Purpose designed electro cylinders

Published:  01 July, 2014

Parker_AUGE030A_ETH_HRES.jpgParker Hannifin reports it has extended its ETH range of high thrust electro-cylinders to make them suitable for use in explosive atmospheres (ATEX environments). The company says the new ETH ATEX takes all the advantages of the popular electric cylinder ETH series, transferring them to applications for precise motion, positioning, setting and actuating in explosive environments.

Industries expected to benefit from ETH ATEX include sectors such as oil, gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, automotive (paint shops), biogas generation, gas turbine manufacturing, printing and distilling. For each application, Parker Hannifin says its R&D team will fully test an ETH ATEX cylinder using application data (load, velocity, duty cycle) supplied by the customer. This should ensure that each cylinder can be supplied as ATEX-proofed for its intended purpose.
