Stainless Food-Grade Actuators

Stainless Food-Grade Actuators

Designed as an alternative to pneumatic cylinders in food and beverage applications, Thomson SA-20 stainless steel linear actuators conform to several hygienic design guidelines and are IP69K rated, enabling sanitary washdown during operation. These actuators also reduce the cost of washdown, including maintenance and air, and eliminate the need for replacement due to leakage.
