patented control actuator is

1/10th the weight, 1/6th the size, uses 1/4th of air, has better/equal benchmark test performance, and more cost effective




Actuator fugitive emissions reductions of up to 75% during the dynamic state, with zero bleed at static state

Finally, an Actuator Designed with Process Control Operators and Engineers in Mind - First and Foremost


Easytork's patented technology of integrating a spring-less fail-safe system within the actuator body makes our actuator the EASIEST actuator to install, operate, and maintain, all while reducing the initial and total cost of ownership and allowing your process to operate more efficiently.

While other existing actuation technology is over 50 years old, our actuator effectively addresses modern process control issues that engineers and process users/operators face daily.

Accessories / Ancillaries to Complete Your Valve Automation Needs


Easytork Solenoid Valve (ESV)

Patented solenoid valve covers a full range of applications including NEMA 4, Ex-Proof, ATEX EX, I-Safe, Low-Temp, and Low Power. From 24VDC, 120 VAC, and 240 VAC.

Easytork Air Pilot Valve (EPV)

Even with a third party solenoid valve, users can convert EVA double-acting actuator to fail-safe through Easytork's patented air pilot valve.

Easytork Namur Trip Valve (NTV)

Installing or not installing Easytork’s NTV with a double-acting positioner determines what function (fail-safe, in open or close, or double-acting) the actuator has. Any 4-20ma or 3-15 psi double acting positioner in the market works with the system.

Limit Switches

Easytork offers a full range of NEMA 4 and explosion proof applications.

Lockout & Partial Stroke Test

Integral add on to EVA actuators without adding hysteresis to valve connection.

Declutchable Gear Operator (Updated May '19)

High strength and high torque.

Mounting Hardware

When direct-mount is not an option, our adaptable shafts, drive inserts, and brackets eliminate need for couplers and their associated costs and mechanical issues. Easytork mounting hardware will not cause stem side loading and protects actuator valve stem from leakage.

Easytork is the proud recipient of the Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award in the pneumatic actuators market
