Innovative Pneumatic Cylinder from Norgren for considerable energy and cost savings
What does every end-user want from their pneumatic equipment? I think to name a few; cost savings, energy savings, reduced downtime, reduced maintenance, easy installation & integration, and easy maintenance.
Norgren claim, in the form of the new IVAC Pneumatic Cylinder, they have achieved these benefits, by working closely with end-user’s and actually listening to what they want.
This article will describe the innovative features of the IVAC Pneumatic Cylinder and will explain the innovative technology behind the product, which allows it to claim such dramatic energy and operating costs for end-users.
Reduced energy costs
Norgren claim the IVAC Pneumatic Cylinder reduces energy consumption by up to 50%. How exactly does the IVAC cylinder achieve this?
- The patented design and technology reduces CO2 emissions and KW Hrs
- The consolidation of parts and innovative design minimises dead volume – the IVAC only uses air in the cylinder, and not the air in the tubing. This reduces energy consumption considerably.
- Reduced air means the cost per mm of stroke is significantly reduced.
Easy installation and Integration
Norgren claim the IVAC Pneumatic Cylinder is easily installed, maintained and integrated with both existing and new systems. What makes the IVAC different to other pneumatic cylinders?
- The IVAC Pneumatic Cylinder is a weight-optimised actuator
- It has fully integrated valve and magnetically operated switches for complete actuator control
- It has reduced components; it has fully integrated sensor adjustment, fully integrated flow controls & integrated pressure protection
- It has 1 single M12 connection, 1 single air connection and 1 single exhaust port.
These features allow the IVAC Pneumatic Cylinder to be easily retrofitted or integrated within new systems.
