Products > EVA Series Actuators



Easytork's patented pneumatic valve actuator improves on the reliability and direct mount ability of vane actuators while simplifying vane’s single-acting design so that vane actuators can be smaller, lighter, and more competitive than single-acting rack & pinions actuators on every measurable scale.



“The introduction of the pneumatic fail-safe actuator without the use of springs, external reservoirs, has significantly changed the pneumatic fail-safe industry. This technology is in line with the global trend towards advancement in durability, safety, efficiency and cost of pneumatic actuators.”

High Cycle Guarantee

EVA has the fewest moving parts of any actuator in the market allowing Easytork to test and warranty its products for 2 years or 2 million cycles. Even with minimal maintenance, our actuators continue to work in harsh environments where other actuators fail. With only one moving piece, and environment air never entering actuator, our actuators are designed to outlast the competition.

Predictable

Non-existent springs cannot fail, the same fail-safe torque at end-of-stroke will be the same for a new actuator as it will be for an used actuator. Springs in spring-return-actuators will decay or break over time. With subpar instrument air, springs are exposed to corrosion. On the fail position movement of the spring, the actuator container effectively becomes a vacuum sucking in environment air. Debris from the environment air attacks the soft sealing of the actuator, creating leakage points. Moisture from the environment air exposes the springs to corrosion.

Most Compact - Smallest and Lightest in Class Actuator



Note: All comparisons below based on model sizes with equivalent fail-end-of-stroke output torques.

Fail-Safe Size Comparison:





Fail-Safe Weight Comparison @ 5.5 BAR (80 PSI):



LOW LIFETIME COST

Cost saving through less air consumption.

Fail-Safe Air Consumption (CW+ CCW) Comparison @ 5.5 BAR (80 PSI):


For the same output torque, EVA uses >25% less air than a single-acting rack & pinion. Versus a comparable double-acting rack & pinion, EVA uses >50% less air.

Throttling

EVA’s pure rotary-to-rotary torque generation guarantees no loss of motion for tighter accuracy. At <0.5% repeatability, Easytork is an industry leading actuator for throttling.

Multiple Functions in One Unit

One Easytork unit will perform multiple functions, depending on your needs.

Convert between double-acting and fail-safe, and fail-open and fail-close (<60 sec). No need to purchase and inventory multiple SKUs for your facility's various needs. And of course, no need to switch out springs.



American Water Works Association (AWWA) C541 Compliant

One of the few pneumatic actuators in the market compliant with AWWA C541.
