The bodies have screwed connections and are fitted with replaceable screw-in seats. Plugs can be metal seat or fitted with 0-rings to give tight closure.
Two actuator types each with two actions are available to allow either port to be close by the spring in the event of air failure (see specification). The type R130 can accept operating pressures up to 8.5 BarG making it ideal for direct operation from air supply lines operating in the 6/8 BarG range.
The R130 can be fitted with solenoid or pneumatic control valves for remote operation and limit switches to give indication of stem position.
