Huco Air Motors Bring Efficiency to Hazardous Application Areas
December 21, 2016
Huco Dynatork 3 air motors bring efficiency, performance and versatility to hazardous application areas. When you require a low cost, efficient and reliable motor for applications in a sensitive environment, the Dynatork 3 air motor from Huco presents an optimum solution.
Designed for efficient, spark-free operation, the Dynatork 3 air motor offers simplicity and high performance even under harsh duty cycles. Affordable, compact and easy to maintain - such benefits have seen Dynatork 3 air motors utilised in the wood, hydrocarbon, paper, paint, food processing and even stealth industries.
The immediate benefit of selecting an air motor is that it offers spark-free operation without resorting to an expensive shielded ATEX-rated electric motor. In hazardous environments it’s important to reduce the risk of sparks wherever possible, so specifying a motor that operates entirely on compressed air is the recommended and most cost effective solution. As a result, the Dynatork 3 air motor is compliant for use in ATEX Zone 1 applications.
The air motor incorporates Huco’s unique free-floating piston technology, which minimizes air leakage past the piston. This ensures that the vast majority of the energy present in the compressed air is converted into motion, resulting in air consumption up to 80 percent less than an equivalent vane air motor. This of course translates into substantial energy savings for end users, even during heavy operation.
Air is supplied at up to 100 psi to each of the three pistons through an integral rotary valve, providing maximum torque from start-up. The motor can also be fitted with torque sensors to provide closed loop feedback for accurate position control without the need for expensive electronic controls.
