PneuMaster

Pneumatic diaphragm actuator

The PneuMaster pneumatic diaphragm actuator is a diaphragm-type actuator that complements our field-proven pneumatic actuators offerings. The PneuMaster actuator delivers reliable, fail-safe performance when returning the gate valve to the closed position. This actuator also can be mounted on either the upper master or wing valve and can be operated by clean well gas or an air supplied well panel. 

Designed and built to the industry’s highest standards, the PneuMaster pneumatic diaphragm actuator delivers simplicity, low weight, durability, and ease of maintenance. Because this actuator is lighter than standard piston-type actuators, it is ideal for tension-leg platforms (TLPs) and other weight-sensitive applications.

Features

  • Rising stem that provides visual indication of valve position
  • Light weight that allows for easy installation and maintenance
  • Nonelastomeric bonnet seal design provides superior sealing in harsh environments
  • Molygard wiper rings prevent stem galling during operation and prohibit foreign particles on the surface of the stem from entering the actuator body and damaging the dynamic seal system
  • External safety relief device protects the actuator from overpressurization
