Today’s valves are multi-functional, used in industries ranging from refineries, petrochemicals, fertilizers, sugar, cement, power plants, chemical process industries, water and effluent treatment, food & beverages, pulp and paper, oil &gas, etc.
Actuators control not only the flow, but the rate, volume, pressure or the direction of liquids, gases, slurries or dry materials through a pipeline, chute or similar passageway. They can turn on and turn off, regulate, modulate, or isolate.Controlling such conditions is very important in industries such as oil & gas manufacturing to maintain a steady flow of materials within safe limits.
An actuator may be defined as a powered device that produces torque or thrust to move avalve stem or damper louver for the purpose of some process control. Actuators are available in manual, pneumatic, electric, hydraulic, or electrohydraulic configuration, and some employed with a fail-safe spring return in case of power failure.
Alltork Actuation is a division of VL Motion Systems Inc., and was established to focus on the niche market of Valve Actuation for industrial use. As such, Alltork is serious about successfully servicing municipalities, oil and gas industries and improving the efficiency of wastewater treatment plants in Canada.
What differentiates us from our competitors are our scalable, customized valve actuation solutions in the industrial market place. We aim to create value and make a difference while building strong, long term relationships. We thrive on knowledge and ongoing product research whilst fostering new partnerships to help us provide our clients with the latest in valve actuation technology.
Our product range includes a vast array ofmanual, motorised, pneumatic, and electro-hydraulic actuators – from explosion proof actuators adapted to all types of valves, modulating motorised valve actuators designed to position the valve precisely and to withstand an intensive operation service to speciallydesigned valve actuators.
Thanks to many years of experience and know-how, we have developed product ranges adapted to most critical applications.
