Kinetrol’s “Blueline” Series of pneumatic vane actuators are for use in food service and beverage processing.

The actuators are intended to be installed in areas where harsh chemical wash-down is required. These areas are very tough on most types of pneumatic actuators because the caustic or acidic chemicals used in cleaning adversely affect the actuator.

Kinetrol’s Blueline Series provides a very economical option for use in these areas.

Blueline Actuators are permitted for use in contact with food in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDA) and all applicable regulations, including 21 CR 175.300 (Code of Federal Regulations).

The new actuator has an applied coating that meets with the FDA’s allowance whereby “Resinous and polymeric coatings may be safely used as the food-contact surface of articles intended for use in producing, manufacturing, packing, processing, preparing, treating, packaging, transporting, or holding food …”.
