ITT Engineered Valves 2.1 Advantage Actuator


The Advantage 2.1 actuator is the latest evolution in the time-tested Advantage actuator series, which has been a mainstay of the Bioprocessing Industry for the past twenty years. This innovative actuator features a patent-pending compressor attachment method that allows for seamless interchangeability between PTFE and elastomer diaphragms without the need for actuator disassembly, enhancing versatility and ease of maintenance.

With a size range of ½" to 2" (DN15-DN50) and multiple operating modes, including fail close, fail open, and double acting, the Advantage 2.1 actuator is designed to meet the demanding requirements of various bioprocessing applications. Its rugged construction, featuring a stainless steel bonnet and corrosion-resistant materials, ensures reliable performance and longevity in harsh environments.
