Following you will find the cylinders (actuators) that Skeans has to offer. If your need isn't on this list.... it hasn't been invented yet!

NFPA

Standard Interchangeable Tie Rod Style Cylinders.

Bimba NFPA Cylinder

Bimba NFPA Cylinder Non-Tie Rod, Double Wall

Our tie-tube NFPA-interchangeable cylinders are easy to repair and take up less space than other cylinders. The Double-Wall Cylinders convert into six NFPA mounting styles and utilize easy to assemble "bolt on" mounting kits. Our Repairable Stainless Steel Cylinders use a corrosion resistant 303 stainless steel rod guide that is ideal for wash down applications and is designed specifically to reduce sharp edges and corners and provide a smooth transition to the cylinder body.

  • Double walled to fit NFPA envelope dimensions
  • Good for food, beverage industries
  • Clean smooth epoxy coated tubing

Rotary

A rotary actuator is an actuator that produces a rotary motion or torque.The simplest actuator is purely mechanical, where linear motion in one direction gives rise to rotation. The following are powered by pneumatic power, however we do have electronic (servo) types available. The motion produced by an actuator may be either to a fixed angular position, or a continuous rotation (electric motor).
