Kinetrol Blueline Pneumatic Actuators for Foodservice Applications

Kinetrol Blueline actuator

"Blueline" series of pneumatic vane actuators from Kinetrol are designed for use in food service and beverage processing.  The actuators are intended to be installed in areas requiring harsh chemical washing-down. These areas are very tough on most pneumatic actuator types because the actuator is very often adversely affected by the caustic or acidic chemicals used in cleaning.

The Kinetrol Blueline actuator has an applied coating that meets the FDA allowance whereby "Resinous and polymeric coatings may be safely used as the food-contact surface of articles intended for use in producing, manufacturing, packing, processing, preparing, treating, packaging, transporting, or holding food ...".

Kinetrol's rotary design is based upon a single moving part which eliminates additional parts required to convert linear motion to rotary motion. This simple and innovative design provides a highly accurate and extremely reliable actuator for operating foodservice and beverage industry valves, providing outstanding cycle life, smooth and precise movement.

Kinetrol's Blueline Series offers a very economical option for use in foodservice wash-down environments and are in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDA) regulations, including 21 CR 175.300 (Code of Federal Regulations). The combination of Kinetrol's superior actuator design, coupled with the wash-down approved coating, makes a very compelling case to specify the Blueline actuator for your next food and beverage industry actuation requirement.
