OPERATION AND INSTALLATION MANUAL INTRODUCTION

1 INTRODUCTION

The manufacturer owns the present publication.


This instruction manual contains important information regarding the installation, operation,
maintenance and storage for HP Series rack and pinion pneumatic actuator.
HP series actuators are compact, high cycle, high quality pneumatic double rack & pinion pneumatic
actuator specifically designed to meet the demanding needs of the quarter turn valve automation market.
HP actuators provide a wide range of torque outputs to suit quarter turn ball, butterfly, plug and
damper valves, together with the APL range of valve position monitors for complete valve
automation solutions.
Quality has been our primary concept in actuator development, the latest manufacturing technologies
have been employed to provide both quality and performance on every HP actuator produced.

OPERATION AND INSTALLA TION MANUAL Warning

2 Warning

Actuator must be isolated both pneumatically and electrically before any disassembly is begun.
Before mounting or disassembling the actuator consult the relevant sections of this manual.
Do not operate the actuator using inflammable, oxidising, corrosive, explosive and unstable gases
or liquids. For actuators installed in potentially explosive zones, make sure that the internal parts
of the actuator cannot come into contact with the external atmosphere.
It is important that the actuator should only be used within pressure limits indicated in our technical
specifications. Operating the actuator over pressure limits will damage internal parts as well as cause
damage to the housing. Operating the actuator over temperature limits will damage internal and external
components.(diassembly of spring return actuator may become dangerous).
Operating the actuator over in corrosive environments with incorrect protection may damage
the internal and external parts.
Do not disassemble individual spring cartridage. Disassemble may result in personal injury.
Isolate all air lines and make sure that actuator air connection is vented before installation or servicing
of the actuator.
Do not remove end caps or disassemble the actuator while the actuator is perssurised.
Before installing on to a valve make sure that the rotation of the actuator are the same and that
the postion indicator orientation is also correct.

v v v v

Operating temperature : standard -20 C(-4 F) ~ 80 C(176 F)


Operating the actuator over temperature limits will damage
internal and externalcomponents.

GGDo not operate the actuator using inflammable,


oxidising, corrosive, explosive and unstable gases
or liquids.

/ valve are correctly orientated.

Important : When using a spring return actuator for a fail


safe operation, ensure that when air or electricity failure
Valve occurs the direction of rotation is corredt for your application.
(B rac k et mounting)
There are two types of valve assembly onto the actuator:

*B racket-mount : Mounting with a bracket and coupling


the bracket is bolted to the actuator / valve to join them
together and the coupling is used to connect the
actuator output drive to the valve stem
Valve (max. tightening torque see table).
(Direc t mounting)
*Diredt-mount : Fit the square of the valve directly into the
square of the actuator and bolt together
through the valve IS O pad
(max. tightening torque see table above).

C aution! Never disassemble a valve


that is under pressure!
