Tough on the outside, tough on the inside
Water, dust, dirt particles and aggressive media often represent considerable challenges for linear actuators in process automation. Many components may not appear to have any immediate impairment of performance, but strengths and weaknesses soon become apparent in long-term operation. The new DFPI-NB3 from Festo demonstrates the performance which a pneumatic linear actuator is capable of, even under the harshest environmental conditions.
Designed in accordance with ISO 15552 and equipped with an integrated displacement encoder and optimised piston rod guide, this innovative linear actuator delivers high performance over long periods. The chemical and mining industries, energy producers, machine and plant builders, water treatment companies and companies handling bulk goods have in the DFPI-NB3 a top performer with a long service life.
A further advantage of this linear actuator from Festo with regard to its load capacity and enhanced range of applications is its design in accordance with ISO 15552. This includes an optimised piston rod guide, which counteracts the effect of transverse forces on the piston rod and thus makes the DFPI-NB3 also suitable for swivel motions. Thanks to the standard mounting interfaces, users can draw on a comprehensive range of accessories for every installation situation.
