SC/VLT - Lift&Turn actuator


The Lift&Turn actuator (SC/VLT) is made by two main parts:  

  • the cylinder group, with a piston inside that divides the internal volume in two chambers. The actuator stem connects the piston to the valve stem. 
  • The yoke, that fix the cylinder to the valve and defines valve movement (linear and rotary movement).  

Different kind of pneumatic accessories could be mounted on the SC/VLT valve actuator depending on the performance required. 
This actuator has been purposely designed for valve like the double block and bleed plug, a replacement to the conventional multi-valve system.


    • Built in lubrication system makes it virtually maintenance free
    • Direct connection between position indicator and valve stem without intermediate mechanism
    • Fully stainless steel design available
    • Yoke not only as support but with slide guide function
    • Manifold mounted 3-way valves and accessories for optimal performances and increased safety
    • Travel stop adjustable during opening
