Products/Services for Manual Rotary Actuator

  • Pneumatic Valve Actuators-Image
    Pneumatic Valve Actuators - (431 companies)
    Pneumatic valve actuators adjust valve position by converting air pressure into linear or rotary motion. There are two main forms: the piston actuators and diaphragm actuators. Piston actuators are used when the stroke of a diaphragm actuator would...

    Camshafts - (12 companies)
    Camshafts are shafts that contain cams either as an integral part of the shaft or that have been attached to the shaft. As the camshaft rotates, the cams act to actuate different functions - such as a valve opening or a switch closing...

Monosoupape (single-valve) rotary is 9-in. diameter and spins a 24-10 prop at 2,400 rpm. The Gnome is unusual in that its cylinders rotate with the prop while the crankshaft remains fixed. Nine separate cams stacked together actuate poppet exhaust valves. Air, oil, and fuel flow though a hollow crankshaft...
