pneumatic rack & pinion

Designed and manufactured for the ultimate durability and reliability, “Apollo”® pneumatic rack &
pinion actuators provide outstanding service life.

“Apollo”® rack & pinion actuators have replaceable insert drive adapters in all but the largest models,
and many units have dual ISO 5211 “F” series bolt patterns. The numerous actuator drive and bolt
pattern combinations allow direct mounting of several valve styles
