UniTorq Actuators & Controls introduced the new UT-ZM declutchable gear override. Available in torque outputs ranging from 1,770 to 61,995 in lbs, the UT-ZM provides a safe, cost-effective solution for manual control of the valve whenever air supply or power to a pneumatic actuator is lost.
The UT-ZM is available with various options. The Isolation Safety Option provides internal porting that automatically blocks and releases air from the actuator, making operation of the gear safer and easier. The internal porting also eliminates the need to assemble extra tubing, tees, valves and fittings, making installation easier and safer. All overrides feature a corrosion-resistant housing that conforms to IP67 protection standards, sturdy die cast aluminium hand wheels, stainless steel declutch bars, and spring-loaded pins that help to lock the unit into position. For additional safety, a Padlock kit can be added to prevent unintended operation.
