Assets do not break down. Components do.
No Springs = Predictable and Safe
Eliminating springs removes another common failure point. Air reservoir avoids spring issues developed over time including: spring fatigue, spring drift, spring decay, and/or one or more unnoticed broken springs in a spring nest. Non-existent springs cannot fail.
Dirty Air? Dirty Environment? No Problem
"A review of nuclear industrywide pneumatic system problems indicated that 49 percent of all failure events resulted from contamination in the system...the principle source of foreign material is rust within the instrument air system and induction of foreign material (primarily dirt) with the air intake."
Have you ever wondered why there is so much contamination inside actuators? It's not all from "instrument air". No matter how well-built, any actuator with springs will vacuum in the environment into the actuator, wrecking the seals and the springs.
The Easytork actuator always exhausts out instrument air. The environment will never enter an Easytork actuator because of our usage of an air reservoir as a fail-safe mechanism.

Direct Mounts to Most Valve BrandsThe Most Adaptable Actuator in the Market
"Does this actuator fit that valve?" You probably spend a lot of time and money to match different brands of actuators and valves together. Easytork helps simplify things. Our actuators mount to almost all valve brands and actuator accessories such as limit switches and positioners. Whether it's for a new large-scale project, maintenance/retrofit, or a 1 unit replacement, Easytork will bring a peace of mind from planning to installation to operation and get your process up and running quickly.
Most Compact and EfficientSmallest, Lightest, Fastest, Most Cost Efficient Actuator
Easytork actuators are more efficient than spring return actuators by almost a multiple of 2x since Easytork does not need to counteract the tertiary spring force that spring-return actuators require. As such, with the same output torque as spring return actuators, Easytork actuators are significantly smaller, lighter, faster, and more cost efficient.
To put this into perspective, a spring return actuator for a 12" butterfly valve would weigh 120 lbs and would require a team to assemble. An Easytork actuator for the same valve weighs 50 lbs and one person can complete the assembly. Easytork's size and weight have significant impact for applications where space is rare commodity such as skid applications.
Fast Acting Solution: Easytork can rotate the same 12" butterfly valve in less than 1 second where spring return actuators take at least 2 seconds or even longer.
