Rack-and-pinion pneumatic actuators, also called limited rotation cylinders, are rotary actuators used for turning, opening, closing, mixing, oscillating, positioning, steering and many more mechanical functions involving restricted rotation. These actuators are also often used for automation of quarter-turn valves, like ball or butterfly valves. Pneumatic rack-and-pinion actuators convert energy of compressed air by means of pneumatic cylinder to an oscillating rotary motion. The clean, dry, and processed gas required by this actuator is provided via a central compressed air station, which usually supports a range of pneumatic devices in a process system. Pneumatic actuators, in comparison to their electric counter parts, are generally more durable, better suited for hazardous environments and less expensive. In addition, they often require less maintenance and provide higher torque that needs to be calculated in order to find minimal air pressure required to rotate specific load. For the basic rack-and-pinion rotary table with size 10 horizontaly positioned there is a mounting plate applied. For the details check the image of the Rotary table.
