Food packaging equipment generally requires components that can achieve high speed actuation and withstand the rigors of caustic, "washdown" solutions.
Bimba has designed and maintains an inventory of standard actuators that provide excellent performance in food packaging applications along with control valves and mounting options.
And, of course, customized actuators are available.
Bimba offers three series of standard all stainless actuators;
- The all stainless Original Line® that uses Bimba's tried and true technology but with stainless steel end caps and rod guides.
- Repairable stainless steel repairable Original Line® that allows repairs without the need of tools.
- Repairable stainless steel RS series cylinder designed to reduce contaminant "catch points" for ease of cleaning. Food grade lubricants and USDA approved options make this an attractive cylinder for food processing applications.
PC series cylinder with a stainless steel body and acetal resin rod guide and end cap.
NFPA all stainless tie rod cylinder for food packaging applications requiring a more robust design.
Two Hand Control Valves for hand operated food packaging equipment. This control is encased in a washdown safe, non corrosive enclosure and conforms to OSHA's 1910.217 safety standard.
Stainless steel Alignment Couplers - designed to prevent wear due to misalignment on the cylinders rod guide seals and resists vibrational loosening.
